Award winning master builder Jennian Homes Waiarapa is the in the final stages of preparing their new show home for opening in historic Greytown.

The three bedroom home is located a stone’s throw from the main draw card of Greytown, the Victorian Architecture and Heritage buildings which line the streets, leading the town to be named amongst the prettiest in the North Island.

Greytown remains a popular weekend and holiday destination for many New Zealanders, allowing Managing Director of Jennian Homes Waiarapa Gareth Norris to showcase his award winning homes to those looking at retreating to the “fruit bowl of the Waiarapa”.

Mr Norris is the current Jennian Homes franchisee of the year, having also recently expanded his portfolio to include the Wellington franchise.

He says that the Greytown show home is a jewel in the crown of his Waiarapa franchise and looks forward to sharing the home’s splendour with the public on 12th December.

“The Greytown home is a beautiful reflection of what the Waiarapa region is about. We wanted to create a home that is modern as well as paying homage to the history of the town. I think we have achieved a nice balance with what we have created, it is finished in a modern way, but we have included a few Victorian aspects to honour Greytown’s past”.

The doors to the show home open on 12 December at 10am. Opening hours will be 10am to 4pm Wednesday through Sunday.

Hi and welcome to the 47th edition of Werewolf, published on the eve of Anzac Day. Its become a cliché to describe Gallipolli as the crucible of this country’s identity, yet hold on... Isn’t our national identity supposed to be bi-cultural... and wouldn’t that suggest that the New Zealand Wars of the 19th century is a more important crucible of national identity than those fought on foreign soil?

Yet as Alison McCulloch eloquently reveals in this month’s cover story, New Zealand devotes a mere fraction of its attention span and funding resources to commemorating the New Zealand Wars compared to what it devotes to the two world wars, Vietnam and Afghanistan... More>>
