Stonewood Homes Nelson Struck a Gold And Silver at the House of the Year Awards 2017

Stonewood Homes Nelson walked away with one gold and one silver award at the Registered Master Builder House of the Year awards 2017. “To win these awards is particularly satisfying as it demonstrates our brand’s dedication to quality. The Gold, Silver and Bronze awards indicate that they are 50, 65 & 80 per cent, respectively, above the industry standards. It gives our clients the confidence that Stonewood Homes Nelson is a cut above the rest!” said Brent Stewart, Managing Director of Stonewood Homes Nelson.

The Nelson Home Builders received two awards for Stonewood Homes:

• Gold award for Resene New Home up to $450,000 Category

• Silver award for GIB show home

This competition, considered by many to be the epitome of building excellence nationwide showcases only the best examples of quality craftsmanship and design vision.

Taking the Gold award in the Resene New Home category, this Tasman beauty exudes wonderful wow factor inside and out. Large, light-filled living and dining areas are well-connected to the contemporary open-plan kitchen. Inside flows out to a large deck and patios for alfresco entertaining.

A fireplace promises a warming spot for everyone to gather on winter evenings. The feature chimney with designer framed top enhances the home’s exterior appeal. The separate formal lounge is a cosy retreat for everyday enjoyment which could also be configured as a media room.

With three good-sized bedrooms, including master with ensuite, a walk-in robe, and a generous main bathroom, this is a true family sanctuary. Attic storage is a great bonus at 174sqm. Every inch of the design ensures good flow, comfort and value for money.

Winning the Silver award in the GIB show home category, direct from the latest design range of Stonewood Homes, this Richmond showstopper is the largest in the Linkwater family. Sitting pretty at 239sqm, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with two living areas is perfectly positioned for all-day sun. Architecturally designed, the home enjoys great street presence. Premium fixtures, and over-height doors and ceilings create a feeling of grandeur throughout. The entertainer’s kitchen features the latest laminate materials, LED lights in the feature bulkhead, stone benchtops and a striking kitchen island.

Judges assessed builds in three brand new categories which demonstrated a new trend in the residential construction industry. This included two new areas for entry for Volume and Group House builders, and one for multi-units, such as apartments. Multi-units made their debut to reflect an evolution in New Zealand’s housing landscape, these dwellings are expected to account for 40% of residential builds by the end of 2021.
