  • Residential new build

A stunning home perched on a block with commanding views overlooking Lake Karapiro, Maungatautari and north up the Waikato River.

This home is unique. The impact greets you at the door.  Designed and crafted by CJW Build a wave ceiling crests the 5 metre high, 40 metre long “spine” of the home, transporting you toward the river and the magnificent view that awaits. There is no distraction, cleverly created by the concealed access to the living spaces that extend from this central core.

“Amazing team to work with takes your building experience to another level! I have never seen such a professional group of skilled trades people who are so passionate about their ability to make your home so fantastic! Pleasant, accommodating, helpful and precise nothing is out of place and so much care is taken. I really can’t see why you would want anyone else to build your home!!”

The large sliding doors on both side of the main living area open to create a canopy feel. This central space integrates the kitchen, dining and family space into the views to the west, and the  resort-like outdoor spaces. When opened the two areas become one, perfect for entertaining friends, barbecue’s, swimming and simply enjoying the view. The sunsets from the eastern deck are breathtaking. The master bedroom wing is intelligently positioned, but not seen, beyond this wing, offering seclusion but again maximising the views of the lake and beyond.

The interior materials exude luxury. They were purposefully selected to create a visual warmth and homeliness—textured tiles, Cedar battened ceilings. Mixed and organic coloured kitchen surfaces combined with high quality fittings throughout create an interior that continues the initial exterior wow factor.

Innovative, practical comfort is well considered in this home. Solar panels, upgraded insulation, underfloor heating and gas heating promote energy efficiency and keep running costs down. Switch glass in the bathrooms allow the outdoors and the views to be enjoyed but allow privacy if required. Home automation provides further efficiency and remote access practicality and convenience for the owner. The outdoor screens and gas fires extend the pleasure of the alfresco living by months.
