This Heritage Renovation completed in 2020 won the National Master Builders House of the Year Awards for its category. It also won the Lifestyle Award for interiors.
The home sits in long established grounds on the edge of the Tauranga Harbour and was in need of a makeover. The original home had little indoor outdoor flow. Calley Homes were tasked with bringing this heritage home into the 2020s in a sympathetic way.
The original home was built over 100 years ago. As previous clients of Calley Homes the couple wanted a renovation that was sympathetic to the heritage of the home, and to provide them with a modern and functional space.
The extension included adding a social living and entertaining space with indoor and outdoor connection. The home owners love to spend time with family and friends and wanted to be able to entertain and enjoy the space all year round.
The home’s age dictated details of the build. From the
exterior joinery where the new window suite needed to be in keeping with the original windows through, to the interiors with a seamless transition from the original home to the new extension.
The transformation features a modern, open plan kitchen, scullery, dining and casual seating area with access to two outdoor areas giving the client the ultimate in indoor/ outdoor flow. One, a deck which leads off the dining space, provides seamless uninterrupted views out over the harbour. The other a sheltered outdoor area which is set into the hillside and leads off the kitchen gives access to the garden and surrounds.
The parquet timber flooring and a kitchen which is heritage in style and colour but has all the modern functionality with scullery and central island. The kitchen centres the new space, and feature lighting brings a sense of drama and wow.
