Talented builders whose work features all around the Hibiscus Coast were recognised in the regional Master Builders Association’s House of the Year awards and are now in the running for a national title.
A feature of many of the homes was how much could be achieved in a small footprint, while some in the $1m plus categories were praised for having both luxury and character. Two local winners made the Top 100.
Due to the changing situation with Alert Levels, the Top 100 will not be re-judged to find national winners. Instead, the homes will be judged based on the regional scores. Currently the national awards are to be presented on November 27 in Auckland.
Many in Milldale
The majority of the local awards went to houses in Milldale. Ten houses in that developing area received awards – half of them show homes and most in the lower price category – $450,000-$600,000.
Silverdale shines Two Silverdale homes, both in the higher price bracket, received awards.
