A beachfront home that made a "dream a reality" for its owners has won the prestigious title of Master Builder's Supreme House of the Year.
The beachfront home on Auckland's North Shore "epitomised supreme sophistication and was an exceptionally crafted project", said judges at a gala dinner last night.
The dinner at the Langham Hotel was attended by 500 guests from the building and construction industry.
The builders behind the Campbells Bay home, Richard Davidson Builders Limited, took out four national awards, including the coveted Supreme House of the Year, National category win for the New Home over $2 million, the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence Award and the Craftsmanship Award.
Judges said the Auckland company's work was exceptional.
"The home's adaptation of an American classic, which was built on a difficult and complex site, is bound to be a trend setter," they said.
The 700sq m black and white Cape Cod-style home had five bedrooms, four bathrooms and three living areas. Judges said it combined the architect's vision and detailing with "outstanding skills and craftsmanship to create a home full of delight, discovery and sophistication." It was in the national category for new builds over $2m.
Hamilton's John S Macdonald Builders Ltd was awarded the Supreme Renovation of the Year for their work on a Tamahere house, along with the National category win for the Renovation Award over $500,000.
The six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in Hamilton was described by judges as "simply stunning" and "a credit to the owner and builder".
"With no loss to the historical character, this magnificent family residence is a combination of renovation and restoration.
The home has been reconfigured and services have been upgraded to incorporate 21st-century technology," they said.
Maddren Homes won the Bunnings New Home up to $300,000 category for a house in Beach Haven. Judges were impressed by the smart design, simple materials and feeling of light and space.
They described it as an ideal family starter home or for someone looking to downsize. "It is well constructed, showing what can be achieved on a tight budget."
Registered Master Builders chief executive David Kelly said the House of the Year awards were an opportunity to celebrate the quality homes built in New Zealand by quality builders. He cited the recent earthquake as an important reminder of the importance of safe, well-built homes.
"We need quality buildings right across New Zealand."
