13 Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District Design & practicality apparent in new show home A must see is Artisan Homes’ new show home in Prebbleton. From the rustic wood/stone front fence and superior landscaping to the quality workmanship and features throughout, you will be inspired by what Artisan Homes has created. On entering this 246 square metre house, the wide tiled entryway that accesses the living area and hall to the four bedrooms, sets the scene for what follows. Throughout, sensibility and innovation go together to offer a truly comfortable and very liveable family home that would equally suit a couple. Modelled on Artisan’s Modena design, the show home illustrates how plans can be adapted to fit particular building sites, as well as individual needs, preferences and budget. “We wanted to demonstrate how a house design need not be restrictive and changes can be made to create an ideal home for each client,” explains Rob Jones, owner of Artisan Homes. There is open plan living with a lounge/media room adjacent. The galley kitchen is spacious and has top of the line fittings with a larger oven and convection cooktop, granite benchtop and convenient pantry. Moving back into the living space, there is a study nook and plenty of room for living and dining. Large sliders in the living and lounge areas access a timber deck. This has been constructed from top of the line, Purple Heart wide-board timber, providing a pleasant and sheltered spot to enjoy breakfast or relax with a coffee or wine. The master bedroom is roomy and private, with a well thought out walkin robe that has a full length mirror while the luxurious ensuite comes complete with wet-room shower. Large sliders lead from this room to a second hardwood deck overlooking the back garden. The main bathroom emits a feeling of opulence with a free-standing bath, wide vanity and tiled shower and the toilet has its own washbasin, offering convenience for guests and those living in the home. It is clearly evident that considerable thought has gone into this show home. There are the finer details like sensor lights that automatically turn on when one enters a ‘little room’ and superior features such as the high quality joinery and fittings, extra heavy duty carpet, porcelain floor tiles, security system and schist stone featured entryway. The show home exemplifies innovation and energy efficiency, points that Rob says were important when designing the home. They have chosen thermally broken joinery and low-E argon gas filled glass windows, a two cassette heat pump system, and large double garage with fully insulated walls and door so is ideal for a workbench or gym equipment. Whether looking to build or just wanting ideas it is worth a visit to Artisan Homes’ new show home at 72 Blakes Road in Prebbleton. The show home is open for viewing on weekends, 12noon-4pm.
