2 12 [Edition datE] Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District Dream it, build it Occasionally when you step into a show home, you instantly recognise it is quite unique. Such is the experience at R & B Builders’ Faringdon show home. R & B Builders’ directors Ryan Neal and Brett Armstrong are Licensed Building Practitioners, have each spent many years in the building industry and are very proud to bring a range of architecturally designed houses to the market. Their fresh approach to design and build and attention to detail, is second to none. In addition to being experienced builders, Ryan and Brett are creative types who like to embody their business motto, “Dream It, Build It” with an innovative use of materials and design features. The show home at 91 Ledbury Drive, Faringdon is a fantastic example of this and the quality workmanship R & B clients can expect. The four bedroom, two storey, 240sqm house exemplifies a practical use of space while remaining open and welcoming. Cathedral ceilings throughout both floors, and especially in the large lounge, enhance the already spacious feel. A central staircase with glass balustrade leads to a mezzanine living space between two of the bedrooms and a powder room. It is a perfect area for children or teenagers. Skylights bring in additional light. A generously sized master bedroom on the ground floor, features an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe with sliding doors to the deck outside. There is plenty of storage space and the centralised kitchen features high-end appliances and fittings with a large walk-in scullery which also incorporates the laundry. It is a beautiful home, made more so by Interior Consultant Carol Hartnell, Ryan and Brett’s motherin-law. Carol is the face of the R & B show home and is based there from 12pm to 3pm, Wednesday to Saturday for viewings; on Sundays Brett or Ryan will be there. Carol is very friendly and approachable and works closely with Brett and Ryan. They enjoy client interactions and are big on communication and keeping clients informed throughout the building process. They can all provide advice and ideas, or take your ideas and make them a reality. They work with a highly motivated and experienced team of builders, architects and suppliers to bring quality architecturally designed homes to buyers.
