A family Escape in Waihi Beach

With a Hamptons vibe this Waihi Beach new build is a home away from home for a busy family of six to escape city life.  Designed by Thorne Group Architecture and built by Calley Homes the house is spacious and has the character and charm of a coastal getaway with a sophisticated edge.

The homes design ethos revolves around a seamless indoor/outdoor connection, creating multiple spaces and zones across the two levels for the family to relish throughout the year. This intentional design extends the internal living spaces, making it the perfect backdrop for those long, sun-soaked summer holidays.

Built over two levels the upper floor hosts a generously sized open-plan living space, kitchen and scullery, a powder room, a study, and a master bedroom suite. Descend to the lower level, where four bedrooms, a main family bathroom and a versatile second lounge  provide ample space.

Classic character detailing is harmoniously fused with a sophisticated touch. Raked ceilings adorned with skylights flood the top floor with natural light, creating an airy ambiance in the open-plan living area. The interior palette features cool whites, coastal hues, and feature tongue and groove wall paneling, complemented by natural timber flooring for that quintessential coastal vibe.

Throughout the kitchen, living spaces and thoroughfares is a European Oak timber floor with an environmentally friendly, grain enriching, oil surface finish in colour Half Graphic from Creative Floorings. This timber custom finished in NZ uses European hard-wax oils and a light wire brushing process that helps conceal minor scratch marks when your floor is in use. Custom made ordering also allows you to pick the colour, grade and board size.

The same timber continues for complete seamless flow on the stairs with the Gerrand  timber specialist hand crafting bespoke nosings, tred and risers.

Each bedroom in this home has it’s own individual look and feel, featuring character wall panels in various designs painted in darker hues. Wool carpets underfoot enhance the sense of rest and relaxation in this coastal getaway home. The carpet chosen for the project is made by Feltex Carpets in New Zealand - Amesbury in colour Damascus.
