Sitting quietly on a generous section in suburban Christchurch, this two-storey entertainer’s dream is an intelligent and creative example of ultra-contemporary design.


This exceptional home from Metzger Builders won the Supreme New Build of the Year grand award, as well as the New Home over $2 Million and the Plumbing World Bathroom Excellence awards at the Registered Master Builders’ 2018 Home of the Year awards.

Superb open-plan living and indoor-outdoor flow means the six-bedroom (all with ensuites) home is awash with natural light.


Included in the design is a spacious library, separate office, wine cellar and movie theatre, while extensive decking and patios provide the perfect platform for entertaining.

State of the art heating and cooling technology ensures year-round temperate living, while three gas fires deliver touches of ambiance, all enhanced by a stunning floating stone staircase.

Judges commented that “The clever and balanced design of this home had a considered approach in every respect.
“The large home sits boldly on its rural site, but peacefully in its landscaped environment. The impeccable crafting and attention to detail demonstrated by the builders and subcontractors is truly exceptional.

“The collaboration between client, architect and builder has made this a home that perfectly suits the needs of the growing family. It is a well deserving winner of this award.”
