Beachlands Home Creatively Mixes Colour and Texture

This high-end Beachlands home creatively mixes colour and texture to create a striking landmark. Built by Bravo Ltd Builders, the home opens up to expansive sea views, inviting outdoor living areas and a pool.

Due to the coastal environment, low maintenance was a key consideration when it came to choosing materials for the exterior of the house. Products needed to not only look fantastic, but also be able to withstand the corrosive conditions.

As a result, the owners chose to clad the house in a mix of Hyde schist stone from the South Island and uPVC Palliside weatherboards in a Traditional profile. Palliside never needs painting and is designed to withstand New Zealand's demanding coastal conditions. uPVC gutters and downpipes were also specified for the project, to minimise maintenance.

Bravo director Andy Parker says the home is all about lifestyle — the large, open-plan family living space can be separated from the formal lounge by a glass cavity slider. Both areas open up to decks with overhead aluminium louvres providing shade. On the upper level, the master suite is also designed to maximise the view.

Yusuf Yaseen of DynexBuild, the manufacturer of Palliside, says the home is notable for the especially high standard of finish. "Bravo's painstaking attention to detail has ensured this project raises the benchmark for a family home in every possible way."
