eHaus Egmont Village

Egmont Village, New Zealand
1281 Egmont Road Egmont Village Taranaki 4372 NZ

With a backdrop of rolling green hills, this four-bedroom, two-bathroom rural home is perfect for its young family to grow and enjoy. The 200sqm has been carefully planned to capture every space. High ceilings create an open plan living space with large windows creating light and a wonderful view. The family room also opens out to an amazing outdoor all-weather entertaining space. Designed by Ross Bennett alongside the eHaus energy modelling team to meet the Passive House standard, the home delivers comfort, health and energy efficiency for the family. uPVC joinery supplied by Energate was used throughout adding to the energy efficiency of the home. Outside, the white board-and-batten cladding with natural detailing and a gabled portico blend brilliantly to Mount Taranaki. Steve and Susie Hoffmans are the local eHaus builders and with this home won a Gold and  Category Winner at the Registered Master Builders 2021 House of the Year Competition. The home went on to be selected as one of the National Top 100 homes for 2021.
