David Reid Homes Taranaki's New Show Home

Enjoy all the benefits of urban living including walking or cycling to town, in your dream home in Sycamore Estate, New Plymouth built by David Reid Homes Taranaki.

Sycamore Estate is a new subdivision in the heart of Lower Vogeltown, a short stroll from the Huatoki Walkway, shops and CBD. Escape to Pukekura Park, and enjoy an easy stroll or bike ride to great cafés, restaurants and bars in downtown New Plymouth.

House construction is well underway at the new subdivision, and with its striking visual aesthetic and innovative design, the David Reid Homes Taranaki show home shows what can be done with smart ideas, great craftsmanship and attention to detail.

David Reid Homes Taranaki sales consultant Darryl Taylor says the 600sqm sections are the perfect size for a 180-200sqm home, with generous outdoor living areas and double garage.

“At the moment we’re getting lots of interest from people who are interested in a more traditional floor plan, but with smarter layout,” Darryl says. 

“We’re not talking tiny houses here, more the 180-200sqm mark, which is ideally suited to professional couples and active retirees.”

The new show home demonstrates some of the unique features that can be achieved with David Reid Homes’ professional team of architects, designers and builders.

“Our brief was to make an average-size home look and feel superior with smart design, lots of natural light and clean and simple lines.”

Stepping inside the front door, visitors are instantly impressed with the twin skylights, concrete floor tiles and Resene Venetian plaster feature wall, Darryl says.

The simple yet striking interior is achieved through feature lighting and raking ceilings in both living spaces, while the seamless design of the Glen John’s kitchen is complemented with a stylish feature wall which hides a walk-in pantry.

The attention to detail continues outdoors. The dual timber decks are located to make the most of the sun and escape the wind and contrast nicely with the textures of the aggregate steppers, paths, rock walls and extensive plantings.

David Reid Homes has some very attractive house and land packages to make the process of building your own home simple and affordable. Or, if you want more input, work with our designers to add your personal style or our qualified team to make modifications to suit you.
