Opening the Doors to Hobsonville's New Show home

David Reid Homes is excited to announce the recent opening of a brand new show home in Hobsonville. The impressive contemporary styled home is the newest addition to the impressive collection of builds by our North Shore & West franchise in Auckland. Led by the experienced Martin Wilshire since 2003, himself and his team cover the area from the Harbour Bridge to Orewa.

Located in the sought after suburb of Hobsonville, this impressive 2-storey build is the perfect family home. Formerly the location of the Royal Air Force Base, Hobsonville Peninsula is a short 20 minutes drive from Central Auckland, providing a comfortable balance of tranquil suburbia with the benefits of city living.

Ever humble, Martin’s honest approach and commitment to achieving excellence precedes him, with one customer recently commenting, “you undersold your expertise, and over delivered on our expectations”.
His dedication to building exceptional quality homes naturally extends into his choice of team, surrounding himself with staff well experienced in architectural design, planning and construction to ensure the best results every time.

This generously proportioned home boasts 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and 2 living areas. The layout of the home balances functionality with design, with 3 of the 4 bedrooms located on the 2nd floor, creating space between private quarters and living areas. The clever design places the 4th bedroom on the lower floor with a spacious ensuite giving privacy to guests while keeping family space for children upstairs.

Open plan dining on the ground floor includes a designer kitchen with scullery which flows through to the formal lounge where large double-glazed stacking slider doors open onto sweeping, north facing decks. Multiple skylights complete the light-filled living area, providing year-round sunshine to enjoy.

The designer kitchen was custom built for the home, featuring a waterfall ended kitchen island and engineered stone bench tops. Mosaic tiles in neutral grey tones add flair to the scullery and compliment the wooden tones of the shelving and hardwood flooring flawlessly. Complete with high end appliances and finishing touches such as soft-close drawers and cupboards, this kitchen is an impressive collaboration of functionality and beauty.

Tiling from floor to ceiling in all bathrooms and ensuites tie the home together with each featuring custom designed showers and joinery. In the master bedroom ensuite you will find his and hers sinks with split individual drawers beneath, again showing the great attention to detail and well thought out design that Martin and his team are known for. The exterior of the home shows off contrasting horizontal and vertical weatherboards, and sleek long-line roofing completes this stunning home.

When asked which part of the build process was the most memorable, Martin says it was "all in the lead up the end, when the intricate details, finished products were installed and the team could see the choices we had made come to fruition."

As for his favourite feature of the two-storey family home, he quipped "the coolest feature would be the water cooled - excuse the pun - and heated ceilings that provide climate control throughout the entire home."
