David Reid Homes Kapiti won multiple awards at the Registered Master Builders House of the Year Wellington and Wairarapa regional competition.

The competition recognises the very best homes, builders and craftspeople across New Zealand, and this year there were almost 300 entries across nine regions.

David Reid Homes Kāpiti had one house in particular that won several awards. A house they had built in Waikanae Beach won them three awards: the Wellington and Wairarapa Supreme House of the Year award for a house under $1 million; the Altus Window Systems New Home award in the $750,000 — $1 million category; and a gold award.

In the judges’ comments, they said it was a well-designed home which “effortlessly blends the captivating environment of Waikanae Beach, showcasing an exceptional design that perfectly complements its surroundings”.

“Its casual elegance creates an inviting haven for the owners, offering a lovely retreat to enjoy beach life.” They said the careful attention to detail showcased throughout the property is admirable. “Notably, the custom kitchen, with its wonderful timber tops and well-integrated pantry, exemplifies the refined quality that this prestigious award acknowledges.

“The combination of thoughtful design elements and exceptional craftsmanship makes this home a true standout in the competition.” The judges said the light-blue weatherboard home with white trim adds a cheerful touch to the beach-side street at Waikanae Beach.
