The Milestone Homes Matamata team (below). Milestone Homes Matamata BUILDING Matamata’s only local group home builder, Milestone Homes Matamata, has positioned itself in a niche market offering a higher specification, as demonstrated in its smart and contemporary new show home at Peakedale Estate. “We live local, we build local, and we use local subtrades and suppliers wherever possible,” says Milestone Homes Matamata director and construction manager Craig Davison. “Its important to us that we support local businesses so that Matamata will prosper and thrive. We and the businesses we support are then able to sponsor community sport, support facilities like our new community events centre, and employ local kids in our businesses.” Milestone Homes Matamata’s new show home is the quintessential example of the higher specification product clients can expect in a home from the Lifestyle range of plans. “We pitch our product with a higher specification level to cater to a specific market,” Craig says. “People who have looked at the other show homes say they can see the difference in quality and specification level in our show home.” This home features four spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, and two living areas. Craig says three areas of a home are often key to a successful sale, these being the kitchen, bathroom, and sometimes the laundry. Milestone Homes Matamata has focused on raising the standard in these areas and the new show home displays them beautifully. The executive kitchen with walk in pantry displays Fisher & Paykel appliances as well as fittings and fixtures from trusted quality brands, cabinetry, and bench-tops, all of which come standard with a Milestone Home from the Lifestyle range. “We’ve given the whole kitchen a facelift, putting some more negative edge details on the kitchen island and making it more funky. In the bathrooms we have used Dumawall panels, as we use in all of our homes. The beauty of this product is it looks like tiles but it doesn’t have any grout, and the clients love it.” In the laundry, instead of a supertub, the show home boosts a smart benchtop and built in cabinetry where the washing machine and dryer are at are elevated off the floor for easier access. As standard, Milestone Homes Matamata uses grooved internal doors in the Lifestyle homes for extra style and charm. Boundary fencing, mowing strips and lawns, and fully insulated garage doors are again standard features. Milestone Homes recently launched its new Country range of homes, which are plans especially developed for those seeking space and a touch of luxury. Generously sized and designed to connect with the outdoors, the new Country range plans are premium: spacious, comfortable, and modern with proportions perfectly suited to a rural setting, lifestyle block, or larger section. “The Country range is something we thought would work well in our area,” Craig says. “We are in the middle of the Golden Triangle between Auckland, Hamilton, and Tauranga, with families who want a bigger home with expansive living areas and an indoor/outdoor connection. These plans can be altered to suit whatever they want.” Milestone Homes’ proven plan range takes the complexity out of building a home, and also offers confidence around the price of a new home when financing. For the buyer, there are no hidden surprises along the way.
