An ode to traditional English country design, this five bedroom home is the family’s second building project with Haven. Clad with 70mm thick Hinuera stone block beneath Metro Shake roofing tiles, every inch of this house is finished with majesty and flows with charm. The steep-pitched roofline is broken up with symmetrical extra height chimneys which complement the ground-level columns and add even more originality to the home’s character. A central portico extends out over the terrace, which overlooks and leads to the in-ground heated pool - the perfect entertaining area for family and friends alike.

After having experienced a hands on approach from Gary Millington and his team with the successful construction of our beach front property at Matarangi, we decided to engage a second time with Haven to build a new country residence on our 75 acre block in Patumahoe – just out of Karaka, South Auckland. For a second time, we were pleased with the results!

We have found Gary and his team to be very proactive in their approach and constructive in their suggestions for design improvements. We would be happy to recommend Haven to those wishing to embark on the building process.
