Strong and Sophisticated

Golder Residential

One could be fooled into thinking this expansive Waitoki home is a holiday resort with all of the palm trees surrounding this large 550 sqm paradise. 

Built by Golder Residential, where once this was a rundown, lumpy paddock used by cattle, has now been turned into an expansive family home. 

The 10ha was transformed using 10,000 cubic metres of clay to provide a stable building platform, and architect Joseph Long made the family’s vision come to life.


A virtual assistant opens all of the blinds, curtains, lights and heating, and a cocktail bar services the formal lounge for adult entertaining.

Oversized glass pendants from Czech Republic hang above the kitchen, and internal bridges separate all of the bedrooms from the living spaces.

Clad in vertical timber with blade walls in marbled plaster, the strong geometry is softened by touches of the tropics.

An avenue of palm trees greets you at the front gate, along with bridges, ponds and natural rock walls.
