Top 100: Four ‘exceptional’ Hawke’s Bay properties make the cut in national comp

A breathtaking sea-view renovation is among four Hawke’s Bay properties that made the cut for the top 100 builds in the country.

The final 100 homes, announced in Wellington on Tuesday, will now all vie for the 2023 Registered Master Builders House of the Year Competition.

Included in the Hawke’s Bay properties is a home in Central Hawke’s Bay by Integral Building Services featuring in the New Home $500,000 – $750,000 category, a Hastings home by Redmond Builders in the Altus Window Systems New Home $750,000 – $1 million class, a Design Builders (HB) Havelock North property in the GIB Show Home category and a Davcon home in Napier for the Renovation Over $1.5 million category.

Organisers said the competition celebrates the “very best” in residential buildings.

This year, the regional competition had about 300 entries across nine regions. Each home was viewed by a panel of experienced judges who assess the builds’ workmanship, design, style, and functionality.

Registered Master Builders chief executive, David Kelly, said the event recognises the very best houses, quality builders and craftspeople across New Zealand since 1991.

“These awards serve as an occasion to celebrate and acknowledge our builders’ ability to build exceptional homes for Kiwis.” Kelly said.

The Top 100 homes will now be re-judged to find out who will take out the top spots at the 2023 National Awards Gala in November.
