Project Details
Location: Lynley Park Drive, Omokoroa, Tauranga
Project Type: Residential House
Architectural Designer / Builder: Jennian Homes

Project Overview
Lynley Park is a highly desirable residential subdivision in Omokoroa, Tauranga and the location of Jennian Homes’ latest dream home. This superb property is the major prize in one of the six Heart Foundation Lotteries held each year. Situated just 15 minutes from Tauranga city, it is in a sought after location with great schools, local shops and restaurants, beaches, a wharf and ferry and features a stunning selection of high quality materials.With all these in mind, this house has all the makings of being a perfect home.

The Solution
This beautifully designed pavilion style home is clad with James Hardie new Linea® Oblique Weatherboard and EasyLap™ Panel, giving it the wow factor typical of a Jennian dream home.

The James Hardie cladding products were donated to the Heart Foundation in support of the charity’s work to improve the heart health of New Zealanders, and as part of an ongoing relationship which sees the company donate one house of free products per year.

Matt Mackay, Director of Jennian Homes in Tauranga, says these James Hardie products were well suited to this particular style of home.

“The home is comprised of two distinct wings with a connecting entranceway. Linea Oblique was installed vertically on one wing and horizontally on the other, and EasyLap Panel was used on the front and back of the entranceway to provide a beautiful, balanced look.

“Painted in a dark colour, the EasyLap Panel provides a visual break between the vertical and horizontal weatherboards, and a nice clean look to the entranceway. Also, with Linea Oblique you can use a mix of wide and narrow boards, which adds another level of interest to the home,” Mackay explains.

The products provide flexibility for a fresh, modern design. Resistant to fire, moisture damage and rot, they are made to withstand New Zealand’s harsh coastal climate and will not warp in the sun.

“The home is both beautiful and durable, and balances modernity in this new subdivision with its 1950s weatherboard neighbours down the road. It definitely grabs your interest,” says Mackay.

Linea® Oblique  and EasyLap™ Panel are new products James Hardie has brought to the New Zealand market.
