Mairangi Bay Builders, Homes built For You

If you are looking to build your dream home in the East Coast Bays area, then it is important that you partner with a high-end Mairangi Bay house builder. Auckland builders specialise in custom homes and luxury living spaces.

A proven high-end house builder in the Mairangi Bay area, will not only have experience in house construction, they will also have relationships with other key people like architects, as well as their own team of high-calibre skilled tradespeople.

Below we will look at some of the key traits of a high-end house and what to look for in a builder of luxury homes.

A High-End Home Is More Than Just Bricks And Mortar

It is difficult to say what a “high-end home“ is.

For some, it means a stylish, luxury home like you’d see in a glossy-magazine. For others, it is a house with every amenity imaginable.

However, there are five characteristics which are common to most high-end homes. Let’s take a look at those.


The Ultimate High-End Home: Five Traits That Make Them Stand Out

1) Location

It is no surprise that the location of a home will play an important role in determining its perception and therefore, its value. The old adage “location, location, location” has stood true for decades. While you might have a big, well-appointed house in a suburb, if that area has lower quality, smaller homes, no amount of luxury fit-outs is going to make it a high-end home.  The right suburb, or even just the best street, is a huge issue when it comes to recognising a high-end home.


2) The Look And Design

If you have been able to find a section in the most desirable street in Mairangi Bay, that doesn’t mean that a new house will be a high-end home. There are other key attributes, first of which is the design of the house.

A luxury, high-end house will not be built off a standard plan. It will be architecturally designed to meet particular, bespoke requirements.

Those standard plans are much cheaper than having a designer or architect design your home. The houses are also cheaper to build.

But to be a truly high-end house, it must be a unique design to meet specific wants and needs to suit your personal lifestyle.


3) The Features

What separates high-end houses from regular homes are features and amenities.

A high-end house will not only have more rooms, but they will be much larger.  Think of a huge kitchen with the latest appliances and a massive butler’s pantry.


Others can be more personal preferences like:

  • a temperature-controlled wine cellar
  • a media room in which you could escape after dinner and watch your favourite movie while lounging on plush leather recliners
  • a games room with a ping pong table for hours of fun when the kids friends come over
  • spa baths that allow parents access to some much-needed relaxation time without having to leave their children at home unattended
  • and more.


When you have a home designed to meet your own preferences, you can include all those luxury fixtures, fittings and rooms you always dreamed about.


4) Its Size

High-end homes are by definition, not the ordinary 3-bedroom house.  A typical house is about 130m2, but a high-end home is likely to be at least double that size.

The rooms will be bigger in area and often in number. A luxury home will have five, six or even more bedrooms plus three or four bathrooms.

Sometimes, you might see a smaller, top-quality home but generally they are bigger buildings.


5) The Material Used In The House

As we noted above, simply having a house on the best street in the neighbourhood doesn’t mean it will be a high-end house in Mairangi Bay. The wow-factor largely comes from the design and the fit-out.

You could have a laminate kitchen counter-top. However, that doesn’t compare to say a solid wooden or stone bench-top.

Similarly, the kitchen appliances need to be the top-grade brands like Bosch or Miele for example, rather than the more common models like Fisher & Paykel or LG.

For doors, the handles are stylish and modern with a solid-feel. You can get a usable door handle for $50 but a top-quality, high-end door handle will cost $200 or even more.

And so it goes throughout the home.  Top-class fixtures and fittings.

You can see and feel the difference between run-of-the mill material found at chain hardware stores and the absolute best in all the fixtures and fittings.


Why Do You Need A Good High-End House Builder?

A high-end home is one that has been built with the utmost attention to detail. If you have gone to the expense of finding expensive land in Mairangi Bay, hiring an architect and sourcing the top-of-the-range fixtures and fittings, you definitely want to make sure that it is all put together to the highest quality.

However, different house building companies offer various levels of finish. Not all house builders in Mairangi Bay are high-end building companies. That means it’s important that you do your research before deciding on a contractor.
