Hamptons-style luxury in the Bay of Plenty

Experience the ultimate coastal charm and laid-back luxury at Landmark Homes' new Bay of Plenty Showhome. Expertly crafted and designed to bring a touch of laid-back Hamptons luxury to Palm Springs, Papamoa, Landmark's newly opened Bay of Plenty Showhome will have you dreaming of lazy days at the beach and balmy nights.

Street appeal

The custom Design and Build 260m² Landmark Showhome immediately stands out from the crowd on the coveted Forstera Way. Ensuring the stunning façade caught visitors' attention was a key design aim for Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty franchisee Carly Stewart.

"We wanted to step it up a notch for the street appeal," Carly says about the recent Design and Build of the Showhome. The Landmark team have done just that with the white Linea weatherboard complemented by the distinctive decorative truss set above the spacious oversized double garage, giving the external view of the home a contemporary and inviting Hamptons feel.


The entrance to the Showhome is nestled at the end of a beautifully structured front garden. Palms and flaxes housed in large beachy blue timber planters with coastal lights in brushed nickel follow you along a path onto the timber deck and the wide front entrance.

"The exterior lights are absolutely gorgeous," Carly says. "They fit so perfectly with the coastal design. We carried that theme throughout the house using brushed nickel on all the hardware and tapware. It just gives the Showhome a real timeless look." The street appeal iscompleted by olive trees framing the wide doorway, inviting you inside to explore the natural light-filled three-bedroom Showhome.


Once inside, visitors are greeted by the cosy, coastal charm of the open-plan home that backs onto the waterway beyond.

"You can stand on the front doorstep and look right through to the rear end of the home to the waterway. It's quite special," Carly explains.


The large open-plan kitchen, dining and living rooms are bathed in soft blues, gorgeous greys, and warm whites and are accentuated with natural fibre furnishings. An oak-stained engineered timber floor runs throughout the home, while suspended wooden pendant lights take pride of place above the dining room table.

"I went for neutral blue and grey hues throughout with lots of natural fibres, and natural linens," Carly says of the interior design inspiration. "The soft blue with scattered darker blues and greys really brings the Hampton and coastal vibe together." It is apparent right from the outset that every aspect of the Showhome has been keenly thought out to bring maximum comfort and cohesion.


The kitchen island, with sink inlay, also doubles as a bar and offers a hardy stone benchtop with brushed nickel tapware. A large, wrap-around scullery provides ample space for storage, appliances, and food preparation while keeping the kitchen clutter-free.

The earthy tones of the tile splashback, white Shaker Style kitchen cabinetry, and the contemporary rattan bar stools give the kitchen an easy, breezy feel.

Situated to the left of the kitchen is a separate living area, which can be closed off by a beautifully crafted white timber and glass door, offering a perfect media room or kids play space.


A particular design highlight for Carly is the large bay window adjacent to the kitchen area that begs you to curl up with a favourite book while viewing the groomed garden beyond.

"The bespoke window seat is incredible," Carly says. "It is boxed in beautiful tongue and groove panelling and has a linen upholstered squab. The wide, opening window frames the view of the sprawling garden, and brings the outside in. The warm light bathing the window seat is just magical."

Stacked, sliding doors unfurl from the open-plan living space, encouraging natural light to flood the home. The large deck, covered by a white timber, raked portico, flows seamlessly out onto the flat, manicured lawn edged by an easy-care garden.


At the front of the home, visitors will find two spacious bedrooms that continue with the calm, coastal theme.

The first bedroom is also furnished in natural, earthy tones with a unique tongue and groove feature half wall in pale blue. The look is completed with its timber-topped Dado rail.

The second bedroom is brought to life with darker, navy-blue walls, a stunning rattan headboard, and mustard accents. Both rooms have their own sliding doors that open onto a simple garden with concrete stepping stones and Mondo grasses.

The separate bathroom, perfect for guests or family, is complete with a shower, large bath, a modern vanity with on bench vessel Although minimalist, the striking herringbone blue tile elevates the bathroom beyond the norm.


The master bedroom is elegant, with gorgeous sheer drapes covering the generously sized sliding doors, offering views of the garden and waterway at the rear of the property. Another key feature of the master bedroom is the large walk-in wardrobe and the thoughtfully designed panelled feature wall behind the bed.

"The entire wall behind the master bed is in a gorgeous timber panelling painted in beautiful soft grey to match the Hamptons aesthetic of the room. The bedroom has been a massive hit, and it is a feature of the house I'm very proud of," Carly says.


But perhaps the real showstopper of the Showhome is the master ensuite.

"The ensuite is really special. It features a a beautifully tiled shower, a double vanity with gorgeous white, round vessels, and a large freestanding bath," Carly says. "There are two arch shaped LED mirrors above the vanity and the splashback has a unique white tile with the texture and pattern of a palm frond, which has been a big talking point."

In addition to the luxurious bathroom fixtures, floor-to-ceiling bi-folding doors open onto a deck surrounded by lush palms and greenery, giving the entire space a tranquil, resort-type feeling without you ever having to leave the house.

The Landmark Homes Bay of Plenty Showhome is now open and ready to inspire you with its timeless luxury and cosy coastal vibes.
