Set in Springlands newest exclusive residential subdivision, Rose Manor exudes tranquil and desirable living, so it was a no-brainer that Endeavour Homes Marlborough chose this as the site to showcase the very best of what the boutique design and build company can offer.

Priding itself on creating individually designed homes perfectly suited to its client's needs, the talented team set to work collaborating on their own completely bespoke build, highlighting and showcasing their incredible talents.

Managing director of Endeavour Homes Marlborough, Nadine Norton takes great pride in her work saying, “Continuously creating beautiful spaces that bring family and friends together gives me immense satisfaction. I am surrounded by an incredibly creative group of like-minded people so coming to work is a pleasure rather than a chore.” When pushed to choose a special feature of the company’s new show home, Nadine says everyone has their personal favourites. “The build was a collaboration of all our talents. I can’t decide on one favourite feature or space as it all works so cohesively together. But one of the standout design elements for me are the surface sliding feature doors in the living area. They are always a talking point whenever we have visitors to the show home.”


For home designer, Simon Reeve, it is a toss-up between the striking combination of the high rooflines, feature concrete bricks and Abodo slats in the exterior entrance and the cosy window seat. “Both have design elements that are appealing to the eye but also very functional and inviting.” Chris Barrowman, sales and client liaison, says, “It has to be the sultry curves of the kitchen. Many hours of craftsmanship went into creating the curved doors in our island bench and it brings a sense of satisfaction to me every time I see them. The feedback has been phenomenal.” And for construction manager, Scott Morgan it is the contrast of cladding systems adding an interesting depth and texture to the home. “The raking ceilings in the living areas create a feeling of light and space. We are very fortunate to work from such inspirational surroundings.”


As the team prioritised clients' builds over their personal project, the show home was completed over ten months, from start to landscaped finish. “One memorable highlight was when we wrapped the home in Gib ‘Weatherline’ prior to the exterior claddings going on,” says Nadine. “The home was a bright shade of purple for several months which created a lot of talk on the building sites.”


“We are all very proud of our show home. It showcases what we can do for our clients. When building with Endeavour Homes, you employ a collective of experienced professionals who will be as passionate about your build as you are,” adds Nadine. “Our in-house team consists of a draftsperson, licensed builder and interior joinery designer who is also a qualified interior designer. Even our new administrator has an extensive interior design and sales background. We are a ‘design and build’ one-stop shop with consistent feedback indicating this is extremely helpful and makes the build process stress free. Our team also prides itself on our approachability and communication skills.”


Building in the region since 2001, Endeavour Homes Marlborough are 100% locally owned and operated. “We support local businesses and contractors and treat each and every build as if it was our own home right up until we are privileged to hand it over to our very excited clients. We are very competitive in the marketplace and build homes for every stage in a person's life - from first homes through to forever homes.”


At Endeavour Homes, they truly believe in the sentiment of ‘love where you live’. “Our whole purpose and drive as a team is to achieve a stunning result for each client that we can be proud of and a beautiful home that they love coming home to each day.”
