eurobodalla home guide 11 BUILDING THE 12th November awards ceremony, held at Jupiters on the Gold Coast, saw the multi-award winning builder receive the award for Best National Display Home under $250,000 for the Merlot display home constructed at Freemans Ridge at Carnes Hill. The Merlot has been one of Masterton's flagship designs since its introduction and is ongoing proof that Masterton under- stands the changing needs and trends in the market place and responds to them by continually innovating and updating. With over 50 years experience in the industry Masterton has repeatedly been awarded for its imagination and expertise and this national award reflects the company's com- mitment to delivering homes that will endure. Jim Masterton, now in his 80s, is the tire- less leader of an organisation that he says thoroughly deserves the credit it achieves. "When I founded this company I believed in providing top quality, innovative housing for families at a price they can afford." Masterton has stuck to these basic princi- ples and, as a result, has grown and remained constantly one of the top builders in NSW." The four-bedroom, two storey Merlot breaks new ground for Masterton Homes, being one of the most exciting, stylish and sophisticated designs available in today's competitive marketplace. There are many subtle details that contribute to its overall appeal but it is the Merlot's ability to deliver on the big picture that sets it apart from other similar size home designs. For the first time the centrally located kitchen area features a walk in butlers pantry with additional wet area suitable for keeping unsightly mess out of the way when entertaining. The living areas are well defined with a formal lounge situated within view of the kitchen and a home theatre tucked away at the rear which, in a further clever innovation, uses tiered flooring to maximise the home theatre feel. Another first is the clever use of open wooden stair risers from the entrance hall to upper storey. Along with the stylish marine cable railing this creates light and space where a conventional staircase would be heavier and more intrusive. The natural feel of the wood is echoed through the entrance area creating warmth and appeal, drawing through to the main living and kitchen area At a huge 314sqm including the garage and alfresco areas the Merlot is an expan- sive home which firmly reaffirms Masterton as the leading home builder in NSW and will set new benchmarks in family living for many years to come. masterton scoops up yet more prestige awards NSW top project home-builder, Masterton Homes, has once again taken out prestigious honours, this time at a national level, at the Master Builders National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards in 2011.
