Sanderson Group's latest development, the Tamahere Country Club, features architecturally designed villas and apartments with an onsite clubhouse, health spa, and bowling green. It is located close to a shopping precinct with a grocer, medical centre, pharmacy, and hair and beauty salon.
The village itself is still considered rural, though it is just 10 minutes from Hamilton proper and Waikato hospital.
“We build long term homes,” said Nathan Sanderson, development manager. From the quality of materials to the architectural design, each element is carefully considered.
“For example, we use 140mm studs, instead of the standard 90mm studs, R4 insulation in the walls and R5 in the ceiling. This keeps houses warm in the winter and cooler in the summer.”
Sanderson's also use low-emissivity glass, which minimises the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light that comes through the glass without minimising the amount of light that enters the space.
Features include quality materials, such as two-pot lacquer in the kitchen, stone benchtops, timber flooring and underfloor heating in the bathroom.
“We build something that is going to last,” said Sanderson. Smart-home systems are also offered as an optional extra.
With an architectural team and 35 different designs, each home can be customised to the resident’s requirements through an in-depth consulting process.
“Everything is customisable,” Sanderson said. “You can even choose where you want the trees to go if you want.”
Sanderson hopes Tamahere will be complete by the end of next year, as there are multiple projects within the works.
A new dementia care and rest home for the Waikato, which will feature a new model for care facility living, are on track for consent this year and breaking ground mid next year. Matamata Country Club and Te Awamutu Country Club are also pending approval.
