Builder:  Refined by the meticulous craftsmanship of Feutz & Goldsmith, renowned specialists in architecturally designed, upscale residences throughout Southland, NZ, this project epitomises bespoke excellence. Attentive to the client's exacting desires, every facet of this home reflects an unwavering commitment to perfection.

Exemplifying this dedication is the painstaking effort invested alongside skilled bricklayers to refine the hue of the mortar, a pivotal element within the construction.

From the sweeping facade to the intricacies of garden walls, Feutz & Goldsmith's signature finesse is evident in every detail. Each brick is carefully positioned, with meticulous attention paid to capping and the seamless transition beneath eaves, ensuring a harmonious blend of form and function throughout the property.
