The new showhome features a spacious open plan living area perfect for entertaining.

Our new South Island team has hit the ground running – opening a new showhome in Christchurch, as Craig Skene takes over the helm of Platinum Homes Canterbury.

Born and bred in Canterbury, Craig’s spent his time on the tools working on renovations and new builds. He then took his skills overseas, spending a decade travelling to more than 50 countries, and working in Australia and the United Kingdom.

Now returning home to his roots, Craig is excited to start helping Canterbury families make their home dreams come true – with the support of his partner Amy and three children.

Craig and the Platinum Homes Canterbury team recently opened our new showhome at 18 Whitburn Avenue in Milns Park, a lively new subdivision in the centre of Halswell.

The architecturally designed home showcases lifestyle living at its best. Two spacious living rooms, an open-plan kitchen and dining area and a large covered deck make it the perfect home for entertaining.  

There’s space for the whole family with four bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an ensuite and walk-in-wardrobe.

For those with a passion for the culinary arts, the galley kitchen is equipped with a walk-in pantry and all the modern appliances you’ll need.

Come and visit us to see how we can customise design features such as built-in study nooks, oversized doors and custom laundries to create your dream home.

Our showhome in Milns Park is open Monday to Sunday from 12pm to 4pm, or give us a call on 021 863 853 to make an appointment.
