This brand new quality apartment and terrace house project completed under Homestar offers the best in urban living for homeowners. Congratulations to all those involved.

First 9 Homestar house completed: Why is it so much better?

How much of a premium would you pay for a house that produced virtually no power bills, and was always warm, dry and comfortable?

New Zealand's first 9 Homestar Built house has just been completed in Christchurch, at a cost of $2700 per square metre. It's a 222 square-metre, four-bedroom house – with an additional 30 square-metre covered outdoor room – that ticks all the boxes for sustainability and energy efficiency. That's $680,400 for the build alone, including the composite deck.

Homestar passes market test

The first property carrying a Homestar rating was recently put on the property market in the lower South Island this Spring.

Riccarton, Christchurch

Those who live at Matipo on the Green will benefit from warmer, healthier and more comfortable homes. And as accommodation costs will include rent and power they’ll be better positioned to budget for fixed costs within a shared living environment.
