The 10 brand new two-bedroom homes are being sold off the plans at the Lakeside development in Te Kauwhata. As the name Lakeside suggests, a key feature of this development is the access to open space and recreational activities on or near the water.

Lakeside is a master-planned community nestled on the banks of Lake Waikare, less than a kilometre from the Te Kauwhata town centre and its schools and other facilities. The development is approximately 54km from Hamilton and 58km from Manukau.

There will be 1600 homes in the Lakeside development, including 175 KiwiBuild homes, and the village centre will accommodate a café, restaurant, childcare centre, small office space, and a medical centre. The wider Lakeside development will include sports fields and playgrounds. You can find more information at

The first 10 architecturally-designed KiwiBuild homes to be balloted at Lakeside are two-bedroom modern standalone homes, all fully landscaped with off-street parking and a home appliance package. The homes are priced at $480,000 and will be sold off the plans. Initial earth works are already underway and construction of these 10 KiwiBuild homes will be completed by Christmas 2019.

As part of the development, over 5km of walking and cycling trails are being created, giving public access to the banks of Lake Waikare for the first time. A large recreational lake is also being created to the east of the development.

Lakeside will hold its first public Open Day this Sunday at 98 Scott Road, Te Kauwhata between midday and 2.30pm. Both Winton and KiwiBuild will have representatives onsite to help you with any queries.

The ballots will open on Monday 29th October and will remain open for a month.
