Looks like a lot of townships & properties here. TBH I've never thought of them as 'dated' although against a slick highrise city it may seem that way. I see them as quite American small town style, although I have no experience of that.

For instance , the township nearest to me looks like this.

The advert doesn't show all the assorted types of housing stock but it does show a variety of old and new which is very much New Zealand. New sub-divisions of course have a more contemporary look.

I agree BEV, when I first visited here 20 odd years ago I thought the wee towns/villages were very American, wild west look about them. The single storey buildings and wide covers. Now I look at UK villages and think how cramped they look!
There is so many different kinds of housing here you just can't generalise.
But then I'm a very happy and settled immigrant

Which is hardly surprising, both Australia and NZ enthusiastically built houses based on the Californian Bungalow
