A Landmark to love, perfectly crafted for the site on which it sits. House & Land Packages are more than just a ‘package deal’; it’s a convenient solution to getting both a home and location that work for how you like to live your life.
When developing House & Land Packages, it’s about matching a new build to a section, ensuring perfect harmony between the two as you would any bespoke build – but with a lot of the hassle of section sourcing taken out.
This is what attracted Auckland-based couple Dave and Lynn Bright to a house and land package when it came to building their future retirement home.
Searching for a location that they wanted to spend their golden years in, Dave had his heart set on Taupo. He had been looking for a few years at houses for sale when he discovered a House & Land Package available in a suburb both he and his wife Lynn liked.
Upon getting in contact with Landmark’s Angeleine McGahey, they knew they had come to the right place.
“We were very impressed by the knowledge she had of what building a new house entailed,” says Lynn.
“As we did not live in Taupo, we relied heavily upon Angeleine. She was in constant contact with us and nothing was ever too much trouble. She also had a lot of suggestions that helped us to make final decisions for our house as well.”
The couple built in December 2018 and it was completed within a few days of the planned finish date.
“We were very pleased with the whole building process and everything ran like clockwork. We are very grateful to everyone who worked on the house as it has been beautifully finished.”
Six months on, the couple have furnished their Taupo home to be used as their holiday retreat until a time when they retire full time. And while Landmark has completed the build, they remain in close contact following completion.
“They carried out an inspection after the house has been lived in for a month and will again in a year’s time,” says Lynn.
“Landmark have made us a folder with the Master Builders’ Guarantee and details of all the contractors who worked on the house, adding that we can phone the contractors directly if we find any problems at all with any of the work they have done.
“Everything was finished to a very high standard and communication throughout the process was excellent. Landmark proved to be a very professional team and we would highly recommend them to anyone building a house.”
