It’s been a long slow journey but with the help of our many sponsors and volunteers, we are very satisfied that we are taking a quality home to the market, the House of Dreams.
But first a little history…Around 10 months ago Ray White Beach Haven purchased a 1940’s house at 43 Rangatira Rd in Beach Haven, with a plan to renovate and re-sell to raise money for the Beach Haven Plunket as they are in dire need for better facilities. We had been looking for a while and as soon as we saw it we knew it was the right one. It was original in many respects and there were certain aspects of the property that had not been taken advantage of which we felt could be accentuated, and a building inspection revealed that this old girl had great bones and would respond well to a makeover.
Now rest assured this is no quick and cheap do up; we have achieved a high quality renovation that is evident when you visit the property. The weatherboards were stripped and the whole exterior bar the roof completely repainted. The interior stripped to the framing, fully re-wired, re-plumbed and insulated in all the exterior walls, ceilings and under the floor – toasty warm!
New GIB board and classy looking GIB coving applied to the 9 foot high walls, all new “government” architraves and skirting’s to match the era, and the windows joinery stripped and painted in the all classic gloss white. New carpet in the bedrooms and family room, and the stunning original Rimu floors exposed in the lounge, kitchen, entrance and dining area. A beautiful white kitchen with stone bench top really ads class, as do the TWO new bathrooms with tiled floors. Not to mention this lovely old lady sits on a site of more than 900m2 with a great entertaining area and the essential double garage.
Our Sponsors have been amazing and the list is long and varied. First up was the BNZ (already one of Plunket’s principal sponsors) with an interest free loan, Grove Mitre 10 Mega in Glenfield stepped up supplying majority of the building materials, GIB, Wattle Paints, Mammoth Insulation, Kitchen Studios, Orange Scaffolding, Lamp Specialists, Contract Landscapes Ltd, Flooring Direct, Heritage Tiles, Foreno Tapware, Tree Fellas, Parmco and Betta Electrical, PS Electrical, Hi-Qual Doors and Stairs, Tradextra, Schnauer & Co, Orion Signs, Ambient Air, McDermond Plumbing, Mokoia Developments, Ideal Electrical, JTMedia, Marley, BCW Design, Bescene Interiors and Refresh Home Staging; and of course the many volunteers and the team here at Ray White Beach Haven putting in hours of their time over the past 10 months.
