Residential Building Ready To Hit Top Gear In Kumeu 

“There’s tremendous growth potential around Kumeu and Huapai with diverse product ranges from high-density to stand alone residential and, of course, sought-after lifestyle living,” explains Golden Homes Sales Consultant Paul Houchen. 


“Golden Homes is currently celebrating its 30 year anniversary, it has come a long way from its beginnings in Rotorua - now it is a market leading national brand that caters for everyone; from affordable single-level dwellings to high-end architecturally designed builds. It makes sense for us to have a permanent base in the area and we’re excited to join the local community and help future residents to build their dream homes.” 


Golden Homes will oversee residential construction for the landmark Kumeu Central project. Resource consent for 177 two-storied terraced houses is currently being sought and Houchen expects to start breaking ground in mid-2021. 


“These homes will start from $610,000. There’s not a lot in Auckland that will be in that price range so we’re expecting strong demand. There’s a mix of two and three bedroom homes on offer and titles will be ready to purchase soon.” 


Kumeu Central is designed to develop and enhance the existing Kumeu village community. A mix of retail and commercial spaces suitable for shops, cafes, bars and healthcare services will also be built to compliment the residential homes. 


“At the moment there’s a little bit of retail and a few shops in Kumeu and Huapai. But the reality is there’s not a heck of a lot. Most people currently travel to Northwest shopping centre, so it will be fantastic to get some new cafes, bars and retail in Kumeu itself.” 


Houchen believes people will be surprised by what Golden Homes offers, as their expertise span the full breadth of the new build market.  


“We build everything from first homes to multi-million-dollar dream homes,” he says. “Every Golden Home is built with ZOG steel framing which is safer and stronger than timber. Plus you get a high-grade engineered foundation, double glazing, all the latest technology and a full warranty.” 


Golden Homes is based around family values of looking after people and making sure they’re taken care of. “We really want to offer the wider community those values and enhance their building experience,” Houchen says. 


Anyone thinking of building a new home is welcome to pop into Golden Homes’ new office at 321 Main Rd, Huapai, and have an obligation-free chat - plus a great coffee - with their sales team.  


“If people are thinking about building, our team are more than happy to sit down and have a conversation about how the process works, the pros and cons of it and whether it’s right for them. It’s really about providing information to people so that they can then make the best decision for them and their family.”
