Barrett Homes expansion into Central Otago four years ago has proven a good move for both the company and its customers.Barrett Homes Central Otago is operated and jointly owned by Cromwell locals Jason Williams and Dee Copeland.
Dee says strong sales have been an obvious endorsement that the company’s range of homes is meeting the market as well as gaining approval from the many delighted customers who have had houses built.
Barrett Homes new Cromwell show home, which opened in 7 Smitham Drive, Gair Estate, in December, showcases some of the points of difference offered, she says.Clad in warmly-toned vertical cedar, the double mono-pitch roofed house immediately creates an inviting first impression from the street frontage.
A generous 200 square metres, the home includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas and a double garage.Perfect for family living and entertaining, the light, spacious kitchen features stone bench tops, skylights and quality Fisher & Paykel appliances.
Jason and Dee bought into the Central Otago business as partners with Barrett Homes national directors in 2013. They were looking to start a building company in the area and could see the business model, quality of homes and reputation of Barrett Homes as a well-established company was an ideal fit.
Its been challenging but incredibly exciting. We’re lucky with our location in Cromwell,” says Dee. “We love Cromwell and Central Otago; we have seen real estate in the area explode and it’s been a whirlwind and we’ve been fortunate to be part of that and to grow with it.”
New home sales are being driven by people wanting more affordable living than is available in Queenstown or Wanaka, as well as those moving from larger centres.“We’ve seen some people filter through from Dunedin and Auckland, and that along with other factors has had a really big impact on our market.”
Barrett Homes’ house plans provide for a wide variety of needs, budgets and lifestyles, whether to nest, rest or invest.House and land packages start from just $590,000. These options including all landscaping which means the new owner can move in with nothing left to do and enjoy all their home has to offer.
“We include many items in our standard house packages such as two heat pumps, Rib-Raft insulated foundations, stone kitchen benchtops, garage carpet and insulated garage doors.” “It’s a fixed price, everything is included; the fencing, concrete, driveway and landscaping. There’s no surprises.”
