Jalcon Homes Congratulates House of the Year National Winners
Jalcon Homes, one of Auckland’s most active home builders, has congratulated the supreme winners of the 2014 Registered Master Builders House of the Year national awards.
The National Awards were held in Auckland on Saturday 15th November, with Kiwi comedian Te Radar as the MC.
Jalcon, which took out three prestigious awards for homes in Hobsonville, Point Chevalier and Stonefields in the regional awards announced in September, is pleased to see high quality homes being recognised as the Auckland housing market continues to come under huge pressure from rising demand.
Andrew Olsen, Sales Manager for Jalcon Homes, says of the House of the Year Awards: “It is great to see the building industry continually recognise operators creating high quality, durable homes for people. We congratulate the winners of this year’s supreme awards, who are each responsible for building several homes a year.
“As one of Auckland’s most active home builders delivering 50 - 100 homes each year, and with over 40 House of the Year awards under our belt over the years, we create homes with a quality that is consistently in the top percentage of all builds. We deliver quality and quantity, which is no small task but one that we pride ourselves upon.”
Jalcon had three homes recognised in the regional awards; the show home at 2 Magma Crescent in Stonefields was the Category Winner for the GIB Show Home award as well as a recipient of the Gold and Gold Reserve awards for the same category.
Jalcon also took out Gold and Gold Reserve medals for a modern, light-filled home at 17 Maranui Avenue in Point Chevalier, in the James Hardie New Home ($450,000 - $600,000) category. Jalcon delivered a remove and rebuild service on the home, and the result is a classic, welcoming family home.

Jalcon was also awarded Gold and Gold Reserve in the regional awards for a fabulous home at 3 Gypsy Moth Street, Hobsonville, in the Placemakers New Home ($350,000 - $450,000) category.
Olsen says that with strong activity across a number of residential sites in Auckland, including Hobsonville in the West, Pine Harbour in East Auckland and Long Bay to the north of the city, Jalcon is seeing rising demand for compact, design-led lock up and leave homes from young families and baby boomers, and also continued demand for larger family homes.
He says: “We are seeing huge demand for our architecturally-designed Sierra Terraces homes in Hobsonville, with 14 out of 39 homes sold in the first few weeks of being on the market. This demand shows that buyers are more than happy to live in terraced housing with shared outdoor spaces and minimal maintenance required on the land.”
“Similarly, we’ve had a surge of interest in our stunning coastal development The Brae in Pine Harbour. With the weather warming up now, people are really starting to consider their living options and with a range of lifestyle, commuter, school and sports amenities nearby, the homes we are creating at The Brae are ticking many boxes for modern couples and families.”
