A PORT Macquarie company has won a contract to build houses for the largest private development on the North Coast. Better Homes will build 260 properties as part of The Ocean Club multi-million dollar development in Lake Cathie. Frames for the first 11 homes are taking shape and shared facilities including a lap pool, clubhouse, tennis court and gym are tipped to be complete by next month. Tonight at Rydges, 60 Hastings real estate agents are invited to a presentation on the development in preparation for the first homes to go on the market. The first residents are expected to move into the architecturally designed and manufactured dwellings by December. Prices for the two-bedroom light-weight cladding homes range from $295,000 to mid-$350,000.
Better Homes is one of four Hastings companies enlisted by Sydney developers, Huntingdale Properties and the Gwynvill Group, to complete the project. General manager John Heagney said the contract meant the world to Better Homes, particularly after tight times in the sector due to the global economic crisis. Continued p2
