Sanctuary New Homes - Your style, your sanctuary


Helen Builds Her Dream Home


Helen Twemlow had been looking for a home builder for a long time for her unusual block of land that backs onto Kooindah Waters golf course.

She wanted a builder who would build just the home she wanted but found the search for the right builder frustrating so, like many of us, she tried Googling for a builder on the Central Coast.

While searching via Google, Helen luckily found Sanctuary New Homes home building company.

"The builders I had spoken to wouldn’t make changes to their designs to accommodate my specific design requests to suit the block of land. However, Gary and Amanda from Sanctuary New Homes were very helpful and made quite a few changes to one of their designs for me.

"I wanted high ceilings as well as French Doors to the courtyard, to take in the natural bush views from the alfresco, rather than just having windows. Both Amanda and Gary worked with me combining our ideas to create a beautiful home," said Helen.

“Both Amy and Sam in the Sanctuary office at Tuggerah were a great help throughout the process. Amy, with colour and inclusions choices before the build and Sam kept me up to date with construction progress on a regular basis. I felt that communication was important.”

Helen chose a modified version of the single storey Beaumont design with the Classic facade. The original home design had four bedrooms, but this was reduced to three so that the alfresco could be extended to accommodate the golf course and bush views.

"All in all I have a lovely home. Any glitches were attended to quickly and professionally and Sanctuary New Homes kept informed all the way through. So, I am very happy with my new home," Helen concluded.

Amanda Palmer commented, "She’s a lovely lady and makes great chocolate cupcakes. We were delighted to have Helen as one of our clients".
