Passion for building runs high in Millwater

Turns out we’re not the only ones are as passionate about new homes and craftsmanship as us builders. So we were surprised when we met a lovely group of retired ladies who can talk construction and materials like the best of them. These ladies who have all built in Millwater, paid us a visit at our previous Millwater show home that recently closed. It was great afternoon, sharing our passion for building and Maddren’s longstanding heritage over a few cups of tea.


While we’re humble builders at heart, our heritage as an independent family-owned business is something we’re immensely proud of. The ladies were a lively group who were keen to hear about our ongoing plans in Millwater as well as a sneak peak at the plans for the new show home.

Located close to the upcoming Milldale development, the new site for the showhome has just broken ground and will be a real modern beauty when finished. It was designed by Andre Upton-Kemp of Our Space Architect who crafted a couple of our other successful showhomes. The plans and 3D renderings went down a treat for the ladies who were impressed by the clever sun study as part of the design process, so that the house bathes in maximum sunshine and light.

After the ladies visit it was the gents turn, whose own group goes by the cheeky moniker R.O.M.E.O which playfully stands for Retired Old Men Eating Out. They were just as passionate about building and showed us there’s plenty of sprite and spirit in Millwater. In addition to ongoing developments over the next few years there’s a vibrant community there now, that’s only going to get better. Why not check it out, or pop across to our showhome in Orewa.
