Dream home, dream retirement in Mandurah
After living in Warwick for 40 years, David and Rhonda Jessup decided to move south to Mandurah to enjoy a relaxed retirement. They had spent a lot of time in the area with regular trips to their beach shack – and decided to replace that shack with their dream home.
“We were able to subdivide our holiday property, so we decided to move away from Perth and take advantage of living by the ocean,” said David.
“There was a house being built by Webb & Brown-Neaves close to our beach house. The design seemed to fit everything we wanted and, as we watched the building process, we were impressed with the quality and workmanship that went into the house. It was from that point that we decided to build our dream home, and we chose Webb & Brown-Neaves to make that dream possible.”
David and Rhonda worked closely with Webb & Brown-Neaves to create a home that reflected their home’s unique position.
“We’re actually on an island within the canals and inlets, which has influenced our choice of colours and furnishings both inside and outside. Our style of home allows us to enjoy a beautiful ocean view of Avalon Bay, with living areas on the top floors. It has a feeling of peace and tranquility, which we love.”
The Jessups found the building process to be an easy one. “Building with Webb & Brown-Neaves, we found everyone was very helpful, particularly our pre-start consultant, interior designer and building supervisor. Our sales consultant Kim Gartrell was also very helpful and suggested and followed up on initial changes that we wished to make. If ever we decided to build again, we would have no hesitation in choosing Webb & Brown-Neaves.”
“We love everything about our home. The layout, the colours, the lifestyle it has given us on the beach, and the quality home that has been built. Our decision to build this home has to be one of the best decisions in our 44 years of marriage.”
Top Tips from the Jessup Family
- Do your homework and have a clear budget in mind.
- Look at display homes to find a builder who offers attention to detail, good workmanship and has good work ethics.
- Build with people who are happy to spend time with you, answer questions and offer advice in all areas of the building trade.
