House to be sold for Aro­hanui Hospice


Nearly four years af­ter con­struc­tion got un­der way, a house built by stu­dents for a char­ity is al­most ready to be sold.

UCOL car­pen­try stu­dents be­gan con­struc­tion on the 111 square me­tre re­lo­cat­able house in 2013.

This week, it was put on the back of a truck and moved to the Wescombe Grove de­vel­op­ment in Feild­ing.

It will now be put up for sale as a fundraiser for Aro­hanui Hospice.

The Palmer­ston North based hospice will use the sale to help fund its an­nual short­fall of $2.5 mil­lion.

Hospice strat­egy and op­er­a­tions di­rec­tor Louise Cur­tis said the aim was to have the house ready to go on the mar­ket by early May.

It was not yet de­cided how the house will be sold.

The sec­tion it was moved to needed land­scap­ing, a deck and garage built, a drive­way laid and plumb­ing con­nected.

The house has four bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, a sep­a­rate laun­dry, an open plan liv­ing and din­ing area, and a stand­alone dou­ble garage.

‘‘We are thrilled to have se­cured the site and have work com­mence on this project,’’ Cur­tis said pre­vi­ously.

Humphries Con­struc­tion and Cen­tral House Movers as­sisted with re­lo­cat­ing the house.

Any in­ter­est in the house can be di­rected to Cur­tis on 06 3502241.
