Matchless Murrays Bay

This was another dated 80’s style house waiting for a contemporary makeover and a design that would make the most of its beautiful surroundings.

The owners of this property, a couple – one of which is a prominent CEO, wanted to modernise the space and really take advantage of the beautiful views out to Rangitoto Island. RUSA worked alongside the couple and collaborated with design ideas to bring their dreams to life.

RUSA did landscaping to the rear of property including gardening, building a big new deck, and installing a gas fireplace. We added a new storey to the top of the house, with a new master bedroom with ensuite wardrobe and office. We carried out a complete overhaul of the downstairs rooms including bathrooms, bedroom and lounge. We also polished floors, applied special brick paint, and fitted new timber joinery.

This home was notably featured in ‘Home Style’ magazine, which you can view here.


“We engaged Rusa Construction to complete a renovation project at our family home in Murray’s Bay. From the outset Kent’s level of service and engagement was Easy and Straight forward. Kent kept us informed of progress with e-mails all the time and was always available to discuss, provide guidance and implement changes and variations we requested.

The quality of workmanship in our opinion is “craftsman like” resulting in a job completed to a very high standard, not only to our agreed budget, but also on time.

We would have no problem in recommending Rusa Construction to any prospective client and look forward to working with them again on our next project.”
