Gentry Homes Entry Takes TOP AWARD in BIA Renaissance Competition

The Building Industry Association (BIA) of Hawaii awarded a Gentry Homes single-family home a Grand Award in the new home residential category at its 2017 Renaissance ACE (Awards in Construction Excellence) program.

Gentry’s Coral Ridge Plan 4 model is located in the newest single-family neighborhood bordering Coral Creek Golf Course in the Ewa by Gentry master-planned community in Central Oahu.

The Plan 4 Tiare model is a four-bedroom, three-bath home with an additional living area on the second floor. With a total of 1,946 square feet of living area and two stories, the home’s downstairs bedroom suite with full bath makes it ideal to accommodate extended-family ohana living or a home office.

Rick Hobson, Gentry’s vice president of sales and marketing, said, “We are very excited and grateful for this prestigious award from the BIA-Hawaii. All the homes at Coral Ridge, including the Plan 4, are outstanding and represent an optimum level of value in today’s marketplace. Many interior and exterior appointments that normally add thousands more to the price are included in all Coral Ridge homes as standard features.”

Prices for these homes start in the low $700,000s.

Attention to detail and “Green Living” are emphasized throughout with such features as a 120-gallon HECO-approved solar water heater with an automatic timer; direct fiber optic cable; LED lighting package; dual-pane, low-E, high-performance vinyl windows with UV protection; energy-efficient 17 SEER central air conditioning with a filtration and light purification system; the energy-saving NEST learning thermostat; and open cell foam insulation that seals the home from outside noise and dust pollens, and reduces air conditioning loss. All Coral Ridge homes are also pre-wired with CAT-5 computer-grade cable for internet connectivity.

“We took a step away from highly structured living spaces and created an open floor plan that is perfect for everyday living,” Hobson added. “Living and dining rooms combine into one larger area with a direct view of the kitchen and entertainment space. With open floor plans, nine foot-ceiling heights on the first and second levels, large master suites and family rooms, and abundant windows for natural lighting, the interiors have a spacious, airy ambiance.”

All homes have an interior laundry room, wood kitchen cabinets, Corian countertops, stainless-steel sink, GE ceramic cook-top range/oven, dishwasher, microwave appliance package, two-car driveway and full-sized enclosed garage.
