Open plan living

With an open-plan living area, you can keep an eye on your little ones while you cook dinner or relax on the couch. There’s ample room for a growing family as open plan living creates a seamless flow throughout the home. With your custom home design your  home will feel more spacious and less cluttered resulting in the perfect combination of practicality and comfortability. As we are luxury home builders, we never forget the luxurious and stylish element of your dream home to make it that extra bit special.

Large bedrooms

These days, kids come with a lot more than just toys. Having a spacious bedroom with plentiful storage is a must for any growing family. As luxury home builders we offer the option of walk-in robes, built-in robes, and even separate study areas for all bedrooms. Parents, you deserve a sanctuary where you can relax and unwind. With a luxurious master suite, you can create a space that is both indulgent and practical for running your household, from custom designed walk-in robes, spacious ensuites, study nooks and retreats and even private balconies.

Gourmet kitchens

The kitchen is the heart of any home, and with a growing family it needs to be practical, functional, and offer those stunning finishes. Our gourmet kitchens come with top quality appliances, plenty of storage and bench space, separate scullery, all with strong attention to detail. With the surge of open plan living across custom built homes, kitchens have become a large part of the household and it’s important you and your family not only stay well fed but feel relaxed in a luxurious kitchen. Plus, you may even be creating a haven for budding chefs!

Outdoor spaces 

Living in Perth means we love spending time outdoors. Having an outdoor space that is perfect for the kids to run around, play and enjoy time away from the screens is a must for any family. Plus, as Aussie’s we love entertaining! It’s essential to have a home that can accommodate your guests with luxury alfresco areas, outdoor kitchens, and swimming pools to create the ultimate entertainer’s paradise in your new luxury home.


Multiple living areas

As your family grows, so do their interests. Having multiple living areas allows everyone in your home to have their own space to relax with a Netflix series or practise their latest instrument – with sound proofing of course. We can create custom home designs to suit your family’s needs from media rooms, to recreational areas, and even outdoor living spaces! Our luxurious Hampton style homes are perfect for that indoor-outdoor living combination offering a summer escape feel.
