Perth project named Australia's home of the year


The home in Sorrento was built by Spadaccini Homes.

A luxurious three-storey home in Sorrento has been named home of the year at the 2017 HIA-CSR Australian Housing Awards.

Announced on Saturday, the annual awards’ most prestigious gong went to builder Spadaccini Homes, which won both the Australian Home of the Year and Australian Custom Built Home of the Year awards.

The home is fully automated, with lights, water features, televisions, security, doors and windows controlled via iPads.

Covering almost 1500sqm, the spectacular home features five bedrooms, imported joinery from Europe, a fully automated smart home system, a spa overlooking the coast from the second floor, and marble flooring throughout — including in the 10-car display garage.

WA also picked up a third prize at the awards, with local builder Averna Homes winning the title of best spec home for a project in Carine.

WA has taken out the Australian Home of the Year prize in three out of the last four years, with Giorgi taking out the top honour in 2014 followed by Gransden Construction in 2015.

The awards are the country’s highest honours for the residential building industry, with the national winners selected form the various State award programs.

This year’s awards included 21 categories ranging from custom-built and display homes to kitchens and outdoor projects.
