SPADACCINI BUILD HOME OF YEAR
A SORRENTO home was named the Perth Home of the Year at the recent 2016 HIA Perth Housing Awards, beating 11 other finalists to take home the coveted prize.
Built by renowned luxury builder Spadaccini Homes, the three-storey residence on Seaward Loop was rewarded for its outstanding workmanship, according to the judges.
“The judges were hard-pressed to find fault with any of the tradesmanship within the home,” they said.
“The attention to detail of the finishing trades was evident in the overall presentation of the home, which was immaculate.
“Particular mention should be made of the high standard of the tiling, plastering and painting in the home that was without fault.”
Spadaccini Homes director Rob Spadaccini said the win could not have come at a better time.
“There is so much negativity around at the moment fuelled by people who don’t know what they’re talking about,” he said.
“But to have more than 200 builders all taking pride in the quality of their work and striving for the same award was fantastic.
“We are over the moon, ecstatic; it’s been a great win for us.”
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom Sorrento home was also a winner in the $4 million and over custom-built home category and went on to take out the John Pietersen Award for Perth Custom-Built Home of the Year before being named Perth Home of the Year on the night.
“The home has everything from a motor vehicle turntable, marble piers, polished plaster, stone floors – and that’s just in the garage,” Mr Spadaccini said.
“It also has underfloor heating throughout, a spa bath on the third level, veneered cabinets right throughout, everything customised, including furniture such as the chairs in the alfresco, extremely detailed ceilings with negative detail.
“Unless you see it, it’s very hard to comprehend.”
This is the second HIA Perth Home of the Year award for Spadaccini Homes, also awarded the $1.6 million to $2.6 million custom-built home prize for a residence on Margaret Street in Watermans Bay.
Other winners in the custombuilt category include Mondo Exclusive Homes, Oswald Homes and Giorgi Architects & Builders.
In the project homes category, Aveling Homes was the first to step up to collect a prize for a residence on Cuttlefish Street, Yanchep, in the up to $230,000 group.
Burswood builder Right Homes impressed judges once again with a house in The Vines winning it best project home in the $230,001 to $300,000 category.
The judges said the Bentall Way home showed great pride in the quality of workmanship and worked in well with the surrounding environment.
Other winners on the night included Myaree-based Summit Homes, with the Golden Key Award for Perth Display Home of the Year for its Akira display in Calleya estate, Banjup, and Belmont builder Averna Homes with the Spec Home of the Year prize for a property on Gemstone Boulevard in Carine, for an individual house either sold offthe-plan or built for sale.
The Seaward Loop residence is on two blocks of land and has uninterrupted ocean views.
