Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - RESIDENTIAL -

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.

Averna Homes man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Paul Serra ac­cepts his award from John Coles.
