A Bris­bane builder has won the cov­eted HIA Queens­land Home of the Year award for a stun­ning, cus­tom-built house in Cleve­land.

Cas­tle Glenn Homes beat 10 other fi­nal­ists to take out the ti­tle, in what was a hotly con­tested cat­e­gory.

The de­vel­oper also won the Cus­tom Home cat­e­gory.

De­scribed as “ar­chi­tec­turally-de­signed for the block with a beau­ti­ful as­pect look­ing up the canal out onto the ocean”, the time­less and el­e­gant home in­cluded nat­u­ral tex­tures and fin­ishes through­out.

Act­ing HIA Queens­land ex­ec­u­tive direc­tor Michael Roberts said the cat­e­gory win­ners showed the in­dus­try had de­liv­ered qual­ity projects that would stand the test of time.

“The ev­i­dence of this year’s win­ners shows they have risen to the chal­lenge,” he said.

Con­dev Con­struc­tions won the Apart­ment of the Year cat­e­gory for its Tem­ple Palm Beach de­vel­op­ment, while Aria Prop­erty Group took out the Apart­ment Com­plex cat­e­gory for its The Mel­bourne Res­i­dences com­plex at South Bris­bane.

The Best Af­ford­able Hous­ing cat­e­gory was won by Style­mas­ter Homes, while Eco Essence Homes took out the GreenS­mart Sus­tain­able Home ti­tle and Planet Homes won for best Dis­play Home.

Sal­tair Con­struc­tions took out the In­no­va­tion in Hous­ing cat­e­gory for its use of con­tem­po­rary style and ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign with sus­tain­able materials and meth­ods.

The house was built off-site in about eight weeks be­fore be­ing trans­ported and as­sem­bled in just one day.

Veran­dah House In­te­ri­ors and Mo­saic Prop­erty Group each took out top awards in res­i­den­tial in­te­rior de­sign cat­e­gories.

Plan­ta­tion Homes was awarded the Queens­land Pro­fes­sional Builder, Ma­jor Builders ti­tle.
