Watch our video walk-through

Our previous display home, the 'Vincent' pays homage to Perry Lakes’ astonishing legacy, showcasing incredible depths of character, design and originality.

The Vincent is located in the Perry Lakes Estate, Floreat. The Perry Lakes Estate is highly sought after for both its rich history and enviable location just four kilometres from pristine beaches and only eight kilometres from the Perth CBD.

Austurban Homes utilised only master tradespeople and the highest quality products to create what we believe is one of the finest homes in both Perry Lakes and the greater Perth region.

Unlike other ‘display’ homes, this Show Home will demonstrate what’s possible when a truly boutique home building team pushes the limits for innovation, cutting-edge style and consummate quality.

The Vincent enjoys a conspicuous position within Perry Lakes and is highly visible from Brookdale Street; the main thoroughfare from Floreat to Claremont. More than just a builder in Perry Lakes, we are part of the community itself and proudly sponsor the Perry Lakes Hawks Junior Basketball Competition.

In a previous life, this esteemed site hosted numerous world-class athletics events, most notably the 1962 British Empire and Commonwealth Games. Its transformation into a residential estate released incredibly rare land in Perth’s leafy and prestigious western suburbs.

The Design

The privilege of constructing a new home within Perry Lakes brings with it strict design covenants that reflect the housing styles of the 1950's and 1960's. These homes reflected the ever-popular modernist movement that challenged traditional views on architecture by placing greater emphasis on the form of the building itself. Expressed in part by boxlike elevations, skillion or very low pitched roofs and large expanses of glazing

Much like meeting a client’s design brief, our master designers have fused key design traits of the era with ontrend architectural features, resulting in a truly unique home defined by clean lines, light-filled living spaces and a bold connection to the outdoors.
