Original Design Homes


Wholly Western Australian owned and operated, with a wealth of industry experience and expertise, Shelford Quality Homes believes that while great value is all about affordability, great value also means never compromising on quality, which is why every Shelford Quality Home is built to the highest standards, using only superior building materials from Perth's most trusted building suppliers!

Indeed, this striking three-level home was not only built to create a lasting impression, it was also featured in a recent edition of WA HOME Design + Living! Constructed by Shelford Quality Homes in South Beach, with superb views to Rottnest Island, the home accommodates a young family of four with an innovative floor plan over three ingenious levels that add a sense of space and separation to relaxed Australian living.

The home is sited on a very compact 332m² block with a frontage of just 11.8m. The site was transformed by the addition of a custom-designed executive residence with a total floor area of 537m² built over a concrete swimming pool. Not surprisingly, the project involved 34 pages of detailed design drawings to convey the remarkable attention to detail the construction of this home entailed!

According to Operations Manager, Mike Conlan, "our clients had very clear ideas about the development of their family-friendly floor plan. They were also very specific about the level of detail required for fixtures, fittings and finishes."

Working closely with the clients to refine their ideas, our talented in-house design team was able to create a contemporary home over three distinct levels, including a completely self-contained second floor. Maximising the potential of the site meant designing a home that took advantage of the northerly aspect and harnessed the winter sun. This brief was not only met, but exceeded - with the home flooded with natural light in winter, and in summer, light and heat controlled by the clever cantilever of the upper floor - producing an overhang effect that not only appears to defy gravity, but also provides protection to the sparkling plunge pool below.
