HIA WA Executive Director, Michael McGowan praised the home as, well designed to complement its natural surroundings.

“It makes an impressive and harmonious impact on the location and allows for sweeping river views at the rear of the home,” he said.

This year’s HIA CSR Great Southern Home of the Year was awarded to Home Group WA Great Southern for their display home, The Procida, in Bayonet Head.

“It’s a spacious and well zoned family home that has huge market appeal,” Mr McGowan said.

“The judges commended the well thought out design and faultless construction detail.”

Other notable winners included:

Dunsborough’s Bluewater Building Co - awarded the South West Innovation in Lightweight Housing of the Year for their project in Eagle Bay.

South West Building Company - awarded South West’s Innovation in Housing of the Year for their project in Dunsborough.
