The Waverley

This beautiful, heritage style home was custom designed to meet the client’s brief. Having lived in a modern style home previously, the owners were seeking a timeless design to suit their new lot in the leafy suburb of Shenton Park. We worked with the clients to navigate the approvals process to allow the home to appear one-storey from the front, but offer a two-storey aspect at the back, allowing room for a second living area, guest bedroom and bathroom.

During this build our team achieved a classic, heritage look while implementing innovative methods of construction. The home frame and cladding was prefabricated offsite, craned in and constructed in a matter of days, including double glazing pre-installed. This not only offered cost- and time-effectiveness to the owners, but also reduced environmental impact and waste onsite. Careful attention was paid in the interior to marry the traditional with contemporary finishings, add clever storage solutions to maximise living space and bring individual touches through design aspects such as tiling – resulting in a beautifully finished end result that reflected the owners’ personal style.

“We had built before and we knew what we wanted in our second build. We were very satisfied with the finished product with Schlager, in particular how the house seamlessly blends in with the character homes in the area with a timeless weatherboard design. Alex, (Construction Manager) and Steve (Site Supervisor) were very attentive and responsive to our requests during the construction process. We would recommend Schlager as a builder to anyone with confidence.”Andrew and Dianne, Shenton Park.
