Design guidelines for coastal communities

Let’s talk Coastal Classic

Congratulations, if you’ve decided your next move is a custom home built in one of Perth’s prestigious coastal precincts, you’ve come to the right place. Brooks are luxury home builders with a reputation for building architecturally designed, premium homes which are customised to meet your specific needs. Our back catalogue includes a number of impressive properties built in Harbour Rise, Sorrento and similar coastal communities. We specialise in the emerging ‘Classic Coastal’ style where our craftspeople bring together key elements such as innovative design, colour, form and materials to create exquisite homes that reflect and enhance the elegance and character of the development.

Created by design

Good urban planning requires continuity of character and design principles. Prestigious developments along the coast achieve quality housing standards by requiring landowners to comply with the governing Design Guidelines and some restrictive covenants. This may seem onerous, but in fact it protects your investment by ensuring only quality homes are approved in the development. With the benefit of harmonised street scapes, generous public open space, schools, shopping and lifestyle amenities, it’s clear to see how easy it is to build a house you can truly call home.

What’s required

To conform with the building guidelines, your builder must ensure that your proposed property:

  • does not exceed high restrictions
  • has correct setbacks from the street and boundaries
  • conforms to the agreed colour palette
  • has a minimum of 35% of the lot size as open space
  • meets energy provisions for design and construction
  • complies with planning standards and building regulations

Building a home with Brooks

At Brooks Construction, we before we start, we talk to you about the design features and inclusions that matter to you most. Then our experienced in-house designer will guide you through the constraints of your block, your budget, guidelines and covenants, bringing together the elements of your ideas into a cohesive design. We take care of every aspect of the build, from concept, planning approvals to completion.

We are luxury home builders with a track record in building custom homes that stretches over decades. We craft homes that are designed to meet your specific needs. We believe downsizing your land shouldn’t mean downsizing your lifestyle. We believe the shape and size of your block should not restrict you from building the dream home you have always wanted.

Inspirational design does not cost more

We specialise in luxury two storey homes because they offer so much flexibility. If your block is open aspect, choose upstairs living maximises the view. If you’re entertainers, separating the bedrooms and creating a living area that flows through to a garden or deck works well. With clever zoning, modern building materials and smart technology it’s possible to configure your home in a way that works for you. By reducing the home’s footprint on the block, you maximise internal space and still have room for a landscaped garden, a pool or a purpose built alfresco dining area.
