What is the history behind Perry Homes?
Perry Homes is one of NSW’s largest and most trusted project home builders, building from Hervey Bay in Queensland and Newcastle in New South Wales.

Tell us about your role and area of expertise?
I am a building and design consultant and have been in the industry for 35 years. I have helped hundreds of clients see their dream home become a reality.
What services do Perry Homes provide?
We offer our clients advice on a home design which would suit their block of land. We have a range of over 150 house designs; however, we are happy to modify a design or even use their own design. As part of our service, we undertake site inspections to ensure the design works on their land and then provide an obligation free quote.
Tell us about your display home?
The single storey Aspen 249 is one of our most popular plans, with four bedrooms. Compact in design, this meticulously planned home accommodates every member of the family. With the addition of the fully-enclosed media room and multipurpose room, it provides more than enough space for a growing family.
The well-equipped kitchen, which includes a walk-in pantry and breakfast bar is a pivotal part of this exciting open floor plan design. The Aspen layout is highly functional for family living and entertaining, with stack doors off the family room leading out to a private spacious terrace, which is perfect for alfresco dining. This design provides seamless blend of space and style in a compact layout.
Tell us about some of the new, exciting projects you are working on now and in the future.
We are currently marketing the new land development in Sandy Beach. The Seacrest Estate is surrounded by native bushland, but is also close to one of the best beaches on the Coffs Coast. We have a number of house and land packages to suit most budgets on this estate, which is only 20 minutes north of Coffs Harbour.
We are also excited to announce that our brand new display centre is currently being planned for this estate and is expected to open in 2018.
What are the standout features or the benefits of building with Perry Homes?
There are more than fifty single, split level and two storey floor plans in the Perry Homes portfolio, and most offer a number of variations to cater for individual needs. These plans have been designed to suit flat and sloping land, varying from courtyard through traditional and up to acreage size blocks.
One thing that really sets us apart from other project home builders is that we are happy to work with our clients, to ensure they get exactly what they want.
Whilst we have received many awards over the years, including a number from the Housing Industry Association (HIA), it is the number of clients who have built three or four homes with us that is the most satisfying.
What makes you stand out above your competitors?
Perry Homes is synonymous with quality built homes offering a high standard of finish and a range of lifestyle options. All homes are built to the highest Australian standards, using only A-grade materials from leading manufacturers.
Perry Homes are justifiably proud of their strong reputation as a respected quality builder and endorse this by providing every new home owner occupier with a written 20 Year Structural Guarantee.
