In September, 2013, Neil Williams and Sons was awarded 'South East Victoria Home of the Year' in Inverloch for a three-bedroom Flinders home, before a crowd of local industry leaders and peers from across the region.

Originally designed as a partnership between architects Tim Spicer and the late Col Bandy, this intricate home comprises an exposed steel frame with timber infill, a suspended concrete slab and hand troweled raked ceilings.

Exterior cladding has been installed with expressed joints, creating a subtle visual grid on the homes façade.

Perfect for entertaining on a warm night, the home includes a cantilevered deck constructed over a 95,000 litre water tank, complete with a stainless steel floor-to-ceiling curtain reducing the need for a set balustrade.

An opulent gallery style kitchen flows seamlessly to the family meals area whilst showcasing a combination of stainless steel and marble bench tops. The judges described the home’s design as ‘Very effective, taking in the full site and requirements of the client.’ They added, ‘The big north elevation with good cross ventilation, double glazed aluminium windows and polished concrete floors, complete this home and ensure it blends into its surrounding environment. It has a real wow factor.’

HIA Victorian Executive Director Gil King congratulated the winners. ‘What a wonderful result for the Mornington Peninsula’, Mr. King said. ‘HIA is delighted with the exceptional quality of entries this year. All winners and finalists should be proud to have reached the pinnacle of building standards demonstrated in these quality homes,’ he said.

‘It can be very easy to be distracted by the negatives in the current market, however the Mornington Peninsula region is not only a tourism hot spot for Victoria but showcases some of the state’s finest homes and builders alike.’ said Mr. King.
