From compact cottages to spacious family residences, Blue Hills Cottages designs and builds homes with lasting appeal
The Kellswater Manor is reminiscent of a bygone era, featuring box bay windows, ram’s horn finials, timber fretwork, a gable end and awning decorations hand-crafted by the company’s own master craftsmen. This clever design retains its Federation character while taking advantage of morning and northern sun with large windows. The octagonal conservatory has tinted louvre windows to capture summer breezes and winter sun. The home’s many period features include three-metre ceilings, a wide entry hall with corbelled and capped arches, timber picture rails, hardwood flooring, a period gas fireplace, redgum kitchen and bathrooms and extensive use of leadlight feature windows.
Blue Hills Cottages has expanded to include quirky and uniquely Australian homes in Colorbond steel. The company is now designing and building many of these homes using Colorbond steel, which can have a period look or an effect that is extremely modern. A Blue Hills Cottages Colorbond dwelling not only looks great, but the exterior is virtually maintenance-free.
Blue Hills Cottages is a family-owned and operated business with many years’ experience. Patrick and Jane are a hands-on team who provide service throughout the whole building project. Any of the company’s existing designs can be modified to meet your individual needs or a new custom design can be created to suit your lifestyle and budget.
Blue Hills Cottages has earned a reputation for beautiful, high-quality, period reproduction homes that can be built to lock-up stage in most areas or through to completion locally. The couple’s son, Shane, has won many awards for excellence in carpentry and creates most of the period details featured on the homes by hand, giving each home its own individual charm. Every home has a 5-star energy rating and fixed contract price, and all work completed by Blue Hills Cottages has a builder’s warranty.
Each home is priced individually, depending on the choice of fittings, finishes, ceiling height, extent of period decoration and level of owner participation — either to lock-up or completion stage.
