    Default Has anyone built a house in Ellenbrook , Perth??

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking at possibly building a house in Ellenbrook,
    Does anyone have any recommendations on who we could build with?
    and what your experiences were? we are looking at a 4x2 with home theater.

    Any advice, tips and info would be very helpful!!

    Thank you

    xx

    We built a house in a suburb 15 min west of Ellenbrook three years ago. We built with Ross north, they are a more expensive builder for sure but have quality and customer service.
    It depends on your budget, for a cheaper option ; homebuyers centre, wow homes etc
    mid range: Scott park, red ink, impressions, ventura
    more pricey; Ross north, don Russell
    then there's luxury: Webb neaves and brown, many boutique smaller builders.

    To give you an idea we paid around $250,000 for a large (300sm) 4x2 with theatre and alfresco. We didn't get any flooring or window covers etc for this price. You can build a lovely 4x2 for around $150-$180 with the more moderately priced builders.

    Good luck! Building is good fun

    I'm not much help, but thought I'd add that when dh and I were looking to build about 18mths ago, the blocks were very small, and quite pricey. To get a house with room for an alfresco and backyard, we had to look elsewhere for a big enough block of land.

    I just left ellenbrook after 3.5 years there.you would be looking at about $420,000 for house and land for what you're after.And the blocks are tiny.

    That being said,I wouldnt build in Ellenbrook,so happy to have left.But good luck

    Our building plans fell through after I fell pregnant with ds and couldn't work. But we had signed to build in st leonards estate near caversham. For a 500 sq m block with 4 x 2 house, theater, alfresco, and decent back yard we were looking at $450,000, completely finished. Maybe look in the papers for stage 1 blocks being sold, and go from there, as blocks are usually bigger and cheaper

    I have family who built in Aveley (right next to Ellenbrook). The set up there seems a little nicer but still over priced (I think) considering block size and distance from train, river and beach.
    They went with Ross North, a very nice home.
