Spoilt for choices

Picture this. You’ve been shopping around, doing your research to find that perfect looking home that suits you to a tee. But, short of building a custom home, you just cannot seem to find the one.

Never fear, Ausbuild is here.

We believe that quality design is achieved through innovative thought, elegant delivery and simple presentation.

Some people refer to it as ‘classic or timeless design’ and others define it as ‘true or long lasting value’. We chose to call it, Refined Living.
Refined to enhance the everyday, our Refined Living Collection will seriously change your life.

Here to explain it all is our Managing Director, Matthew Bell.
“We first launched Refined Living back in 2017 with the first single storey collection, and since then we’ve gone on to release a phenomenal double storey collection, and most recently, our new single storey range, which is even more impressive than words can say.

“Our research and development team have been working incredibly hard the last year or so to bring this new collection to our buyers – it’s been a long process, but everyone is incredibly impressed and excited to see these homes start being built.”

Based on buyer behaviour, industry research and current trends, these new designs will give you that instant WOW factor to your new home. Cue family and friend home jealousy here.

So, what makes Refined Living the only home collection range you need in your life?

  • Homes to suit your typical standard block types, and then homes that have been specifically designed for corner blocks and battle-axe blocks – you really can build the home of your dreams on the block of your dreams
  • Four to eight on-trend, breathtakingly stunning facades for each home

Let’s delve a little deeper with the Brentwood. Where large family living occurs in perfect balance, this generous family home creatives enviable balance between living and entertaining with five bedrooms, a media room and an open plan kitchen, living and dining area which opens to the alfresco.

The floorplan...

The looks....


Allure facades are a contemporary take on a traditional home, the use of extra architectural elements some such various materials, colour break ups and feature pieces in different layout combinations creates a fresh-looking facade.


Calibre facades features a raised portico or roofline, which is predominantly the main feature to the facade and can be emphasized using a variety of material finishes and colours.


Designer facades are another take on the Hampton’s style, providing a more niche and contemporary look, which provides a boutique or high-end finish to your home.


Freedom facades project an ultra-modern style created by parapets, simple lines and minimalistic elements that are complementary of the design of the facade, rather than the materials used.


Grand facades are a combination of modern and contemporary elements that showcases a skillion roofline but has been designed to be an affordable variation that still looks the part.


Native facades features a more traditional style, it’s a base version that provides enough materiality and colour variation while still being minimalistic.


Signature facades showcases the popular Hampton’s style that features linear board, wide cover batons, large framing elements around windows and gables, and typically has a grand portico feeling to it.


Trend facades add a secondary, and sometimes a third colour and materiality element that creates a different architectural dimension to the home, while still keeping a traditional feel.
