Our Awards

5 years running – an example of how Yarrum Designer Homes is continually providing excellence in the building industry! The Awards showcase creativity, innovation and excellence in residential housing projects.

The awards certainly show Yarrum Designer Homes can produce the best houses right across the building spectrum, proving just how much depth the company has in design, the talent of its subcontractors, and the quality of its suppliers.


In 2016 we kept up our winning run by picking up the following awards:

Display Home $500,001

Project Home up to $300,000

Display Home $325,001 – $350,000

Custom Built Home $600,001 – $800,000

It was another great year for the Yarrum team. A lot of hard work and time had been spent keeping our standards as high as possible, and these awards reflected that – here’s to more to come!

2014 was another great year for awards, with Yarrum Designer Homes winning best project home under $300,000 for a stunning home at Fern Bay near Newcastle, and best project home over $400,000 for modified version of the Muirfield design. This same home won the coveted Project Home of the Year, and will now go to the HIA National Awards in mid 2015 to be in the running for Australian Project Home of the Year

If that wasn’t enough, the company won Best Custom Home $800,000 to $1 Million for a grand residence designed and constructed by Yarrum.



In 2013 HIA-CSR Hunter Housing Awards again saw Yarrum Designer Homes being commended, receiving awards for Best Project Home up to $300k, Best Outdoor Project and Best Custom Home $800,001 –$1 million!


In 2012 the most prestigious award was won by Yarrum Designer Homes, ‘Hunter Valley Home of the Year’.

The judges said “the architectural design of the house was outstanding”. They gave it top marks for all finishes and workmanship, including its energy-efficient qualities. Stephen Murray, Managing Director of Yarrum Designer Homes, was most proud to win the Home of the Year, but also that the company won Best Project Home under $300,000 for the Killara design.
