As we approach the upcoming summer season of great weather and longer days, it’s the perfect time to explore the exceptional features that come with a Manor home.

Deep, wide wrap-around verandahs, large rear decks and inviting alfresco areas are just some of the features you can get on your new Manor home to make the warmer months even more comfortable.


The Australian summer often means sitting on your front verandah, taking in the views and watching the world go by. A classic feature on many Manor homes, a verandah is the ultimate addition to your home. A deep verandah can keep direct sunlight off your home, reducing its temperature in the height of summer and making for an inviting entrance.

A large rear deck with a flow for entertaining is something we hear again and again from our clients as their favourite part of their new home. A deck and alfresco area is a true extension of your indoor space. Some recently built decks at the top of our list have been completed with upgrades like a fully enclosed ceiling with some fans to make the space comfortable even on the hottest summer nights.
