Welcome to the Australian Heritage Homes Website

We are Melbourne’s finest in custom builders. Custom design? Steep block? No worries. As experienced custom and period home builders, we love a challenge and we love doing what the volume builders won’t.

We are a family-owned company of building contractors and boutique home builders in Melbourne. Our company was founded by Siggy Van Unen, father of the current owner/operator, Renay van Unen, who has been building with the family business for the past 25 years.

Why Should You Consider Us?

These boutique home builders listen to you. We understand your needs and respect your budget, we get that it’s not easy building your dream home, and we promise we will work with you and will hold your hand through the whole project, whether that’s a heritage home, a period home or a custom home.

We are some of the most premier Melbourne builders. When investing in your dream home, you want it to not only look good but also last a lifetime. We guarantee the quality of our work and our attention to detail is the best. You will always deal directly with the owner and receive better value for your money from these boutique home builders. You will deal without salespeople and middle-men to pay, our overheads are very low… so your money goes straight into your home instead of into others’ pockets. All of our homes are built to maintain their superior quality and finish decades longer than standard homes.

Australian Heritage Homes is located in Warrandyte South, Victoria and most of our building is situated in the Eastern and South Eastern region of Melbourne and outlying suburbs. We have many specialties, but they include Melbourne heritage homes and Melbourne period homes. We make sure that you are looked out for. Most of our clients become friends for life!

Testimonials

Over the past 7 years I have issued 155 to 200 building permits for new dwellings for Australian Heritage Homes Pty Ltd. I have always found their workmanship and organisation skills to be of the very highest standards.

We would also like to take this opportunity to again thank you personally and everyone who was involved in the building of our home. The entire “building experience” through Australian Heritage Homes is one that we have enjoyed thoroughly.
