Englehart Homes has created the Illoura for new homebuyers seeking a best-in-class solution offering intelligent design, luxury finishes and the latest features for outstanding value.

The Illura Tullamore Display Home Sloping Block Luxury Display Homes   The IllouraThe Illoura is a five-bedroom home designed to optimise your building site’s aspect and outlooks and can be configured as a two-storey home or tailored to a sloping block over several levels.

A generously proportioned ground level guest suite is an alternative master with a separate dressing room and a five-star ensuite.

The Illoura’s impressive entry leads past the guest suite, powder room, laundry and an out-of-sight stair entry to an exceptional family living zone where the ground level’s airy 2.95-metre ceiling height adds to this rear zone’s sheer space and volume.

On one side the kitchen features a marbled effect stone island bench with a table level breakfast counter and integrated Miele appliances. A concealed adjoining butler’s kitchen has a wide gas cooktop with wok burner and its own walk-in pantry.

Upstairs the resort-sized master suite can be configuredwith its own retreat. Its spa-quality ensuite has a doublevanity and bath, and a generous walk-in wardrobe is elegantly concealed behind the bed. The queen-sized family bedrooms are serviced by an ensuite and a family bathroom.

The Illoura showcases Englehart’s commitment to using the best quality craftsmanship and materials to create enduring luxury family homes tailored for individual families.

weeklyreview EXTRACT OF WEEKLY REVIEW DIGITAL EDITORIAL – ENGLEHART HOMES 58 62 O’BRIENS LANE, TEMPLESTOWE In Manningham, the awe evoked by the name Englehart has given rise to a certain etiquette. One may gently update an Englehart-built house, but one does not pull an Englehart house down. To destroy what in effect has become local heritage would be intolerably stupid; your property might never recover its value, and serve you right. –

35 years of being the best Luxury Home Builder

Englehart Homes, one of Melbourne’s most recognised luxury housing brands, is celebrating its 35th anniversary.
A market leader and innovator since its 1st home design became an instant hit in 1980, Englehart Homes has established an enviable reputation for luxury home design and construction in Melbourne’s inner-east.
The Englehart Group also includes Lucas Morris Homes, which Englehart was associated with in the late 1970s and acquired in the early 1990s. While Englehart Homes delivers individual luxury designs in the $700,000-plus range, Lucas Morris focuses on project homes, also for the luxury home buyer, but with luxury home build price tag, in the $400,000 to $700,000 range.
Typically, the group is not resting on its considerable laurels. It has won more than 100 industry awards, but managing director Ron Englehart and his team continue to drive growth and set new benchmarks.
“At the end of the day, we’re only as good as the last home we have built,” he says

The Saville Balwyn North Weekly Review

American architect Frank Lloyd Wright has profoundly influenced contemporary Australian design because his innovations are ideal for our conditions, says Ron Englehart, the managing director of award-winning luxury builder Englehart Homes.
“Wright’s wide, sheltering eaves, recessed entries and integration of indoor and outdoor living are ideal for our conditions and how we live,” he says. “We created the Saville specifically with the Australian climate, lifestyle and landscape in mind by balancing the Wright tradition with contemporary living and technology.”
Signature Wright innovations used in the Saville display home at 25 Belmore Road, Balwyn North, include the deep eaves and recessed front entry and also a mix of natural materials in Daniel Robertson bricks, render and timber, an apparently floating roof elevation, substantial blade walls, stretches of horizontal timber  windows, strong geometrical shapes, a seamless ……..

La Provence Balwyn North Weekly Review

The French styling of La Provence on Belmore Road, Balwyn North, is sure to capture the hearts of new home buyers with its steep mansard roof, double casement windows and elegant symmetry. The house bares its heart with its signature wrought-iron cresting along the hipped slate roof. In the best French tradition, the unique stylised motif appears throughout the house, along with the classic fleur de lys and a signature E for Englehart Homes.

La Provence exemplifies traditional French styling combined with contemporary luxury, says Englehart Group managing director Ron Englehart.

Luxury homes in Melbourne.

Englehart Homes is one of the most recognised brand names for luxury homes in Melbourne.

Ron Englehart, who heads Kew based Englehart Homes, has been at the top of his game for three decades, continually setting new benchmarks in home design.
‘We have always strived to be different with our homes,’ Ron says. ‘We aim to be the market leader. As a result, we have a bit of a following.’
Ron worked for a series of prominent national and international companies prior to starting Englehart Homes almost 30 years ago. His background in management and marketing helped him identify a niche that propelled Englehart Homes into the top-end market.
‘When I started Englehart Homes in the early ’80s, there wasn’t a project home that catered for the third-home buyer,’ Ron says.
