Adelaide Hills builder, Shire Homes offers custom creations and dream home designs at Newenham.

Building your dream home doesn’t have to be daunting. At Newenham you can rest assured your custom build process is a breeze with our award-winning builders producing unique, top quality homes for you and your family (and without all the fuss).

We know finding the right builder to create your dream home is a tricky decision on its own – let alone the build itself! The right combination of expertise, direction, flexibility and quality can be hard to find, so we’ve looked far and wide throughout South Australia to find the right builders for you to create the home you’ve always dreamt of.

We love our builders and we know you will too, so we’d like to introduce you to another of our Design Village partners, Shire Homes.

Our partnership with Shire ensures you receive expert advice, while having the flexibility and confidence to design the home of your dreams.

“We always want to please the customer, so whatever you want, we build. We want to fulfil your dreams,” says Shane Williams, founder of Shire.

Shane and his wife Linda have run Shire for the past 15 years with their expert crew. They are completely focussed on their clients and their homes. With over 100 custom homes and a variety of other unique extensions and renovations complete, they are great at what they do (and they love it too).

“I am very passionate about the building industry, I’ve been in it my whole life and I think it’s the greatest industry on earth,” Shane says. “Honestly it’s the pride of walking away and knowing you’ve built your customer the best home possible – that’s the best part.”

Born and bred in the Adelaide Hills, Shire delivers homes that suit both the lifestyle and the aesthetic of our beautiful Hills. Living in the Hills themselves, and crafting most of their builds in the area, the pair say there’s nowhere else they’d rather be.

“I always wanted to live in the Hills. I love the greenery and the beauty of the place – it’s the best place in the world to live. There’s so much natural water, wetlands, trees…”

It’s this love of the Hills lifestyle and natural surrounds that’s led Shire to collaborate with Newenham.

“I think the Newenham project is wonderful. The estate is the perfect harmony between a city suburb and country living, and their refurbishment of the sales centre is fantastic. The grounds are great too – it’s that whole country setting they’ve really kept that alive, which is exactly what we’re trying to do at Shire too.”

Shire pride themselves in building homes which look unique but fit the feel of the Hills, keeping up with that gorgeous  environment.

“We want to maintain the appeal of the area as a whole, creating a unique home which fits in with that country flair, and fits in with the ambience beautifully.”

Country-style gables and sand-stone are amongst some of the more typical options to achieve that classic Hills home, but Shane says your home can be as unique as you’d like. This is no-limits building.

“We can build it out of brick or we can build it out of limestone – we’re very diverse. We are not in the business of making square boxes, our homes are all very interesting and exciting.”

While advice and expertise is important, Shane says it’s the homeowner’s decision that remains priority. “I hate saying no, so even when clients have something that may not work from a builder’s perspective, we will make it work with something as close as possible to what they want.”

At Newenham, we don’t compromise on quality or sustainability, and we don’t think you should have to in your home either. With Shire Homes, you can achieve  a high quality build, with top of the range sustainable building practices and enhancements. Their 15 years of experience has led the Shire team to have an exceptional collection of contractors on offer to deliver the best heating, cooling and design elements to match your Hill’s lifestyle.

“Our homes are really built around longevity. Our homes here at Newenham will have a solar hot water service and double glazed UPVC windows – it’s what’s used all throughout Europe and they’re incredible.”

With this gorgeous Design Village home on the way, you can see just what magic Shane and the Shire team are capable of and if they’re the builders for your new Hills home.
