Circa 1860 onwards. Probably the most recognised and admired roofline from the Victorian era. The Victorian Traditional (also known as the Victorian Doublefront) is essentially two Victorian single fronts attached. 

High ceilings and a central hallway created the air-conditioning of the day - while verandahs shaded the home, central hallways acted as a breezeway, especially when that long awaited cool change finally arrived. French Doors feeding onto the shady verandahs added further functionality to the home.

Victorian Traditionals were built across Australian cities and towns from the most basic of cottages to the grand homes of the Goldrush era.


Another version of our traditional series is also a well recognised and admired roofline from the Victorian era. This charming design of home is one of the major pillars that we at Harkaway Homes have built our unique reputation upon. Our Gabled Victorian Traditional Series homes are word perfect reproductions of these true classics.

This style of home will fit snugly near a side fence displaying its gabled ends and return verandah or equally it will sit proud in the centre of acreage, making a powerful statement of its true heritage.

Tall walls, high ceilings, a central hallway, French doors and leadlight windows were the hallmarks of this classic Victorian design.

The Tatong Hotel in Northern Victoria and Lovey’s Restaurant in the Yarra Valley are both original  Pavilion Roofline designs.  Inspiration to recreate this classic actually came from watching Lovey’s being moved in sections to the Yarra Valley from its original birthplace at Wantirna in Victoria.

Ideally suited on acreage, our most popular design is yet another of the major pillars that Harkaway Homes has built its unique reputation and success upon.

Our number one selling product is represented across many states of the land with rarely a floor plan the same as the next.  The Pavilion Roofline Series displays all of the necessary character that sets it apart and adds to the claim of being Australia’s best country home.


Circa 1900 Federation homes were built across the nation in their thousands and many fine examples have survived to this day.

Recognised by their most distinctive steep angled bell roofline with a front and side return verandah, the Federation home also bragged boxed bay casement windows, timber friezes, feature entrances, French doors and large amounts of leadlight windows.

Interiors would have high ceilings, fancy cornices and a central hallway complimented by carved timber friezes.

Harkaway Homes “Fair Dinkum Federation" Series designs offer all of the true to character features mentioned above.

Carefully derived from our character filled Homestead Series, the Gabled Homestead Series features three gables and a portico front entrance to give an unmistakable appearance to this classic home.

Perfect symmetry adds to the design and is both practical to construct and cost effective to build.

High ceilings are complimented by rooms that enjoy full natural light given from the effect of having correctly positioned verandahs.

Harkaway Homes firmly believe in the integrity of design.  The look and profiles of the home are paramount. Floor plans although important, are secondary and can easily be tailored to suit within the confines of the design.


A magnificent home ideal to be positioned in the most perfect place.

Inspired by a bygone era when wealthy Squatters ruled all in Victoria's Western District and beyond.

The Victorian Homestead Series recreates that grand home "Nareen" like atmosphere of yesteryear.

Tall walls sweeping verandahs and magnificent symmetrical profiles present this home as our flagship design.

Ballrooms however are not compulsory and can be treated as optional.

Many thousands of homes with this roofline have been built over recent years, mainly in the hobby farm area. The fundamental problem they all share is that the wall heights/rooflines and hence verandah lines are set way too low, creating unattractive and very dark homes.

The solution is at hand. Harkaway Homes exclusive high wall system creates the absolutely necessary external wall height needed to successfully carry a verandah in the correct position.

Well positioned verandahs are a great benefit to a house, not only by extending the living areas, but also allowing in full natural light while protecting the interior of your home from the harsh sun and the elements.

Our Town and Country Homestead Series homes are not only practical, but we are sure you will agree they also look great.


Our Urban Pavilion Series authentic design is well suited to be placed on a small corner block in the inner city or beyond, having a rectangular footprint means the minimum use of block space. 

A character filled front facade includes timber window canopies with leadlight topped casement windows and a leadlight framed feature front door. 

Perfect symmetry is achieved with gables and a central portico entrance seated on the recessed front verandah. 

High ceilings with run cornices and panelled doors add further flavour to the home.

Our latest range, the Townhouse Series, was inspired by the local and historic Terrace Houses at 10-11 The Strand in Williamstown.   

They were constructed in 1881 and are original and rare examples of the two-storey terrace house.  They are notable for the coloured brick and the undivided duplex construction which is uncommon on a metropolitan basis.

Today however, our modern-day version of the two-storey Terrace House offers the perfect dual-occupancy solution for the larger blocks of land in our inner suburbs.
