The Plunkett Story

Plunkett Homes was established in WA in 1903 and has been proudly building homes for Western Australians ever since.

As you can imagine, we’ve learnt a thing or two in those hundred-odd years, like how to build homes that work perfectly for the way you live today, and how you’ll live in the future. 

Homes that can change with you as your circumstances change. 

Speaking of change, we’ve seen a lot of that in Perth over the years as we helped shape suburbs like Scarborough, Highgate, Bull Creek, Ardross, Wanneroo, Como and Dianella.

Wherever you find growth, you’ll find Plunkett. From Yanchep to Baldivis and everywhere in between.

But don’t pigeonhole us to the Perth Metropolitan sprawl, we also have local teams, suppliers and offices throughout Regional WA including the Mid West, South West and Great Southern Regions.

Browse through our vast range of products including country homes, Hampton’s homes, single and double storey homes, and unit developments, or have one of our experienced team custom design a home perfectly suited to your needs.

It doesn’t matter if you’re upsizing, upgrading, downsizing, developing or building an investment property, you can count on Plunkett Homes to deliver.

We’ve been doing it for more than 120 years.
