Our Story

Creating one-of-a-kind homes, underpinned by creativity, craftsmanship and an unrivalled attention to detail…

Now one of Perth’s leading – and award-winning custom home builders, Averna Homes has come a long way since its humble inception in 2007. Averna has built a reputation on hard work and a passion for the building industry, along with creating one-of-a-kind homes underpinned by creativity, craftsmanship and an unrivalled attention to detail.

A far stretch from the large cookie-cutter building companies, Averna is a small family company that’s friendly and flexible, working closely with our clients and only building a limited number of luxury custom homes annually.

Averna Homes was created by builder Paul Serra, who’s passion for building was ignited as a teenager when he worked alongside his father as a tiler. This led to further building qualifications and the eventual formalisation of Averna, named after an Italian digestive liqueur, nearly a decade ago.

Averna Homes was crafted from a desire to build quality individual homes, with a focus on providing clients with a personal – and enjoyable – building experience.

“What I wanted to create was a bit of passion and love in building someone’s dream. When they build with Averna, they’re going to experience these feelings, the connection and love behind it, and be satisfied the same way they would with a good liqueur”. – Paul Serra
