Award Winning

Hilstin were awarded the prestigious City of Port Phillip’s Design Development Award in the “Best New Single Dwelling or Alteration” category, for their alteration of this Park Road property in Middle Park.


  • Thank you Hilstin for making the most of the opportunity on this split-block. Designing and building a house on a dual-occupancy block can be challenging. The team at Hilstin managed to turn this challenge into not one, but two perfect houses. In addition, Lucas, was such a pleasure to work with. His attention to detail and pleasant professional manner instilled trust in the workmanship. We could not be happier. We highly recommend Hilstin as a builder of choice for your investment property or dual-occupancy.

  • Hilstin are a professional organisation in building custom homes and bring a personal hands-on approach in dealing with their customers. The workmanship and build quality of our new home was to an extremely high-standard and a lot of care was taken at every point to ensure that things were right before moving to the next stage. We are delighted with our new home and would recommend Hilstin as your next builder.

  • The service from the team at Hilstin was exceptional, you guided us through the process seamlessly and the home you delivered well exceeded our expectations, especially the attention to all the little details. We really appreciated working with boutique firm rather than a bulk-builder, having you there throughout the process and being able to talk directly with our architect and builder rather than a call-centre gave us real peace of mind.

  • After spending months looking at display homes we realised the only way we would be completely happy was to custom-designed our new home to our own unique specifications. Hilstin offered the perfect solution: full custom design flexibility, a very high level of build quality, high-end fittings and a hands-on, personal service at a very competitive price. Thanks Hilstin we couldn’t be happier.

  • My relationship with James dates back more than 3 years, from before I had even purchased my first block of land. Their service had been outstanding, on every project, from the very beginning through to the final delivery of high-quality properties. Since first meeting James, I had confidence that he would deliver everything I’d needed  in a building partner. He would listen to my ideas and incorporate them in the design or suggest alternatives when they wouldn’t work! With Hilstin my projects stay on track, hit budget and make the most of my investment potential.

  • It was a fantastic experience to go through the process of building our first home with Hilstin. With high recommendations from within the industry, they delivered everything we needed and their attention to detail was excellent. The ability to deal with James & Lucas personally made for such a smooth process and one that was enjoyable all the way through. Thanks Hilstin for delivering us a great home.

  • We have just moved into our beautiful home built by the Hilstin team here in Bayside. The house is absolutely perfect and we can't recommend Lucas & James highly enough. It has been a wonderful experience building with them. They were able to turn our limited budget into our perfect home and the whole process was genuinely stress free. We have been so happy with the whole team, the process and most of all the finished product!

  • We are absolutely delighted with our new home, and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Hilstin for anyone looking to build a new custom home of the highest quality. We look forward to many happy years enjoying our new lifestyle in our wonderful family home.

  • We had the pleasure of partnering up with Hilstin in the redesign and alteration of this award-winning heritage property in Middle Park. We were immediately impressed by the way the team combine a professional approach with practical solutions. They embraced several existing challenges during the renovation but their ability to listen and interpret design resulted in this stunning, beautiful property. We would like to take this chance to recommend Hilstin to any client or professional considering working with them.
