ENHANCING YOUR HOME
Real Living at Rawson begins with luxurious inclusions that offer real value. Our stunning range of LUX inclusions (which other builders call extras!) are what make your Rawson home your own. It’s the little things like the attention to detail in an inspiring selection of contemporary finishes and colours. It’s the big things too, like giving you much more choice in must-have items that provide the wow factor such as cooktops, benchtops and baths. Thanks to our partnership with leading industry brands, it’s all the things you want to live your dream lifestyle.
LUX. QUALITY AND CHOICE AT ITS LUXURIOUS BEST. MORE LUXURY INCLUSIONS
In 1978, we were a small family business of three. It was during this time that we made a promise to our customers – to build honest, lasting homes, with the service and value to match. After 38 years, we’re proud to say we’ve kept it. In fact, it’s this philosophy that’s turned us into one of NSW and ACT’s leading home builders. Building on this promise we now offer our customers more inclusions than you would normally expect. That means quality features, and more of them – each helping to transform your new house into a home. We’re excited about this exclusive list, because they’re the kind of inclusions that you won’t find anywhere else. The kind that other home builders overlook or often tack on at the end. Unlike the others, you can feel confident that we’ve got everything you need already covered here. Even better, you can rely on us for real quality, service and price. They’re what we’re known for – the things that make a real difference to people like you.
