House and Land

House and Land

Starting out on your journey to own and live in your own home or own your first investment property? A house and land package is the easiest way to go.

A house and land package brings together a block of land and a house of your choice that fits that block. 

And with a fixed price, you can have the confidence that you can search within your budget and not spend more than you can afford.

Our most popular house and land packages are those from our Smart Living range. This range has been designed in consultation with leading land developers to give you an even better house and land outcome at a price that won't break the bank.

Getting started

Knowing what is ahead makes it easier to take that brave, bold step and build a new house.  We have simplified the process of buying a House & Land package into three easy steps, so you can get on with living the dream life you had in mind.   

1. Talk to Choice Home Loans

Before embarking on the process of falling in love with where you want to live, and finding the house that fits your dream life, understanding your finance options is critical.  Choice Home Loans will assist you in this first critical step.

2. Choose where to live

Where you live is as important as which house you build.  Fortunately Porter Davis build in every quality estate across the East, West and North of Melbourne, as well as Ballarat, Geelong and Warragul regions.  

3. Select your House & Land package

Take the worry out of your decision making.  Our packages are 100% fixed price and offer a complete turn key solution (that means you can move in and start living!)

That's one, two, three, so easy to make your dream a reality.

The Process

Once you have chosen your House & Land package, it's pretty simple from here on in.  You have all the certainty of a 100% fixed price House & Land package with complete turnkey solution. 

Be inspired

One of the best bits about building a new house is exploring the dream life you had in mind and seeing it start to take form. Use the Porter Davis website to shortlist and favourite houses, House & Land packages, options, facades and styles that inspire you. And then it is time to visit our display homes to see and experience our houses. Feel free to ask your consultant for a design tour to discover the inside story on design, style and function of your favourite houses.

Make your decision

Where possible, your consultant will visit your block and discuss the possibilities. We will provide you with a siting of your chosen house on your land. After a detailed discussion on exactly what you want in your new house we will provide you with a quote that is valid for 30 days. We will also ensure that any developer guidelines are factored into your quote, and ensure compliance with government and environmental regulations.

When you are ready, it is time to make your decision and pay your deposit.

Once your deposit is paid we will do a soil test and site survey to assess the site specific costs to build your new house. Your quote and site costs will form the basis of your tender documentation and preliminary drawings.

Choose your style & finishes

Now it is up to you to make your new house fit your personality! With over 64 interior ‘World of Style’ options, you will be able to personalise your home knowing that the best interior designers are behind your choices. From New York to British Virgin Islands and the Greek Islands to California there is a style that will bring your personality to life in your new home.

At World of Style, our Interior Designers will help you make choices in line with your budget and style preferences. And our specialist Electrical Consultant will give you expert advice on electrical, lighting, audio visual and security systems.

Contract signing

By contract signing stage you will have done all the ‘hard work’ and your contract is the formalisation of all your decisions so far. Along with a standard HIA (Housing Industry Association) contract you will receive the working drawings for your new house. Giving Porter Davis the go ahead now will mean we start preparing for your site start including any applications for permits and approvals.

At this stage you will be given the direct contact numbers of your Building Coordinator and Site Supervisor who will be overseeing the construction of your new hous.

Site start & build

It is now time for your house to be built! Behind the scenes all the necessary materials will be ordered to meet your guaranteed site start date. The first major milestone in the building of your house will be the pouring of your slab, followed by frame, lock up (including brickwork, roofing, plumbing and electrical), fixing (including plaster, kitchen and bathroom fitouts) and then practical completion where the finishing touches are put on your new house. Along the way independent building inspections are completed with a certificate provided to you are handover.

Move on in

And now for the most exciting bit of all! This is where your big bold dreams really come to life and you make your new house into your home. It is yours to live in and enjoy.

To make the transition as smooth as possible, your Building Coordinator will provide you with a detailed handover manual that tells you about how to care for your new home including the appliances and fixtures.


In addition to a the Independent Quality Inspection certificate and a seven year structural warranty, Porter Davis offer a three month New Home Inspection to give you further peace of mind. So you find any small issues with your new home when you first move in you can relax knowing that these will be attended to as part of the New Home Inspection which is a standard offering with Porter Davis.
