The Blackburne name is synonymous with unparalleled quality and innovation.

Established in March 2003 by Paul Blackburne, Blackburne has grown to become one of the leading property companies in Perth.

Blackburne specialise in luxury property development, property management, sales and mortgage broking. The business has been built on a fanatical commitment to understanding and exceeding our clients needs when buying, selling or managing property.

For the past two decades Blackburne have shaped the next generation of housing in Western Australia, with a focus on landmark developments in Perth’s prestigious western suburbs.

We are visionaries in couture living, creating world-class vertical cities and reimagining the urban landscape.

Our powerful combination of property intelligence and service excellence has seen our business steadily evolve to bring together a remarkable team of specialists, each an expert in a key aspect of property.

Our futurist approach rests on our ability to balance the trends of today with the demands of the future, and we’re proud stewards of biodiversity and sustainability. We take global ideas and inject local flavour, creating environments people want to live in before they even know it themselves, building homes with eternity in mind.

Our Legacy

Sustainability

We create homes with eternity in mind.

Our projects seamlessly combine unparalleled luxury with innovative sustainability, future-proofing lifestyles for decades to come.

Landscape & Ecology

Our sustainable landscape and ecology practices have added more plants and trees to our sites than there was initially. Our incorporation of green roofs, landscape deck areas and botanical parklands with use of native flora promotes the preservation of biodiversity.

Solar Power

Our projects generate electricity through solar panels which reduces the reliance on fossil fuels and decreases the carbon footprint. Solar power is a clean, renewable energy source that does not produce greenhouse gasses or air pollution. By generating electricity on-site, our developments reduce its dependence on the traditional grid and become more energy independent.

Energy Efficiency

Our projects incorporate double glazing and careful shade studies to promote energy-efficiencies by reducing heat gain in the summer and permitting solar penetration in the winter. This reduction in the energy consumption can  help to lower energy costs and improve the overall sustainability of the building.

Transport

Our projects are strategically located in proximity to major transport routes, public transport links and lifestyle hubs. This  promotes reduced dependence on cars, thus reducing greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution and traffic congestion.

Health & Well-being

Our generous resort-style amenities space promotes health and well-being for the mind, body and soul. From resort pools and thermal bathhouses to mindfulness studios, our projects are designed for nurturing a balanced lifestyle.

 

Our clients are our greatest advocates and we want you to be rewarded for your loyalty and appreciation should you refer friends and family to buy a brand new Blackburne apartment.
