Equis Lake at The Vines is a premium community nestled within one of Perth's most sought after suburbs. With the town of Ellenbrook only minutes away, and the bigger centres of Midland and Joondalup just a short drive away, Equis Lake is within easy reach of everything you'll need.
It's also the escape that can offer respite from hustle and bustle of modern life, designed as an intimate community with just 250 homesites and an abundance of natural beauty.
We bring sustainability into our communities right from the beginning. Each village is laid out to allow as many homes as possible to take advantage of a passive solar aspect.
Helpful Design Guidelines
Our design guidelines encourage new homeowners to adopt sustainable practices and ensure each house fits well with its neighbours and with the surrounding natural environment.
In keeping with the tranquil setting that sourrounds Equis lake, LWP has developed building guidelines that encourage design elements and finishes using earthy colours and materials such as timber and stone, as well as the use of local plants in garden designs.
Our design guidelines encourage new homeowners to adopt sustainable practices and ensure the whole neighbourhood is not only varied but is also beautiful and suited to the surrounding natural environment. That way, you get to live, work and play in a place that’s the best it can be.
Our guidelines also show how you can save money and the environment by adopting sustainable practices when you build, and when it comes time to set up your new home and garden.
