[The Oswald story]

When Julian Walter bought Oswald Homes on a handshake in 1972, he knew he had the makings of something special. How right he was. Over the years, the Oswald name has become synonymous with homes of great beauty and exceptional craftsmanship; a premier homebuilder with meticulous attention to detail and impeccable style.

Today, son Jay and daughter Alicia are the Oswald guardians, upholding the time-honoured Oswald values while designing and building bespoke residences for a new generation of homeowners demanding nothing but the best.
