Having decided the time is right to build a new home, the next step is to choose a design. Many project home builders offer online virtual tours of their most popular designs and this is an extremely useful tool but you can’t beat the “try it on for size” experience that a visit to a display home affords. We talk to some of this country’s leading home builders and garner their advice on how to maximise your visit to a display home and why they recommend the “try before you buy” approach. A growing number of those building a new home are embarking on a knockdown-rebuild project. This involves demolishing an old, dated or poorly designed home and building in its place a home that maximises the potential of the site…

in with the new

It’s a simple concept. You knock down a dated or rundown dwelling and build in its place a brand new home. Generally speaking, knockdown-rebuild (KDR) projects fall into one of three common scenarios. The first is knocking down a too-small family home in favour of building something bigger with a better floor plan and all the mod cons — this means you don’t have to move from a location you love. The second is finding an outmoded home on a prime block of land and building a modern family home in its place. The third? Demolishing an old, single-family home in a high-growth area and constructing a duplex, either to live in or as an investment. “The knockdown-rebuild market is definitely growing,” says Nathan Klein, Sales Manager, McDonald Jones Homes. “New estates…

Looking at photos of beautifully styled homes in magazines and browsing home builders’ online design galleries is an important first step when choosing a home design. It shows you what’s on-trend, what kind of inclusions you can have, helps you refine your list of must-haves, and gives you an opportunity to decide what style of home most appeals. Websites are a valuable resource, no doubt. They provide all the floor plan options for the home designs that take your fancy and in some cases, you can even take a virtual tour of your favourite display homes. However, there is no substitute for walking around a display home and trying it on for size — and the more display homes you visit, the better you’ll be able to compare and contrast designs,…

honouring nature

A supremely stylish enclave of 38 boutique SHAWOOD terrace homes, Ravenwood is an award-winning development nestled within The Hermitage at Gledswood Hills, a premier 320-hectare masterplanned community set among rolling green hills and scenic open spaces, just 55km from Sydney’s CBD.

this is the life

When designing the Piper 27, Trend Connection Homes wanted to ensure it catered to the way the modern family lives today, but also how they will be living as the children grow and their lifestyle needs change. Offering restful spaces and an open, easy-flowing floor plan, the home has multiple living areas that are perfect for a growing family. The Piper 27 also makes a strong first impression. “Walking through the 1200mm front door, you are immediately enveloped by a feeling of warmth and a sense of calm due to the timber-look floor tiles and classic striped wallpaper that continues through to the living area,” says Joanne Zomaya, Trend Connection’s Interior Decorator. “The front of the home offers a private bedroom for the parents, with a large walk-in robe with an abundance…
