Rebuild, Renew, Revitalise

Knock down rebuild has become the enthusiastic catchcry of new home buyers in many inner Melbourne suburbs where out-dated houses sit on valuable home sites.

Offering better value and greater certainty than often risky and expensive renovations, knock down rebuild can be an irresistible solution with the certainty of a brand new home for a fixed price with contemporary design, floor plan and finishes and integrated sustainability.

But like any major project, knock down rebuild can have potential hazards that you should be aware of, that is why we are working to inform prospective clients of both opportunities and pitfalls of knock down rebuild projects.

Comdain Homes has formed relationships with real estate agents to provide you with a Site Redevelopment Assessment (SRA), which provides site information and design suggestions for the block of land you find in the suburb you love. Comdain Homes can provide you with a SRA for desirable sites that come up for sale, as well as helping you identify and purchase sites. 

The SRA features a site plan with design opportunities referencing the site’s planning requirements, orientation, slope, adjoining properties and vegetation. It contains notes on what size house the site can accommodate in single or double storey and how to bring northern light into rear living areas.

With a renovation you are restricted by the style and floorplan of your existing house whereas a well-designed custom built luxury home can optimise its orientation and have a highly liveable and contemporary floor plan. It will be comfortable thanks to excellent insulation, performance glazing and heating and cooling and will utilise the latest materials and finishes for design and sustainability therefore reducing your running costs as well as being beautiful to look at.  And importantly, you will pay a fixed price.

Because so many people regularly contact us for advice, we’re planning regular seminars for buyers interested in looking at knock down and luxury rebuild. Please go to our FREE Seminars page to find out more.
