Tired of the same home but don’t want to move location? Or perhaps you have great neighbours, a favourite cafe or park nearby that you would hate to part ways with. If you love your current suburb and don’t want to renovate, a knockdown rebuild may be the best option for you.
A term we use for demolishing and rebuilding a home, a knockdown rebuild has the benefit of allowing you to remain in the same location while enjoying the benefits of a brand-new home. Plus, you can save on costs and there’s less hassle involved! Interested? We’ve put together our top 7 home designs for knockdown rebuilds in Australia to help you get started.
1. Waldorf Grange
First on the list is a home with free-flowing spaces that feel effortlessly luxurious. Combining the aesthetic aspects of the traditional Waldorf design with added extras to enhance family living, the Waldorf Grange is designed for all your home needs.
Central to the design is an expansive kitchen, dining and living area, with attached galley, store and laundry rooms. The master bedroom retreat sits on the first floor, while three guest bedrooms, all with ensuites, are located down the left-wing of the house.
The Astor is an ideal home design for demolishing and rebuilding a house, especially if you have a slightly narrower block. As you walk through you are greeted to a large open-plan kitchen, dining and family area, with a spectacular double-storey void that opens to an outdoor alfresco.
Upstairs, an oversized master bedroom sits to the front with two walk-in robes and a relaxing soaker tub – the ideal escape. Three secondary bedrooms, one with a walk-in-robe, all surround the communal rumpus area, a perfect area for the kids.
3. Plaza Grange
Known for ticking all the boxes — a generous, double-storey floorplan, large alfresco area and separate study — the Plaza Grange is an easy knock-down rebuild choice. Be welcomed home to a grand foyer with an impressive feature void, private study and home theatre. Leading into the entertainment area is a classic open-plan formal living, dining, kitchen and family area.
Upstairs to the rear, you’ll find the private large master bedroom, with a delightful master ensuite and expansive walk-in-robe. An uncompromising floorplan, the Plaza Grange features four deluxe bedrooms, each with an ensuite and WIR, and a dedicated games area for the kids.
4. Hyatt Grange
Everyone will feel at home in this high-class haven designed for multi-generational living. You’ll discover a luxurious void overlooking the entryway when you enter, and a master bedroom on the ground floor that offers the ultimate private escape.
A formal lounge, home theatre and games room upstairs inspires a feeling of togetherness, while a soaring void defines the magnificent open-plan space at the rear of the home. Natural light flows through the designer kitchen, while an outdoor alfresco invites the idea of indoor-outdoor living.
The Savoy has become one of our most popular designs for a knockdown and rebuild. An extravagant double-storey design, this Prestige home holds countless family zones, a soaring void, and clever storage solutions — all laid out to optimise natural light wherever possible.
Upstairs you’ll find four bedrooms, a central bathroom and huge games area that incorporates a children’s study area. The large master bedroom features a separate dressing room and private ensuite — a secluded retreat. With an amazing sense of light and space, the Savoy is an exceptional home for modern family living.
6. Mont Albert Grange
This is a home fit for royalty, offering family living at its very finest. It features five spacious bedrooms, four separate living spaces and a stunning void that brings space and light to the kitchen, dining and family areas.
Perfect for those who appreciate the best life has to offer, the expansive Mont Albert Grange is designed without compromise on elegance and luxury versus practicality. If you’re considering demolishing and rebuilding a house and want a grand and elegant home, the Mont Albert may be perfect for you.
7. Toorak Grange
It’s no surprise this is the biggest home on offer within our knock-down rebuild range. Feel immediately immersed in the grandeur with its high ceilings and walkway that peels into the open-plan kitchen and living area.
The kitchen includes a galley through to a walk-in pantry and island bench, with a second dining room for those who enjoy private dinner parties. An entertainer’s delight, a sprawling alfresco area connected by doors that seamlessly blend the indoors and outdoors.
The master bedroom is truly the hero of the home in this house. Located on the first floor, overlooking the street, you will feel like a king or queen of the palace in this private retreat with a walk-in-robe and master ensuite.
