Knockdown Rebuild

Build the home of your dreams without moving

As your life changes, your needs change too. Sooner or later the house you fell in love with simply doesn’t suit your lifestyle anymore. So what do you do? Renovate? Or buy an established home that still doesn’t quite suit your every need?

What if you could build your dream home in the suburb you already love? Keep the view you love, the address you know, the local amenities you enjoy and your friendly neighbours. Simply replace your place with the kind of home you and your family really need, want and deserve, with a knockdown rebuild. 

Clarendon can assist you along the way, from finding the most suitable design for your block of land, right through the build to the handover of keys to your new home. 

Find the home of your dreams with Clarendon’s extensive range of single storey and double storey floor plans and facades that are sensitive to neighbourhood character, maximise narrow city lots or embrace beautiful beachside living.

So if you love where you live and don't want to settle for second best, a knockdown rebuild with Clarendon Homes is the perfect option for you.

At Clarendon Homes, your dream to achieve a superior and luxurious standard of living in your next knockdown rebuild is within reach. Enjoy choosing between our range of inclusions to suit your style and budget and take your home to the next level. 

Finding your dream home is made easier with our beautiful display homes spread right across South East Queensland. From as far as the Sunshine Coast, to just south of Brisbane, out to Ipswich in the West and even down to the sunny Gold Coast, we've got Brisbane and its surrounding regions covered. Visit your local display village and chat to one of our friendly consultants.

A design that creates a paradise and delivers luxury, convenience and ease, the Lilyfield provides spaces and areas to relax, unwind and just be.

A relaxed home-life is made much easier in a design with large living spaces for the whole family to spread out. The Bayside may be one of our best designs for such a lifestyle. With a very generous open area that combines the family, kitchen, meals and alfresco, there is plenty of breathing space to entertain the biggest of families. But it is the smaller details that truly assist in creating an easy life, such as direct access from the garage to the walk-in-pantry for easy unloading of the groceries from the car. The Bayside is a smart design that gives you more time to do better things.

The Brookwater is the perfect antidote for a busy lifestyle, with comfortable spaces that allow you to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. The master bedroom welcomes the light, so you can lay in bed and enjoy the warmth of the morning sun. The kids will enjoy the wide-open spaces surrounding the kitchen, where they can play indoors or head outside to the secluded alfresco area. An additional living area at the front of the home is perfect for a formal lounge, while the upstairs rumpus can contain the often messy world of the kids and their games. It’s a home that helps you embrace a slower, simpler, happier lifestyle.

A home is a reflection of its family. The Samford is designed to reflect the full-speed life of a family on the move. A rumpus room that adjoins the secondary bedrooms gives the kids somewhere to study or play, separate from the other living areas. The main living areas are open and connected to the outside alfresco space, perfect for when the family comes together or when guests come around. And your very own parents retreat is situated at the rear of the home for complete privacy. Your family deserves a home that is designed to support them when they are moving with space to relax and unwind together at the end of the day.

Frequently asked questions

What is a knockdown rebuild?

As the name suggests, a knock down rebuild involves pulling down your existing house and then reusing the land to build a brand new home that suits your family’s needs better.  

What are the benefits of a knockdown rebuild?

Remaining in the same neighbourhood you love and keeping the address you know is one of the great benefits of a knockdown rebuild. A knockdown rebuild also means you can build the exact home your growing family needs, and include any extra bedrooms or living areas to suit your lifestyle. Last but not least, when you knockdown an old house and build a brand new home, you can make sure the home fits within your budget and avoid any budget blowouts from nasty surprises.

Does Clarendon Homes offer a knockdown rebuild service?

Yes, we do! Being 100% Australian owned and offering a lifetime structural guarantee, Clarendon Homes is your trusted knockdown rebuild partner with over 44+ years of experience.

Does Clarendon Homes arrange the demolition of my house?

Clarendon Homes can recommend a great local house demolition service with competitive rates and high-quality service. 

Does Clarendon Homes have any designs that fit a 10m wide block?

Yes, we have a stunning range of home designs that fit on a 10m+ wide block. These beautiful designs include the sophisticated Hawthorne 310 and the modern Lilyfield 320 MKII, which is on display at Rochedale Arise

How much will a demolition cost?

In Australia, the average price tag for a house demolition is approximately $25,000 and varies due to factors such as  the size of the home, the materials of the house, foundation removal, how accessible your site is and whether there are any hazardous building materials such as asbestos or mould present. Typically, you can expect to pay around $60 - $80 per square metre for a house demolition and removal of materials.

How do you finance a knockdown rebuild?

Generally, most people decide to finance a knockdown rebuild with a construction loan that’s tied to a building contract. This type of loan has been formed to supply finance in a way that matches the milestone and payment requirements during the construction process. We recommend consulting your local mortgage broker for the best option for you.
