Build The Home of your dreams without moving

Simply replace your place with the kind of home you and your family really need, want and deserve, with a knockdown rebuild.

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.

Before After

Featured Designs

Lilyfield 34 MKII

4 2.5 3 2

Fits perfectly on a 10m+ lot width.

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 large open plan family, meals and kitchen area on the ground floor creates movement and connection throughout the home, while upstairs the master suite sits alone like an exclusive private island getaway, accessed only by a bridge-like mezzanine. The extensive windows throughout ensure light floods every aspect of this home making every corner of the Lilyfield bright and positive. A truly modern design, this home delivers a modern retreat, for your modern family.

Bayside 39 MKII

5 2.5 4 2

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.

Boston 43

5 2.5 3 2

The Boston gives your family the space it needs to relax in comfort, with its large open-plan living, dining and kitchen that seamlessly connects to a beautiful alfresco area, and separate theatre, study and rumpus rooms. The butler's pantry will keep your kitchen tidy when you’re entertaining guests, with easy access from the garage for those big grocery trips.

Brookwater 33

4 2.5 4 2

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.

Fairmont 40

5 4 3 2

For families that need space to live, entertain and play, the Fairmont is the perfect design. The effortless open plan layout encompasses four different living areas centred on the kitchen, a true entertainer’s space. With careful delineation, the space is not cavernous but instead greets its inhabitants warmly to encourage conversation and enjoyment. A large master suite continues the grandeur while the additional guest bedroom ensures everyone has somewhere to stay. A home should be full of spaces that invite and comfort family and friends, that’s how it becomes a family favourite.

Samford 32

4 2 3 2

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.

Grande 57

5 4.5 4 2

Luxury living will never feel better than coming home to the Grande 57. This brand new home design was developed to provide a combination of both class and comfort for contemporary living. The Grande showcases a state of the art design, featuring striking columns throughout and an abundance of room to entertain in comfort. Dressed in our premium Maison facade, the Grande 57 is the ultimate home with French provincial elegance for contemporary living.

The Grande 57 design delivers on all fronts - a captivating home built for your whole family with formal and informal living space to relax and plenty of room to entertain in comfort. Classic designs don't date, yet a modern spin ensures everyone is satisfied. Enjoy the best of both words in this stunning home! 

Sherwood 43

5 2.5 4 2

No matter it’s size, a home designed with proper proportions should feel spacious yet warm and inviting - a grand balancing act that determines the atmosphere and comfort level of your home. The Sherwood delivers on this balancing act in spades — a grand, captivating and comfortable home for the entire family, complete with plenty of living space for family members to enjoy time together or quiet time alone, and space dedicated to entertaining in style and comfort. This is a classic design that won’t date. But it has a modern twist that ensures everyone in the family will be satisfied. Enjoy living comfortably in the Sherwood.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a knockdown rebuild?

As the name suggests, a knockdown 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 43+ 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 15 home designs that fit on a 10m+ wide block. These beautiful designs range from as little as $252,000 for a 22sqm home to a spacious 35 sqm home priced at $320,500. You can view two of these homes in person, the modern Lilyfield 34 MKII is on display at Rochedale Arise, and the sophisticated Hawthorne 33 is on display at our Capestone centre in Mango Hill.

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.
