Knockdown Rebuild Melbourne
Victorian Extension Design (VED) is located in Hawthorn East and we focus on the inner suburbs of Melbourne. These areas are in high demand for knock down and rebuilds.And we have completed many projects of this kind for local clients. Our clients either purchase an existing older home with a knock down rebuild in mind. Or they decide building from scratch in their preferred neighbourhood location.
We often hear similar concerns from our clients regarding the cost of knock down rebuilds due to demolition needs of the old property. Demolition costs are really not prohibitive and quite small in the overall cost. Building from scratch brings many benefits such as;
- Energy efficient building materials and design
- Lower cost than renovation/extension per square metre
- Less risk than renovation/extension (not dealing with unknown existing building issues)
- Stay in the same neighborhood
- Increase value of your property
- Get the features and finishes you want
- Design home of your dreams on your own land
- Match neighbourhood character
- Improved site access for a quicker build
Another reason you may opt for a knock down rebuild is that a renovation is just not suited to the existing home and land. It might be the floor plan is restrictive to any renovations or the site layout is just not suitable. A knock down rebuild means our design team and architect can design a home to maximise the site’s orientation and optimise space in your new build.
