This Lane Cove duplex was completed by Homestead Homes in early 2013, and the satisfied owners are now enjoying their luxury home as well as earning an income from their investment property next door.

The three storey Alpha Road duplex was custom designed by the owner’s architect, and is located close to schools, shops and with easy access to Longueville Road. Both dwelling are substantially larger than an average duplex, with one home having five bedroom plus study and the other home having four bedrooms plus study. Each home has a double garage and a substantial courtyard, with the owner’s home also including a pool.

The block, whilst larger than an average home site, was relatively steep, with a slope of 2 ½ -3 metres from back to front. The site required significant excavation to remove rock to accommodate the garages for both homes.

Once the brickwork was completed, the duplexes were rendered in contrasting shades, giving the owners a greater choice of colours and creating a more modern finish than plain brickwork.

If your old house no longer meets your family’s needs, consider the benefits of knock down rebuild on your existing home site. Homestead Homes are custom designers and home builders. We can design and build your family’s new dream home based on your wishlist, or work with your architect to make your ideas a reality. If your block is large enough, Homestead Homes can even design and build your home and investment property on your current block. You get a modern family home in your existing neighbourhood, plus an investment property to rent or sell.

Our free Knock Down Rebuild report explains the benefits of undertaking a knock down rebuild on your existing home site. To see the quality of Homestead Homes’ construction for yourself, visit our display homes or phone us on 02 9629 5199.
