Homestead Homes latest knock down rebuild project in Douglas St, St Ives is on track, with rendering underway. Once the upper floor is rendered and painted, the scaffolding can be removed to allow the ground floor to be rendered and painted.

Rendering provides a colourful alternative to the look of a standard brick wall, and allows a home owner or investor to create visual interest by using different finishes on different parts of the house.

The Douglas St owners are building for investment purposes, so it’s important the house has a high quality finish that fits well with other homes in the street and maintains it’s resale value. Rendering offers a wide selection of colours and only requires re-painting every 10-15 years, so is relatively low maintenance.

The two storey, five bedroom custom built home in Douglas St is ideally located for growing families, being close to schools, parks and with easy access to Mona Vale Road. The Upper North Shore is ideal for knock down rebuild, with large blocks giving plenty of opportunity to design a custom built home with pool and backyard, or even a tennis court.

As custom home builders, Homestead Homes can design and build your family’s dream home or investment property. We specialise in knock down rebuild, and can build on your existing block or a new home site.
