Knock Down Rebuild starts with Demolition

Custom home builder, Homestead Homes, are starting construction of a new luxury family home in Oxley Avenue, St Ives. The quiet leafy street is popular with families seeking to knock down rebuild to create their ideal home, and is a comfortable walk to schools, parks and Mona Vale Road buses.

Demolition of the existing house is underway, and the family has retained the existing pool, which will be refurbished and accessed via the rear outdoor alfresco area.

Entry to the new luxury five-bedroom family home is through an expansive entrance hall and formal living area. The home office and powder room adjoin the entrance, and could also be used as a guest bedroom.

At the rear of the home, informal living and dining areas and an expansive rumpus room overlook the refurbished pool area.

The heart of the custom-designed home is the designer Caesarstone kitchen, complete with butler’s pantry and European appliances. The open plan kitchen adjoins the family living and dining areas, which in turn open to an extensive outdoor alfresco area. Designed with entertaining in mind, the north-facing alfresco area boasts a full Caesarstone outdoor kitchen, ideal for all-weather entertaining.

The home’s five generously-sized bedrooms are located upstairs, including the sumptuous master suite with luxurious en-suite and walk in wardrobe.

Established suburbs such as St Ives remain popular for families wanting to knock down rebuild to stay in their local area and get a brand new luxury home. Homestead Homes specializes in knock down rebuild construction, and has built several homes in the adjoining streets.
