Buy to knock down, instead of compromising

There is a lot to consider when looking for a new home. Not only is the location important, there’s also the room configuration and style to consider. With so many different homes available to buy, it can be overwhelming; what do you need and what can you compromise on. Every family has different requirements and for many, the home they are looking for may not exist.

This is the experience for our clients in Riverview.  They spent a long time looking for a home to buy on the lower north shore. At the time, there were plenty of older homes on the market, however they were struggling to find something contemporary to suit their personal style. They wanted to capture as much natural light as possible and have areas for the children to play both inside and out.

They realised to get the perfect home they needed to find a block of land they loved, knock down an old house and build a custom home.

Old home before knockdown rebuild

In most circumstances, a knock down rebuild is cheaper than renovating an old home.  A renovation can have limitations as there are often structural changes that can’t be made, and old services such as sewer, water and electricity which are not generally replaced.

Making the decision to undertake a knock down rebuild with Allura gave our clients a fresh perspective when looking at homes. The family found the right sized block of land in Riverview, a location that suited them, and with Allura they designed and built a custom home, which included space for everyone, and lots of unique features that made the layout perfect for their lifestyle.
