That was certainly the ethos of a young professional couple with two young children, who were looking to build their forever home in Oatlands, near excellent schools and close to the offices of the family business. After doing their research, the owners selected Chateau Architects + Builders, based on their reputation and track record of winning industry awards.
The couples brief was to create a large Georgian style home, over three levels, that took full advantage of sites topography and orientation. Interiors were to be classical in styling, with modern features such as smart wiring and an internal lift. The room arrangements and orientation were to follow the Indian principles of Vastu/Feng Shui.
Chateau worked through various design options until a plan was developed that matched both the brief and budget. The team included architects, designers, quantity surveyors and master builders, with each discipline involved from the outset, allowing an accurate fixed price to be determined. Using a separate architect and builder can be difficult to manage, whereas this integrated process gave the client one contact point for the whole build and greater peace of mind.
The finished home is one of outstanding quality and the clients were thrilled with a house that’s as solid as a castle, but feels like a home; a home that’s designed just for them.
Located in Castle Hill, Chateau was established by Hills resident Malcolm McDonald. The company has been building prestige homes in the area for over 50 years, including homes suitable for both acreage and suburban blocks.
