FAQs about Luxury Homes in Melbourne
How Do I Choose My Luxury Home?
The beautiful thing about designing and building a custom luxury home is that you build a home suited to your lifestyle, wants and needs. So while you’re thinking about building your home, ask yourself what you want out of the project. This part is much the same as choosing to purchase a home.
What house would you want to buy? You would of course want a house that’s suited to the size of your family and that has ample space for anyone living there. If children are a consideration, what elements of a house would most benefit them? A playspace for entertaining them as well as a separate space from the parent’s area can be a great way to give children freedom while keeping the noise down in your entertaining areas. If you’re building a home, are you planning on buying new furniture to suit your home or bringing what you already have? This can help shape the layout of the home you wish to inhabit. Then there are your hobbies. What do you and your family love to do? Can these hobbies be incorporated into your living space? Think studios, cinemas, swimming pools and entertaining spaces. What are the features of your home that will have you counting down the moments until you get to enjoy them? Asking yourself questions in this manner will help you get creative and maybe think of elements that you might not have considered before.
What Should a Luxury Home Have?
A luxury home should be custom designed and built by experienced luxury home builders. Ideally, your luxury home should be located in a desirable neighbourhood and have all the high-end finishes and features that discerning buyers expect. Some of the must-haves in a luxury home include a gourmet kitchen, custom cabinetry, top-of-the-line appliances, a master retreat, hardwood floors, and plenty of storage space. In addition, a luxury home should have a spacious layout with plenty of room for entertaining. You can also look for homes that offer special amenities like a home theatre, wine cellar, or outdoor living space. With so many features to consider, it’s important to work with a team of experienced professionals who can help you create the perfect luxury home.
With Sherbrooke Design and Construction, you can be assured that your dream is achievable and in good hands with the most creative luxury house builders in Melbourne.
How to choose the best luxury home builder in Melbourne?
To build your dream home, choose a custom luxury home builder that you can trust. With so many choices out there, it can be difficult to know where to start. A good idea is to look at their past projects to understand their sense of aesthetics and quality.
- Do your research. Look for custom luxury home builders that have a good reputation and are known for their quality workmanship. Sherbrooke Design and Construction has been designing and building custom luxury homes for over 30 years.
- Make sure they offer the services you need. Not all custom luxury home builders are created equal. Some may specialise in certain types of homes, while others may offer a more comprehensive range of services.
- Get in touch. Once you’ve narrowed down your options, get in touch with us to discuss your luxury custom home. This will give you an idea of a ballpark range for your project along with the value we can offer.
- Have a consultation. Once you’ve chosen the custom luxury home builder that you’re interested in working with, schedule consultations with the team. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions, discuss your vision for your home, and get to know us better.
- Trust your gut. After meeting with various custom luxury home builders, you should have a good sense if we are the right fit for you. Trust your instincts and leave the rest to us.
Building your dream home is a beautiful process, and by taking the time to choose the right custom luxury home builder, you can ensure that it’s a success from start to finish. That is what we guarantee at Sherbrooke Design and Construction: thoughtfulness, consideration, and an exciting result.
Should I Buy or Build a Luxury Home?
There are a few key considerations to keep in mind when deciding whether to buy or build a custom luxury home. One of the main factors is cost. While building a custom home can be more expensive than purchasing an existing one, especially if you want high-end finishes and materials, you can be in control of what you spend more or less on. On the other hand, buying a house might require you to make some compromises or often result in unwanted surprises that are discovered after living there. Even though the construction process can be lengthy, Sherbrooke Design and Construction offers fixed time contracts so that you have a reasonable timeline laid out for the design of your luxury home. While it is more convenient and quick to buy a house instead of building one, the trade-off, however, is that you’ll be able to create a truly unique space that perfectly reflects your personal style. If you’re interested in exploring the world of custom luxury homes, reach out to have Sherbrooke as your luxury home designers in Melbourne.
How Big Should My Luxury Home Be?
It’s a common belief among homeowners that size matters above all else and that bigger is always better. Neither of these beliefs are entirely true. To begin with, a luxury home is defined by many other factors beyond simply the square metre coverage of the property. It’s not just a large home, it’s a well-designed and appointed home with high-quality materials and finishings.
As far as size is concerned, your home only has to be as big as it needs to be to accommodate all of your living requirements, yet it also needs to accommodate future plans. Family size, as well as outdoor amenities like swimming pools, spas and saunas, are all going to be key factors in deciding the size of your custom home. Building a new house just to have to extend or renovate it in years to come would be frustrating and expensive. After considering all of that, it can be whatever size you like!
What is considered a high end finish in a home?
Luxury homes are truly a canvas to fill with artistic high end finishes. Our design team at Sherbrooke Design and Construction ensures that your custom luxury home is designed and built precisely according to your taste. There are many high end finishes that you may choose to add to your home, and many that our designers will propose during the planning process, but some of the most common high end finishes include utilising premium materials to produce neat, classy amenities.
- Granite is one of the most popular materials used to design high end kitchen countertops that are durable, easy to clean, and instantly add luxe.
- Marble, even though tricky to work with, is an excellent choice for premium finishes for houses. Design your kitchen with marble or turn your staircase into a marble dream.
- You can not go wrong with glass. Textured or sleek, glass can be easily crafted to provide exactly the output you desire. From bathrooms to swimming pools and other amenities, glass adds a very delicate touch of luxury.
- Hardwood floors are an all-time favourite, especially for a modern appearance of luxury houses.
Of course, these finishes cover the main building elements of a luxury house, but adding luxurious designs like a pool, a library, or a home theatre can add to the grandeur of your custom home.
