New Home Design

Now that you’ve decided to build your new home in Melbourne, there are many decisions to make:

  • Do I choose a project home, or a custom designed home?
  • Should my home be single storey or double storey?
  • How many bathrooms and bedrooms?
  • How much outdoor area, and what style of garden do I want?
  • Do I want a butlers pantry or an outdoor kitchen?
  • What if I have an extra-wide or narrow block?

As one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make, we think a new home is too important to be chosen from a catalogue, it should be custom designed to suit your family lifestyle. However, with a colossal range of building materials and designs to choose from, and new innovations frequently entering the market, designing a custom home is an overwhelming task without an experienced guide.

Sherbrooke Design and Construction have almost 30 years of experience designing custom homes in Melbourne. We start with your needs and desires, and use our knowledge to design a home that meets these as closely as possible. We provide expert advice on the latest products, materials and designs to hit the market, which will make your decisions far easier and potentially save substantial amount of money, or headaches during the construction stage.

Our expertise also gives us the confidence to provide you with one of Melbourne’s strongest list of home builder guarantees.

Period features and modern design in Surrey Hills

Surrey Hills, VIC

We had lived in the original house for 16 years, loved the area but needed more bedrooms and more open living space. Our draftsman put us on to Sherbrooke and we were impressed by the quality of their work. When the renovation of our old home commenced and problems with the frame were discovered Sherbrooke were really helpful, developing our plans for a new home quickly. Once the renovation was under way our Project Supervisor was great and all of the tradesmen were very professional and always friendly. We would recommend Sherbrooke to family and friends.

Hawthorn renovation and extension

Hawthorn, VIC

Our land space was ideal for development and we loved the area. We had looked at moving, but weighed up the cost and it made more sense to invest money in our existing house and get exactly what we wanted. We liked the idea that Sherbrooke was a one-stop shop offering architect design, construction and complete project management services. During the building phase Sherbooke’s supervisor kept us informed at every stage of the project about what was happening next. We are extremely happy with the end result and would recommend Sherbrooke to family and friends.

Sherbrooke have turned this somewhat dated grand Victorian into the beauty it is today. Whilst still retaining its warm charm they have integrated a complete modern wing to the rear of what was formerly an outdated 1970’s living zone. Some improvements were made to the original Kew home by building a new verandah to the entry and relaying and polishing the floorboards. The major transformation however can be seen in the seamless integration of a modern and contemporary open plan entertainment area, and second floor parent’s master bedroom and retreat.

Upon inspection of the site it was easy to see why the entire design for this Williamstown home was a contemporary interpretation evolving from maritime history in the midst of the serene bayside suburb of Williamstown.

It was paramount to our clients that the design embraced and captured the amazing continuous panoramic views from the Westgate Bridge, to the eastern side of the CBD and to the bayside suburbs of St.Kilda and beyond.
