Making the most of your Site and Land


In the face of increasingly stringent regulatory controls, restrictive statutes and environmental protections, you need to work with an architect and builder that is perpared and experienced.

Working within governmental and environmental constraints, each new project represents a radical improvement in terms of style, quality, liveability, investment potential and environmental response. Councils recognise such improvement and with out forthright and cooporative response to local and state controls, we have an outstanding success rate for new approvals.

As each property is unique, so too must be the design of the home. Every 'Chateau' home is an original. We do not duplicate our designs and with this continuing policy will ensure your home remains unique. This is not only vitally important for the protection of your most valuable asset, but it is essential in optimising your site's potential. The result? A home that reflects your distinctive lifestyle, is comfortable and achieves design efficiency and value for money. Take a moment to review some of our recent projects and modern homes .

We are able to optimise the potential of any property be it steep, rocky, undrained, narrow, conserved, protected or bushfire-threatned. Our in-house architects identify each site's constraints and opportunities early in the design process, ensuring any anomaly or 'awkwardness' is seamlessly absorbed into the design of each home.

Whether it be the topography, flora, location, zoning, special conditions, easements, geography or other restrictions we are equipped to provide clear guidance. If you are unsure simply as to how best to develop your land, or you are concerned as to the development cost implications for a particular property for purchase, simply ask Chateau for an obligation free site consultation and development analysis.

A development Analysis by Chateau is brief, throrough and accurate. We will conduct an inspection of your property immediately upon request and at no cost. We will assess properties prior to purchase, and will liaise with agents to inspect tenated homes. This service has been offered for over 40 years and has proven invaluable for our potential and repeat customers.
