Custom built

We create lifestyle ideas and options you may not have thought about.

Custom home builders

At Destination Living, every home is designed and built to match our clients’ personality and lifestyle. The other factor that influences the design and architecture is the type of site we’re working with.


Different build sites and lifestyle needs

We understand the challenges of working with difficult or challenging blocks which slope or are narrow with privacy issues. We help clients navigate these restrictions and turn them into opportunities through a custom design and build.

Narrow Blocks

Narrow or odd-shaped sites present a unique opportunity and a challenge when building custom homes, requiring specific skills, knowledge and expertise to navigate the design challenges and build the home that’s perfect for you.

Sloping Blocks

Some builders take a standard home design and try to fit it on a sloping block. Not Destination Living. We relish the opportunity to create a visionary home which captures its distinctive setting.

Difficult Blocks

Home sites come in all shapes and sizes. The benefits of these blocks often outweigh the challenges as long as your vision is approached intelligently.

Knock Down Rebuild

Often the best way to buy into or stay in the neighbourhood you want, is to knock down an outdated building and create a new home designed just for you.

Dual Occupancy

Create two properties often makes financial sense. It’s a common approach for owners to create another home on their land as a rental property or for sale while reimagining their current home or building a new one.
