Project Overview:

Nestled in the prestigious location of Toorak, Victoria, the knock down rebuild project at 3 Bellaire Court stands as a shining example of meticulous planning, efficient execution, and outstanding financial success. Commissioned by Mark and Cheryl and completed in 2020, the project aimed not only to create a contemporary Australian-style residence but also to yield a lucrative return on investment through savvy development and resale strategies.

Client Engagement:

Our firm’s selection for this endeavor was rooted in a longstanding relationship built on trust, reliability, and a shared commitment to excellence. Mark and Cheryl entrusted us with their vision based on our proven track record in delivering superior results. Their desire for an expansive 800 square meter dwelling on a modest 586 square meter site posed a challenge that we eagerly embraced, confident in our ability to exceed expectations.

Project Scope:

The scope of the project was ambitious yet clear: demolish the existing structure to make way for a modern, multi-story residence that maximized the site’s potential. With a basement, ground floor, and first floor planned, the design seamlessly blended contemporary aesthetics with the timeless elegance synonymous with Toorak’s prestigious landscape.

Challenges and Solutions:

Navigating the intricacies of maximising buildable space on a constrained site required innovative solutions and meticulous planning. By leveraging our expertise in design optimisation and regulatory compliance, we overcame challenges seamlessly, ensuring every aspect of the project aligned with the client’s vision and financial objectives.

Execution and Exceptional Returns:

With unwavering dedication and a relentless pursuit of excellence, our team embarked on the journey to transform the client’s vision into reality. From co-ordinating subcontractors to managing budgets and timelines, every aspect of the project was meticulously overseen to ensure optimal results. As a result, the financial return from selling the development greatly exceeded Mark and Cheryl’ expectations, showcasing the effectiveness of our strategic approach and commitment to delivering exceptional outcomes.

Client Satisfaction:

Throughout the project, maintaining open lines of communication and prioritising client satisfaction remained paramount. By incorporating the clients’ feedback and preferences into every decision, we fostered a collaborative environment that ensured the outcome exceeded expectations. Mark and Cheryl were thrilled with the exceptional financial return, expressing their gratitude for our unwavering dedication and exceptional service.
