Townhouse Showhome

As a first for Sentinel Homes, we've built a town house as a showhome, although we build plenty of large family houses, many of our clients are building infil housing either on their existing property, or as a small subdivision. Come and see the quality and clever design ideas of a Sentinel town house show home!

Design & build Your dream home

The Sentinel Homes ‘Design and Build’ approach is about giving you a home that is unique to you and your family. Designed for how you live. No cookie cutter homes around here. We can approach your project in a couple of ways:

completely custom

If you’re looking for something completely custom, we’ll guide you through the design process from floor plans to finishings - the only limit is your imagination. Bring along your ideas and inspiration and work with our team to come up with something that is uniquely yours.

Start from an existing plan

Or, perhaps you’d prefer the inspiration of one of our many existing plans? This can be the springboard from which to design your dream home. All plans can be modified in any way to suit you. Extra bedroom? Easy. Larger kitchen and living? No problem. A home office or art studio? Consider it done.

With Sentinel Homes, no two houses are ever the same!

Find out what's possible!

Many clients are surprised at how many possibilities there are with their land.

Single home, 800m² sites have been transformed into 5, 6 or even 7 town houses, providing a whole portfolio of assets many people only dream of. Much larger sites can be split up into smaller sections for standalone new builds.

If you’re looking to maximise the potential of your site, or just want to help your children into the market by adding one or two more homes, our team is here to help.
