Chateau Architects + Builders have strong company values


The Early Beginnings of a Hills District Home Builder

The concept of Chateau Homes was first contemplated by Company Director Malcolm McDonald in November 1969 with the view to providing home buyers with a luxury, custom design alternative to project home building.

By April 1970 the company was registered in the name of Chateau Constructions, later to become 'Chateau Constructions (Aust.)  Limited' and in recent times the additional registration of 'Chateau Homes' and 'Chateau Developments'.

From Father to Son(s)

From humble beginnings in a small home office, Chateau has evolved under the continued directorship of Malcolm McDonald during its 50 years of operations.

Now, located in "Chateau House" in Castle Hill, Malcolm is joined by sons Rod (Director of Architecture) and Alex (Director of Construction), to carry on the legacy of design excellence and quality construction into the next generation.
