Why build with Chateau Architects + Builders?

Our Homes Are Unique

Every family is unique, and your home should be too. We have been building quality homes for our clients since 1970 and every home has been custom designed, and master built.

The Process is Painless

From the outset your team includes qualified architects, designers, quantity surveyors, master home builders and a dedicated team of tradesman. Each discipline is involved in the design. This means:

  • efficiencies can be explored without compromising the design,
  • an accurate fixed price is determined from the start,
  • better project co-ordination, and
  • you have a single point of contact from start to finish.

Using a separate architect and builder can create uncertainties and be difficult to manage. Our integrated process means more peace of mind, as our clients testify:

"We always imagined that building a house would be a painful and stressful experience, particularly after hearing horror stories from many of our friends who had built new homes. Our experience with Chateau couldn't be further from this perception. They were simply remarkable."

- Kamel and Anvij (North Wahroonga House)

The Quality Will Be Uncompromising

Quality is not just about what you see - it's also about what you don't see. It's about care given to the design. It's about refusing to compromise. It's about communication during the build. Quality endures:

"We built with Chateau 10 years ago (2007) and are delighted with the terrific condition our home is in after that time."

- Steve and Leanne W. (Riverview House)

We Are Here to Stay

This year we turned 50 - and in today's tough times, 50 years in business is an achievement that tells you we are strong, solid and here to stay.

Having built hundreds of custom designed homes across Sydney, and received multiple industry awards, we have a proven record in delivering quality homes and a reputation we are proud of.

We Understand Family

Chateau is a family business, so we understand the importance of family. Established by Malcolm McDonald in 1970, sons Rod (Company Architect) and Alex (Director of Construction) continue their father's legacy of building prestige homes throughout Sydney.

"Alex looks after his clients and their projects as if building for family, this is the reason Chateau excels at what they do."

- Hoshi and Naomi (Kings Langley House)
