Choosing a style for your new home

Have you decided that you want to build a new home, but just can’t find what you are after? Or maybe you are confused after looking through countless number of display homes. Freedom Homes have over 25 years experience building new custom designed homes in Newcastle, Port Stephens & the Hunter Region, so we can look after the design and construction of your home for you.

Our team can help you incorporate the ideas you have gathered along the way and help you design whatever style of home you want . Being a custom home builder, we can build you anything you like. Below are some ideas and a few images to get you started.

Country Style Homes

Freedom homes can build you a traditional country style cottage on a smaller block of land, or we can build you a large homestead if you have an acreage property. Country style homes are generally more suited to semi-rural and rural areas, however you can still create a new home with a country cottage feel in a well-established area if you are willing to knock down an existing home and rebuild.

Contemporary Homes

Contemporary style homes are always very popular.  A contemporary modern home is a smart choice if you are considering re-selling the home at a later date. The simple clean lines and neutral tones will appeal to a broader market. With a contemporary home you can easily update the home to add some extra character if need be.

We have designed many gorgeous contemporary modern homes for home owners throughout the Hunter Region.


Traditional Homes

Many home owners still love the traditional homes with sandstock bricks, timber windows, gable roof design and the addition of feature fretwork. This style of home is still popular in areas like Cessnock, Morpeth and East Maitland as it fits in with the existing homes in the area.

Ultra Modern Homes

Home owners in Port Stephens and beach side suburbs such as Merewether often want a unique modern design to suit their waterside location.  Modern designs are also very popular in new land estates throughout the Hunter Region.

Design & Selection Process

Whether you have every detail etched in your mind of what your new home will look like, or have no idea at all, it doesn’t matter. Our experienced design team will help you design your new home and can assist you with any product and colour selections.

We can design your home using a mix of light weight construction products as seen on many modern homes such as boards and cladding with an iron roof, or we can design you a traditional home constructed of brick and tile – the choice is yours.
