We were evaluating the work of several builders in the area and through word of mouth found Millbrook Homes. Initially a partial renovation was to be undertaken, however after several discussions with the company we decided a full renovation was best and very happy with that decision. We kept the foundation including frames and half the wood floor was kept, while the remainder was replaced. A visit to the showroom was a positive experience and from day one the team was excellent. The entire project was straight forward. Millbrook gave us confidence and added significant value during the build process, were prompt, experienced, and diligent. We ended up with our dream home which has also retained the character of the old dwelling. From the ground up, it is a quality build.
My wife's parents were building with Millbrook Homes and recommended them to us. My professional background is industrial design, hence I've always had a desire to design and build my own home on acreage at Kellyville. I designed our house around a number of features I'd seen in other homes. Millbrook Homes was appointed to build it. The home was designed with two wings, a bedroom wing and a living wing which included a theatre room, large 4.5m kitchen island bench and butler’s pantry. The design focused on maximising our bushland views with large windows providing maximum natural light and northerly facing windows enabling thermal heating in winter. We really liked the colour scheme of the Millbrook Homes display house and closely mirrored it using charcoal, greys and whites. They understood our brief, stuck to the budget, provided quality tradespeople and excellent communication throughout the entire process.
Our children went to school with the Millbrook Homes boys. We knew that they were building a credible quality business in The Hills district which made our choice easy. After many years of living on a five-acre parcel of land in Dural, we decided to downsize to Kellyville. With seven children and their partners/wives, six grandchildren and another two on the way, we needed a sizeable home for entertaining. A large alfresco space with plenty of room was mandatory that could be used all year round. The quality of the build, eye for details and ability to make adjustments and modifications in a timely manner made the whole experience terrific.
To all staff, managers, supervisor and trades people who worked for Millbrook Homes during the construction of our new home, my wife and I would like to say a big thankyou for the exceptional standards of workmanship, organization and supervision displayed during the construction. From the start we were treated with professionalism =and respect, as our home required some very unique construction methods and managerial skills to accomplish the development. We started on the May 2015 with excavation only to hit 3 weeks of rain, so effectively our real start date was 26th May 2015. And we moved in on the 18th March 2016, exceptional time frame for a 50 square home with 3 large bathrooms, separate 10 square Cabana with full kitchen and bathroom, inground concrete pool, let alone a 30 square shed to which I received tremendous guidance, support and advice during its construction. Having worked in the cottage construction industry for 30 years we found our Supervisor the best I have ever come across. Every step of the way he kept me informed of the development, sent me photos and emails so we were not inconvenienced with having to go to site continually to check on the progress. That was a huge time saver for us and greatly appreciated. If I could give a special mention to some trades I would like to thank our electricians, plumbers, gyprockers and cabinetry tradesman, there work is to a very high standard and they should be proud of what they have accomplished here. Once again a big thank you to Millbrook Homes for a home you can be proud of as much as we are. And we are happy to give a verbal testimonial at any time to potential clients.
I first met Daniel Whitehead of Millbrook Homes when he was preparing a quote for renovations on our home at Haberfield. I found Daniel to be professional, honest and above all undertook great quality work. My home being in Haberfield, had heritage restrictions placed on it. This made the renovations particularly tricky in many respects and required a lot of thought and work to achieve a good outcome and at the same time comply with various restrictions placed on by the heritage requirement. I found dealing with the entire team of workers at Millbrook a pleasure. They were very patient and took time to explain any aspect of the renovation that my wife or I were uncertain about. The end product, I could not be happier with. The finishings, the detail and quality were exceptional. I would also like to add that the work was undertaken efficiently which clearly comes down to experience. My feeling right from the beginning was that the builder had control of the situation and lining up the various contractors was done in an efficient and timely fashion to ensure the renovation was finished as soon as possible. I am more than happy to recommend the services of Millbrook Homes to any prospective client.
I would like to thank all the staff of Millbrook Homes for their outstanding and professional attitude during all aspects of our engagements. We were recommended Millbrook Homes by a friend after a lengthy search for a quality luxury home builder who would undertake the construction of our own family home design. From our first meeting right through construction and even today 6 months after handover the team at Millbrook Homes were always available and welcoming to answer our questions. Having built previously and coming from a family of past builders our expectations were high and I can honestly say that Millbrook Homes surprised us with their workmanship and attention to detail. Being a Luxury Home builder they often came to us with ideas and changes to ensure that Luxury touch was added and shown wherever possible and within our budget. The construct time was super-efficient for the size of the home, in fact starting one month after a neighbouring property and completing the construction two months earlier then that lot, whom was built by another large well known company. Six months on from hand-over we are still doing some finishing touches around our house and property as we are on a small acreage lot on Sydney’s outskirts and we couldn’t be happier that we engaged Millbrook Homes to build our dream home for our family. We don’t have any hesitations in recommending Millbrook Homes to anybody looking for that superior quality and stylish elegant finish.
