Alfresco entertaining all-year-round in your Knockdown Rebuild

December 2022 In Knockdown Rebuild

Australians are known for their love and appreciation of the outdoors and with one of the newest Dennis Family Homes designs, The Balmoral 503, displayed at Berwick Waters estate in Clyde North, the oversized Alfresco is a destination of its own, providing an opportunity to entertain outdoors, no matter the season, weather conditions or knockdown rebuild orientation.


When knocking down and rebuilding a home, your Alfresco area begins as a carefully designed extension from the interior floorplan, ready for you to add your personalised functionality and all the luxurious touches you’ve always wanted.


You could design your dream outdoor kitchen? Did you want a built-in or freestanding BBQ? What about the latest BBQ accessories and considered storage design? No matter the Knockdown Rebuild home design you chose, every home comes with a natural gas point, plumbed in, ready for you to install the latest stainless-steel BBQ, so you can impress your friends and family with your famous slow cooked, fall-off-the-bone and melt-in-your-mouth ribs!



Bring the outdoors in and bring the indoors out.

Serving and clean-up can be a breeze, with some of our designs offering an oh-so-convenient retractable server window (it’s fast becoming one of our favourite features), allowing seamless interaction from your indoor Kitchen and meals area through to your well-appointed Alfresco Entertaining area.


No matter the size of your Alfresco, all our new home designs include sliding glazed doors (with optional upgrades to stacker sliding doors) bringing a seamless flow from the interior through to your exterior Alfresco.


Lounge or dine in your alfresco – the choice is yours.

Summer days often turn into summer nights. Selected knockdown and rebuild Dennis Family home designs offer a lavish Alfresco floorplan, allowing you to boast both an outdoor lounge and outdoor dining area, so you are covered from your morning coffee right through to your favourite aperitif, before your family and friends arrive for your impromptu BBQ get-together.



Those added outdoor alfresco extras.

The other opportunity you have when knocking down and rebuilding your home is the control you have over adding optional upgrades and functionality to the design of your home, making sure you capture everything you and your family need to live your best (outdoor) life.


Do you need an extra external power point to plug your laptop in when you want to work outside on that beautiful summer’s morning? How about a power point, installed in the perfect location for your future outdoor kitchen (does this include a fridge)? And don’t forget about a TV point to watch the big games, live on your Alfresco TV? Are you upgrading to an external ceiling fan? The list goes on, but you’re in control.



Exterior alfresco selections and finishes.

You will feel the continuation of your knockdown rebuild when stepping out from your living or meals area into your Alfresco as the undercover roofline is finished with the luxury you would expect. Depending on your chosen home and alfresco roofline and design, you will find quality finishes with trim to your plaster lined ceiling, a generous downlight lighting plan and of course, the entire area is finished with brickwork or cladding (pending selected design) above all windows and doors.


Exterior finishes are primarily focused on selecting for your façade street appeal, but it’s also important to note that your selections also apply to the back (and sides for that matter) of your home, which includes your Alfresco area. While bricks are the foundation of your home, they can be stylish as well as functional.


The dedicated Dennis Family Homes Showroom team will be with you every step of the way to help best personalise your knockdown rebuild exterior materials and colour selections from our carefully curated range.
