Building communities with strong foundations

Every residential development project we undertake is guided by our core values. From the materials we use to the way we design our communities – we strive to foster a connection between our residents and the natural surroundings.

Our history

Livingstead, a development company founded by Michael McCrudden and Lincoln Frost, was established with the goal of creating communities that embody the principles of integrity, trust, family, sustainability, and a deep sense of caring.

Driven by their passion for fostering thriving and long-lasting homes for families, they established Livingstead as a grassroots family-based business. The company's focus on delivering the highest quality in all of its projects, while ensuring that they are located in safe, family-friendly and sustainable environments, sets it apart from its peers. Since its inception, Livingstead has stood for certainty, strong foundations, and reliability. Despite its growth over the years, the company remains guided by the same principles and values that were set by its founders. Livingstead is dedicated to building communities where families can flourish and where residents can experience a sense of true belonging.

Our Values


We take pride in our commitment to integrity and trust. We always act with transparency and honesty, building trust with our customers, partners, and employees.


Our projects are designed to be unique, however they are defined by one common goal - to remain functional, usable and, most importantly, sustainable. Our consultants, contractors and professional partners represent the best and the most reputed in the country.


Our company is built on a foundation of family values. We treat our customers and employees like family, and we believe that our development projects should reflect this by fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness.

Thoughtful design

We believe that stability is essential for a healthy and happy life, that's why we prioritise safety and security in all aspects of our developments, from the design of our homes to the selection of our neighbourhoods.


Creating a better way of life

Our mission is to build communities that enhance the lives of the people who call them home. We achieve this by putting sustainability at the heart of everything we do, from the materials we use to the way we design our communities. We aim to minimise our environmental footprint while also fostering a sense of connection to the environment.

We understand that a sense of community is vital for a happy and fulfilling life. That's why we place a strong emphasis on creating communities that are well-connected, both in terms of physical infrastructure and social ties. Our developments feature a range of amenities and shared spaces that encourage interaction and community building.
