Are you looking for a beautiful house design for your sloping block of land?
Something that takes advantage of the natural light, views and breezes?
Have you been told it’s too expensive, challenging or “can’t be done” to build on a sloping block and that you should look for something flatter?
Sadly, many builders lack the expertise to build on sloping sites. They often try to level sloping blocks with retaining walls. But this can leave you with a dangerously steep driveway, very little usable yard, and the feeling of being ‘boxed in’. Plus the costs involved in excavation and engineering could eat into your budget forcing you to compromise on features you really want in your home.
The team at Edward Brewer Custom Homes are specialists in split-level homes for sloping blocks. We help you get the home of your dreams, custom designed to perfectly match your block, and delivered on time and on budget – guaranteed.
4 Reasons To Choose A Split-Level Home From Edward Brewer Custom Homes
1. Your Dream Home, Tailor-Made to Any Site
Just because your site is sloped or uniquely shaped doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your house design.
With an Edward Brewer split-level home you can have all the features you want, perfectly matched to the natural contours of your land.
And because we work with your land rather than trying to adjust it, you’ll potentially save thousands on engineering retainer walls to neighbouring properties with the right design.
Use this extra money towards the special things you’ve always wanted in your dream home -- things like luxury finishes, the latest appliances for your kitchen, and a top-of-the-range entertainment centre.
2. The Ultimate In Stylish and Functional Layouts
With an Edward Brewer split-level design you can enjoy a sense of variety inside your home. Different levels, ceiling heights, and sizes of rooms, give you designated living areas and spaces for specific activities.
For example, the bedrooms can be on the upper levels to take advantage of the views and light. And you could split the living room into a ‘downstairs’ recreation space and have a mezzanine level as a study or entertainment area.
The staggered design of a split-level home also gives you the option to create a variety of moods and feelings throughout your home. An Edward Brewer split-level home gives you the ultimate in stylish and functional design options.
3. Take Advantage of Natural Elevation
Don’t settle for the ‘boxed-in’ feel of a standard design.
With a split-level home, you can use the elevation to your advantage and make the most of any views, breezes and natural lighting.
Wake up to the warmth of sun streaming into your kitchen and dining room each morning. Savour the colours of sunset from your deck in the afternoon. And enjoy refreshing breezes that keep your home cool and comfortable all year round.
Your Edward Brewer split-level home is custom designed to take advantage of the natural elevation of your unique block of land.
4. Maximise the Space On Your Site
With a project-built home, you can be forced to simply accept the standard positioning of your interior spaces.
But on a sloping block, this can cause certain rooms to be dark and feel closed in. And it can mean you miss out on the views and breezes unique to sloping sites.
Your Edward Brewer Split-Level Design Specialist takes time to customise your plan to maximise the space and create a sense of flow from room to room.
We pay extra attention to ceiling heights, and the size and placement of windows and dividing walls to make the most of your site and give you the home you’ve always wanted.
What Others Are Saying…
Here is a small sample of what other people say about the unique design and build process of Edward Brewer Custom Homes.
Consider These Real Case Studies
Maximise The Space Of A Small Site
Glenn & Danielle from Attadale had a tight budget and wanted a home which would maximise the space of a small site with a sloping elevation of at least 2.5m
The design was split in 3 particular sections which also attributed to a luxurious architectural style, and made the best of the site's positioning, also managing to deliver the home within budget.
Hilltop Location And Unique Finishes
Dave & Linda chose this design for the large spaces, hilltop location and unique finishes.
They didn't want a regular project home, and needed the relationship with the hilly area to be cohesive with the design. So we customised the floorplan to give them exactly what they wanted.
Work With The Natural Slope
Sue and Lance wanted to work with the natural slope of their land to create separate spaces throughout their home.
This included an amazing living, dining and kitchen area that spills out onto huge outdoor entertaining area yet remains separated from the bedrooms. A pool and exercise room. And a home cinema. Separate 3 and double garages make this home as practical as it is impressive.
