Don’t be put off building your dream home on a sloping piece of land. While it may present a challenge that not all home builders are willing to take on, at Cavalier Homes we’re experienced at building on sloping sites and can guide you through the process, avoiding costly mistakes for a stunning result. We take pride in designing and building beautiful homes that work with the slope of the land, not against it.
To ensure efficiency in your home design, here are some key factors your Cavalier Homes builder will consider.
· The views or other aspects you want to take advantage of
· The angle and consistency of the slope
· Where the slope starts and ends to help establish the exact location where the home should be built
· The block’s position in relation to the sun to maximise heating and cooling
· Meeting the regulated height restrictions
· Drainage requirements for water flow during heavy downpours or floods
· Assessing the availability of natural light into the home’s key living areas
· Privacy for yourself and any neighbours
Treat yourself in the Ashfield Split – it gives you the opportunity to feel what space really means. Designed with entertaining in mind, the Ashfield offers five bedrooms and a varied choice of living space plus an urban alfresco area made for you to keep the company of family and friends. Linked to the kitchen and meals area it gives you seamless transition between inside and out. The Ashfield embraces a modern open plan layout with the core living areas at the rear of the house.
Room to move. This is what the Bayview Split offers. A departure from the ‘all too common’ squeeze, typical of today’s construction attitudes. You will love how the Bayview’s formal entry foyer flows to the open plan living, galley style kitchen and dining area. Relish the comfortable master bedroom suite with walk-in robes and ensuite.
You will instantly notice the beautiful lines and contours of the Eclipse Split. The designer kitchen allows you the versatility to entertain even the most boisterous crowds, or to cater more intimate occasions if the mood takes you. With a refreshing undercover outdoor living area that’s designed with privacy in mind, you can sit and chat or simply unwind. With the master suite nestled away from the main entertaining areas, you will feel like you have been taken away to a five-star resort.
The Santa Barbara Split combines great value and spacious design. The living experience will be fulfilling and memorable. Relax with friends in the stylish formal lounge area, enjoy the open plan living at the rear. The study option will give you the versatility you’ve been craving. With something for everyone, Santa Barbara is sure to impress.
The process of removing soil and material from one area of land to fill in another section, creates a flat surface for the concrete slab to be laid. This process often leads to a retaining wall or cliff face next to the house.
Homes built on split levels are often considered the ideal solution for a sloping site. Unlike a traditional two storey style home with a full flight of stairs, split level homes have shorter levels and are connected by short flights of stairs. This allows you to create a home that flows with the natural landscape of your block, takes advantage of natural light and maximises any views.
At Cavalier Homes, we’re known for setting style and design trends, breaking new ground and raising the bar, that’s why we’re always challenged and inspired by building stunning homes on sloping blocks.
