15th Jan – Blocks Of Land Come In All Shapes and Sizes

Blocks of land come in all shapes and sizes – long, wide, narrow, short, flat, and sloping. It’s the latter that can sometimes prove to be a more difficult proposition for homebuyers and builders alike.

By definition a sloping block of land is just that – there is a high side and a low side, whether that be from front to back or side to side. Sloping blocks generally offer amazing views and breezes and can transform a home into something quite architecturally spectacular.

Today, more and more people are discovering the unique opportunities for creative design and lifestyle advantages that only a split-level home on a sloping lot can offer. In most cases, the land of the sloping lot is ‘stepped’ to address the slope resulting in split levels inside, while outside, retaining walls or garden treatments deliver garden ‘rooms’.

Sloping lot designs allow for extra storage space that fits effortlessly into the building plan. The extra space comes in the form of undercrofts for three or four car tandem garaging or workspaces, as well as smaller spaces such as cellars and walk-in cupboards.

Be sure that when it comes time to select your block, you have thought of the type of home you want to create and your budget and then choose a builder that can deliver on your expectations. It’s important to do your research and ensure you have multiple quotes from multiple builders.
