If you are thinking about building a new split-level home, then reading this design guide is an essential first step.
The benefits of split-level homes are widely known, so why is it that when you look carefully at many homes built on sloping blocks, you'd be entitled to conclude that their builder thought the world was flat?
Too often, what you see is a slab house dug into a sloping block. Steep driveways, large expensive retaining walls and a less attractive street front are the big give-aways.
We don't like to be negative, but the truth is, the poor outlook, drainage issues, reduced light, poor ventilation and lack of privacy such homes experience are hard to escape once you have moved in.
What was a fairly quick exercise for the builder can become a lost opportunity for a family that lasts a life-time.
Designing to the slope, Braewood maximise the practical and aesthetic qualities of designs on any block, creating unique and beautiful homes with manageable driveways, abundant light, natural ventilation, great storage, minimal excavation and wonderful views and outlooks.
