Some of the most picturesque blocks of land in Sydney come with a slope. Think the gorgeous hills of the Lower North Shore, the sandstone plateaus of the Upper North Shore, the steep valleys that surround the Lane Cove and Parramatta Rivers and the rolling hills that characterise the Northern Beaches.
Wincrest Bespoke has had the honour of building homes at some of the most prestigious addresses in Sydney, including the areas above. As such, we have designed and built homes on all types of land – including sloping blocks.
From our experience, we’ve found that building on a sloping block comes with some fantastic opportunities for the home-owner. Below, we’ve outlined some of the ways a sloping block can be an advantage when it comes to building your prestige home:
One of the greatest advantages of a sloping block is they often come with a view. This includes views of the harbour, the ocean, rivers and natural bushland. Even if it is simply a view of the neighbourhood, you will need a home that’s designed to maximise its outlook.
Due to its elevation, homes designed for sloping blocks lend themselves to a greater abundance of natural light, cross breezes and air-flow.
A blue-ribbon block of land requires a blue-ribbon home – not one that’s the same as the neighbours! That’s why every Wincrest Bespoke home is fully custom designed. Not only is it built to complement the slope, it is also built around the unique needs of the family who’ll live there, making it the perfect choice for those who want their luxury home to be as individual as they are.
Wincrest Bespoke can specifically design prestige homes for sloping blocks with up to a 7-metre fall.
Wincrest Bespoke offers every client the choice to work with their architect, or ours. For those who choose their own, our team is trained to seamlessly collaborate with external architects to interpret your vision for your sloping block down to the finest detail. They will expertly review the plans to ensure buildability, cost effectiveness and functionality; with no compromise on design.
When it comes to creating a prestige home for a sloping block, it’s about selecting the right builder – one that not only understands the challenges of the block, but one that also understands the exclusivity of design and service that’s expected from a high-end build. If you have found your premium parcel of land, don’t be put off by its slope. Instead, build a home that is every bit as spectacular as the land it sits on.
