Similarly, depending on the gradient of the slope, you may be able to take advantage of some fantastic views of your neighbourhood or local scenery. Houses built on sloping blocks can allow you to see the city skyline, glorious sunsets, coastal views or a look over your suburb thanks to the extra height you’ll have from the slope.
Building a home on a sloping block will not prevent you from featuring some incredible inclusions. Voids and high roofs are popular additions to split-level home designs, turning your light-filled living areas into a wide-open space. You’ll also benefit from multiple living spaces separated by different, staggered levels, ensuring your home flows seamlessly from one section to another.
The interiors aren’t the only way you can create something unique - you can also get creative with your landscaping. Depending on the steepness of the sloping block, you could construct a layered garden with retaining walls, distinctive greenery, a hidden firepit or for those lucky enough, a sunken spa.
