Downward Sloping Block Home Designs


Downward sloping block home designs have a reputation for being difficult and expensive for the construction of a house. However with the correct approach, a sloping block can offer opportunities that a level site cannot. It is important that sloping site house designs be specifically developed for the slope of the land rather than trying to impose a building design that is better suited to a flat site. Here with Peter Downes, your contemporary sloping house design will be discussed with you and Peter will add all the final details to ensure that it meets your needs and aspirations.


Building on a difficult or sloping block can create a breathtaking home with incredible views, desirable privacy and an original, innovative floor plan. Peter will consult with you to achieve the most favourable outcomes and you will get the opportunity to live in your dream house! Building on a sloping block is attractive to buyers for a variety of reasons. Not only does it provide stunning elevated views from the comfort of your home, but it also enables an added level of creativity with your home design, often for a more affordable land price. Data shows downward sloping block home designs often offer a lower purchasing price than their flat-land counterparts. Peter will assist you with your design throughout the process!


Transparency, devotion and overall professionalism is what sets Peter Downes apart from competition.
