Sloping sites, while challenging, are wonderful opportunities to create stunning and unique homes. However, many people are daunted by these blocks, worried that the gradient will render them unable to create a beautiful home that meets their needs.
Though sloping sites bring their own obstacles with them, these blocks have a great deal of potential.
At Serenity Homes, we are Adelaide sloping site specialists. After completing many custom built homes on these kinds of blocks, we know some fantastic tips and features that can help you to create a truly unique and masterful sloping site home.
Outdoor Pool - Yes, It Can Be Done!
Due to the gradient of the block, you might think that having a pool isn’t possible. This couldn’t be further from the case, as the nature of the block allows for some really fantastic pool solutions. As Adelaide custom home designers, we can integrate a pool into your home design, its position on the block giving access to incredible views.

If you’re worried about space but love to entertain, why not think outside of the box? Creating entertainment areas on the roof is a great way to maximise your space, while creating a stunning atmosphere.
As Adelaide custom home builders, we can design you a rooftop terrace that will be an entertainer’s dream and the envy of all who visit it, incorporating features such as an outdoor kitchen, landscaping, and protection from the elements.
On a sloping site, split-level and mezzanine levels can make for huge visual impact while providing you with greater access to space. Doing this also gives you the potential to add special interior features, such as a spectacular chandelier or even a multi-storey internal water feature.Do you like the look of this home?

Separate Living Spaces
Another amazing benefit of building a custom designed home on a sloping site is that you are able to remove yourself from noise. You can design the home to have multiple living rooms just as you could in any home, however with a sloping site home, you can have a living room down the very bottom while your bedrooms are on the very top level - giving you the ability to escape the hustle and bustle that attaches itself to living spaces.
Big Windows to Capture the Views
As Adelaide luxury home builders, we know that sloping sites give you incredible access to views that may have otherwise been unavailable to you. This is a substantial benefit and as such you can take full advantage of it through the use of large windows.
By building a custom designed home, you have room to develop a solution that captures and enhances the natural beauty of the block, giving you the ability to use whatever materials you want. Large scale, multi-storey windows can even be utilised, so that your views are completely uninterrupted.

Professional landscaping really adds to the overall feel of your home and on a sloping site, you are able to create something truly spectacular. Layered or tiered gardens work wonderfully well on sloping sites, generating an incredible atmosphere. They also have the benefit of giving the illusion of space, if your backyard space is limited.
If you’re looking to have undercover parking but don’t want to have an outstanding garage, underground parking is an excellent way to go. Tucked under your home, you can get a sizeable garage without having to sacrifice space.
