For the modern family



A fresh two-storey home that fits well into the existing streetscape

Positioned in a leafy suburb on Sydney’s North Shore, this custom-designed two-storey abode was designed to suit the owners’ requirements for a home that fits in with the existing landscaping at the rear and an open feel to the living area out to the rear yard.

“The clients’ brief was to provide good areas for the couple and their teenage son,” explains Paul Vale of Grantleigh Homes, who designed and built the home.

Grantleigh Homes worked with the existing block to ensure the home suited the landscape and slope and it also had to incorporate some clever touches when it came to the interior.

“The owners needed to fit in a number of existing furniture items including several large bookcases, so measurements were taken and neat recesses were created in the new design, together with appropriately sized nib walls to ensure the owners’ extensive collection of books was well accommodated together with other furniture items,” says Paul.

Due to the slope of the block, the ground floor was stepped down towards the rear to sit well on the site and provide a higher ceiling to the open living area to the rear. Spotted gum flooring through the ground-floor living areas, entry and kitchen is a particularly appealing element of this design.

“This home is special as it is a modern two-storey home that fits neatly into the existing streetscape,” says Paul.
