Sloping blocks can be challenging for some builders, but the team at Freedom Homes have been building new homes on sloping sites around Newcastle, Port Stephens, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Valley region for over 20 years. The new home featured below, is a modern skillion roof design, located in an enviable Lake Macquarie waterfront location.
This popular design style suits open plan living, with the beauty of high raked ceilings adding some design interest, whilst also allowing more natural light into the home. Our quality steel frame system, combined with James Hardie fibre cement external cladding and aluminium windows, means that the home owners won’t need to worry about termites destroying this new home.
Now that the windows and doors are installed, you can see how well the large expanses of glass frame the beautiful lake views. To create an indoor outdoor connection and to continue to maximise the water view, bifold doors were chosen to access the large raised undercover entertaining space to the rear of the home.
When it comes to window glazing options, the louvre windows complement the style of the home and allow the home owners to direct lovely cool breezes into the home during warmer months.
When complete, the interior of the home will be modern contemporary throughout, featuring a designer kitchen with quality stone benchtop, a large walk in pantry, ample storage space and quality cooking appliances. This home will comprise of four (4) good sized bedrooms, study, large open plan living space, over-sized double garage and lots of built-in storage.
Lighting choices include LED downlights to help minimise power consumption and ceiling fans to assist when it comes to cooling during summer. The owner opted not to install air conditioning due to the lovely lake breezes and the design of the home, capturing the winter sun for the cold days and using the louvered windows on the hot summer days, plus these lucky home owners also have the pool to cool off in on the 40 degree days.
