Design options for a narrow block
At Ross North Group we always aim to build a variety of homes with layouts that suit various blocks, design choices and lifestyles. With the recent increase in the availability of narrow blocks, our designers have worked hard to create home designs for narrow blocks, with features that make these homes just as comfortable and stylish as any of our larger homes. Have a look at some of the design options that make these homes so great.
Adding height to a home when the floor space is limited, immediately makes it appear much more spacious. This is why we have used height as a design element in many our homes for narrow blocks. The Elvaston and The Salcombe are just two examples of our homes for narrow blocks, where the entry, kitchen, home theatre and family and dining rooms feature stunning 31 course high ceilings.
A narrow home should be just as comfortable and enjoyable as a larger home. And one of the things Aussies love most is spending time with loved ones. The layouts of our narrow homes are all designed to make cooking and entertaining a breeze. They all include open plan living, dining and kitchen areas that open up onto beautiful alfresco spaces – for an effortless integration of indoor and outdoor living. In The Elvaston the beautiful open floor plan kitchen and family room seamlessly integrates with the alfresco/garden design.
To make our narrow home designs more enjoyable and incredibly luxurious, we pay extra attention to putting attractive details in every room, including the bathrooms. A beautiful bathroom, and especially ensuite, adds a touch of luxury to the home. To achieve this, we have gone to great lengths to make sure our bathrooms include sophisticated designs and items such as twin vanity basins, double-sized showers, various tile designs, large mirrors and superb finishes.
To make a home on a narrow block stand out from the crowd, it should make a grand impression both from inside and outside. We achieve this by building homes with stylish and modern elevations. The Salcombe features a beautiful elevation with a skillion roof, tiled blade wall, and a feature porch that is perfected with an industrial style steel frame.
Sculleries for storage
A lack of storage space can be a problem in narrow and smaller homes, but this is easy to overcome with home designs that include smart, dedicated storage spaces such as a scullery. This little room serves as an extension of the kitchen, and is ideal for storing cooking ingredients and tools, as well as preparing ingredients out of sight of the rest of the home. Our sculleries include space-saving items such as laminate cabinets, drawers and shelves, as well as dedicated storage space for a microwave.
Extend the space and the comfort of the home to the outside with an alfresco area. An alfresco is the perfect addition to any Western Australian home, as it gives the family more space for entertaining and enjoying the outdoors. Many of our homes designs for narrow blocks have beautifully crafted alfrescos from where the gardens can be enjoyed with comfort under 28c ceilings.
In each of narrow block homes it is the little things that make a big difference. We take pride in adding details to our homes that make them comfortable and luxurious to live in. This is why their layouts features five star luxuries such as ensuite bathrooms, walk in closets, gourmet kitchens, and theatre rooms that are dedicated to entertaining and entertainment.
