About Your Land Type

Land Falling Away

Where land falls away gently Storybook designers prefer not to incorporate a front site cut thus avoiding the house in a hole look and complications with car access. Rather they keep the home up at the front and raised at the rear coming out onto decks or having a split level a few steps down (often to the living areas) so that there is more direct access to the alfresco, garden, pool etc.


As the fall increases or the potential to capture rear views becomes possible often the Storybook design solution involves two storey construction at the rear. It’s hard to imagine that anyone else could match the huge range of beautiful homes using this type of architecture that Storybook has created over the years.
