Corner development sites with a secondary street frontage offer highly desirable opportunities to double your investment portfolio by achieving two independent street front homes.

This development enquiry came with the very large caveat of the site containing a 5m diagonal cross slope over a minimal length of 24m, presenting design and construction hurdles most choose to run from.

However Summit’s development and construction experience helped ensure the clients desire to develop this rear property was brought to fruition.

A workable design solution was developed by Summit and the client, and taking elevation design cues from the clients own architect,  the final design consists of three bedrooms and  two bathrooms, an additional separate study nook and the master bedroom having its own balcony which is constructed over an under croft double garage and storeroom.

The result, a completely unique and individual family home, responding to the constraints of its location, overcoming obstacles not normally associated in developing and constructing a rear strata property.

Comments from home owners Jodie and Paul McWilliams

“Whilst we have renovated before, this was our first new build. Considering the challenging block, we were careful to get the right builders and expertise.

“The team at Summit were fantastic, it took a while to get the design right and Ewan McConnell, Senior Development Consultant was particularly helpful (and patient) whilst we finalised this.

“The build was also no easy feat but we felt very comfortable and confident dealing with our site manager, Nathan Bull and knew we were in very capable hands with him.

“We are extremely happy with the final result. It is a very striking house and we get many people commenting on how much they like it. We are also extremely happy with how well it turned out considering the challenges of the slope we had to work with.

“If we were to build again we wouldn’t hesitate to use Summit.”
