About This Home Design
ne of the things we truly enjoy about designing new homes is overcoming the challenges, presented by each home we design, to ensure every aspect is nothing short of ideal.
In addition to the client brief, every site has its own set of limitations and all must be designed within the required building regulations.
If this wasn’t already enough, we take on the swimming pool & landscape designs also…as we did with this home. Then we must ensure everything comes in on budget.
As you can imagine, overcoming these challenges to deliver a home our clients love is extremely rewarding. We love what we do. It’s not a job, it’s an absolute thrill. Let’s design your home!
Ground Floor Design
any of the Double Storey House Plans we see are like one box on top of another, making for quite a boring house design. Not so with Boyd Design. Not one of our Double Storey House Designs are boxy and boring. Our home designs are always filled with interesting features and, no matter where one looks, there’s always something pleasing to catch the eye. This home is no exception.
From its generously proportioned garage through to the rear access way, every detail has been carefully designed to deliver a stunning, yet practical home. The garage has built-in storage and a roller door provides access to the rear. The rear access way provides additional parking for a car, boat or trailer. While these areas consume space, nothing has been sacrificed.
Greeted by a large covered porch, visitors will be impressed by the spacious entry hall. Featuring a cabinet recess, the entry hall is filled with natural light which is fed in through the glazed doors flanking the cabinet recess. These opaque glazed doors lead to the master hall.
In addition to delivering light to the entry hall, the master hall overlooks a stunning courtyard which is enjoyed from the master bedroom also. The unique design of this impressive master suite was not designed for looks alone. With the robe & en-suite being separated from the bedroom, one can get ready in the morning without disturbing the other. Form and function!
The generously proportioned living areas provide ample space for furnishing and a feature fireplace adds interest. With direct access to the pool area and alfresco areas, the living areas flow effortlessly to the outdoors.
The list of impressive features on the ground floor include the chef’s kitchen, dual access laundry, stepped home cinema and generously proportioned gymnasium with store. The stair area is filled with natural light and the, centrally located but private, powder room is hidden from view.
First Floor Design
nlike many Double Storey House Plans, the first floor area of this home is also packed with features.
Featuring three queen size bedrooms and spacious sitting room, the first floor also features wide hallways, a feature cabinet recess and attractive wall recesses.
With its generously proportioned bathroom and separate powder room, the plan also features a large linen cupboard.
Opening on to a usable balcony, the open plan sitting room is the ideal space for the kids to hang out or study.
Home Design Summary
hile these Double Storey House Plans may not suit you, your site or your budget, what you can appreciate is the thought that’s gone in to this design. Everything flows exceedingly well and we’ve paid attention to the important details. There are features at every turn, the home is filled with natural light and the outdoors forms an integral part of this impressive home. It simply doesn’t get any better.
What makes this home complete is the fact that we designed the pool & landscape at the same time we designed the house. This is not something you can expect from most Building Designers. As the title suggests, most focus on the house only. This, along with our creativity and passion, is what sets Boyd Design apart.
