For over 30 years, the team at Unique Homes have been designing and constructing award winning split level home designs on some of South-East Queensland’s most challenging residential blocks. We specialise exclusively in designer homes, which enables us to offer a far greater level of customisation than a typical project home builder can. If you are considering to have a luxurious home built on a more difficult plot of land, enlist the services of a reputable home builder you can trust.

We offer complete turn-key home building solutions, with our team of architects, interior designers and contractors able to handle the entire build process, from initial concepts right through to the construction of your remarkable new residence.

Why Build with Unique Homes?

Deciding on which home builder to design your dream home must surely be one of the most crucial decisions you’ll ever have to make. We can make that decision a little easier for you by listing the reasons why choosing Unique Homes is a smart choice.

  • We’re a custom home building specialist which allows us to design and build the ultimate home residence for you, specifically to suit the size and type of land that you intend to build on (such as sloping block)
  • Each family has its own distinct needs. Why move in to somebody else’s idea of a ‘suitable home design’ when you can have a beautifully designed Gold Coast luxury home made just for you, at a price that is comparable to a project builder?
  • When you make the decision to build with Unique Homes, you will deal with the Managing Director himself, Jim Taylor, who personally oversees the construction of all homes that are built
  • As a low volume custom home builder, our clients are offered an unparalleled level of customer service. We understand that our clients are our most prized assets and we do everything we can to ensure that the entire build process proceeds without hassle and to their utmost satisfaction
  • When you have a custom home built for you, it truly is your home. You are intimately involved with every step of the design process, ensuring that the final build is everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Even our international customers are able to quickly relay their ideas to our design team and have them implemented as they please
  • A custom home design offers complete flexibility. Additions and alterations to your floor plans do not result in often-extortionate excess building costs, as seen with project home builders

    The Split Level Home Design Process

    When considering to build a split level home design for clients, the proposed block of land must first be inspected. This close examination of the site is necessary to obtain a sense of its relative complexity, giving us an estimation of any difficulties that may possibly arise during the building phase. It also provides us with an opportunity to inspect the adjoining lots.

    Once the initial inspection is complete, a comprehensive contour plan is needed to allow our architect to produce a concept drawing. Following this, the client will begin liaising with our design team, allowing them to bring forth their own suggestions and requirements that they wish to incorporate into their split level home design. When an in-depth understanding of the client’s vision has been collected, the preliminary home design phase will commence.

    Upon completion of the initial designs, an approximate pricing structure will be compiled. These designs will clearly indicate to the client where the splits are to be positioned, the height of each split and the number of stairs required between levels. A budget will then be calculated. Constructing a split level home on a sloping block demands a significant amount of planning and specialist expertise.

    Design Phase

    Based on our initial consultation with you, our architect develops a set of floor plans and interior designs, before inviting you to examine the finished concept. We introduce you to a full range of premium décor options to complement your home design. We then issue you with a detailed breakdown of the costs, based on your configuration. Finally, we develop a timetable for you, giving you an insight into when you can expect to take delivery of your magnificent new residence.

    At this part of the build process, you are given the opportunity to make any last-minute design alterations and make final decisions on your interior materials. Once everything has been agreed upon, we draw up the contract documents for you to approve and sign off on. Following this, building permits will be sought from your local council so that construction of your new home can officially begin.

    The building phase commences by readying your block for construction. This involves making all necessary excavations to ensure that the foundation can be laid. We keep you notified of the progress of your home’s construction through regular phone calls or onsite updates.

    Once your home has been completed, we invite you to our head office to hand over the keys and provide you with a folio that contains all necessary documents for future purposes. At this point, we also arrange the dates for our complimentary inspections of your home, as part of our quality assurance package.

    Maximising The Potential of Your Sloping Block

    As acclaimed builders of split level home designs, we’re familiar with the challenges of getting the most out of your block of land. This involves creating a design that not only provides a truly wonderful living experience for the client but also ensures that it makes the most of the site’s unique qualities.

    The home is designed in such a way as to:

    • Help protect against natural disasters like flooding
    • Provide optimal use of sunlight throughout the home
    • Offer the best possible views of surrounding scenery
    • Incorporate other important environmental considerations

    Careful design of your property will help ensure that less fill, excavation and retaining walls are required to be used. It will also help guarantee a driveway that has a milder incline. We have broad knowledge of all residential design codes and have the expertise to succeed in the face of any complexities that may arise with a local building governing body, where split level home design is concerned.

    Designing and constructing a large, split level luxury home is a lengthy process and we draw upon our considerable experience to ensure the entire building process of your dream residence travels smoothly for our clients.

    Advantages of Split Level Home Designs

    You can still have a big home on a smaller plot – even when working with a more compact lot, a sloping block home design ensures that you’ll still have an abundance of room to construct a larger luxury home. This also handy if you plan on installing a backyard pool or desire a decent sized area for outdoor entertaining or for the kids to run around in.

    They’re cost efficient – since they require a smaller plot of land to construct on, split level homes are a more cost effective solution for building a larger sized home.

    Plenty of room for entertaining and privacy for occupants – split level homes offer the convenience of being able to have large open spaces that contain the living areas such as the kitchen, dining and lounge rooms, while also providing seclusion for the bedrooms, which are separated by short staircases.

    They make great use of the surrounding views – for those perched on a hillside or a particularly steep incline, building a split level home will allow you to enjoy fabulous views of the surrounding area.

    25 Year Structural Guarantee

    At Gold Coast Unique Homes, all clients are treated to a full suite of benefits, including free home design, free interior decorating assistance PLUS an unprecedented 25 year structural guarantee with each home that we design and build.
