Inspired by the Arbour View and Hill View we sought to use the advantages of both these homes with their ability to capture views but at the same time create a more symmetrical and spacious living space that would allow 180-degree views. This new home was named the Valley View as we could see it nestling into a hillside with views down the valley and capturing its environment from everywhere from the free form living area. The kitchen is placed in a corner of this space so even the chef has the advantage of the views. The location of the Master Bedroom and Bedroom 3 with its angled windowed walls were also designed to capture the view.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Rural Building Company design if it didn’t have sweeping verandahs surrounding most of the home. The verandahs have exposed timbers and are supported by bush poles. When earthworks cut into a hill site and then filled the flattest area is the space at the higher side which quite often is the rear of the home. We allowed for the entry to be approached from here where cars are more easily parked and entry to the home is more accessible.
An office is placed off one side of this entry which can if needed double back as another bedroom. The bathroom and laundry were placed off the rear passage area to allow easy access to the outside especially good if you have got muddy boots. Ask for our Rural Building Company specification to see the extras that we supply as standard that finish off and make the bathroom and kitchen very much a display home standard.
The Valley View has been one of our most embraced designs. It nestles so comfortably into its environment, quite unobtrusive yet has a very distinctive and natural style.
