Unique ‘U’ Shaped Home Design.

This three street front residence is uniquely designed to enjoy the central courtyard. Created for additional privacy, the internal hallway provides viewing angles through picture windows to the pool and the putting green.

‘U’ Shaped Custom Home Design To Suit Corner Block

Designing a custom home has many benefits and one of the biggest advantages is the opportunity to design a home that complements the land it’s situated on.

Pilgrim Street is a great example of a unique home design that meets the challenge of an awkward, non-standard block. With three street frontages the owners took the opportunity to create an internal courtyard surrounded by a ‘U’ shaped home.

As a result, a unique outlook from every wing enjoys views of the swimming pool and a neat putting and chipping green – plus a covered Alfresco area that includes a BBQ and Pizza Oven.

The remaining backyard wraps around two sides of the home. Split into two sections, a play area for the kids, complete with a basketball hoop and the other side serving as a vege patch with raised garden beds.
