With quality blocks of land in Brisbane becoming harder to find, many home owners are buying existing home sites in established suburbs. This often results in land costs surpassing those of the home being built, making it vitally important that the new home maximises the value of the completed project.

Brisbane Unique Homes has specialised in building prestige, custom designed homes for discerning clients for over 20 years.

Managing Director, Jim Taylor says it’s often more cost effective to design a home specifically suited to its site than to attempt to modify an existing project home plan to suit.

“Every home we build is custom built to suit our clients’ needs and to maximise the potential of the site,” he said. “Our free in-house design service allows clients to liaise directly with experienced designers who are supported by the very latest computer aided design facilities.”

“The process starts with a comprehensive site inspection followed by a series of face to face meetings with the designer as the concept develops. Aspects like the direction the home will face, where best to place living and entertaining areas, how to take advantage of the site itself and incorporate intelligent, eco-friendly features such as roof designs best suited to solar power and hot water systems, and capturing prevailing breezes to reduce reliance on expensive air-conditioning systems will all be considered.”

“These are developed in the context of the client’s accommodation and lifestyle requirements, together with budget parameters.”

“As the concept and floor plans progress, clients can view computer-generated three dimensional images of both the exterior and interior of the home before plans are finalised. Often, the designer will suggest ideas the client hadn’t even thought about: A private courtyard off the master bedroom; a quiet reflection pool beside a sheltered patio. Areas like this become a private retreat where a morning coffee and a good book can be truly enjoyed, well removed from the rush and bustle of modern family lives while a walk-in linen closet or chilled wine cellar can significantly enhance the practical side of living in the new home.”

“The real benefit is that we are generally able to incorporate clients’ own design ideas, secure in the knowledge that the completed home will not be replicated on the block across the road or worse still, right next door. The home’s resale value is enhanced and it is exactly matched to the clients’ lifestyle,” Mr Taylor concluded.

Generally, people associate custom-built homes with substantially increased costs. However, with their many years of experience, it’s no surprise that Brisbane Unique Homes has been able to refine its building techniques to ensure clients receive innovative designs at most affordable prices.

The company offers free design and free interior decorating assistance with every home it builds.
