1. Amazing views
A common reason for building on a slope is the lot overlooks breathtaking views of the city or mountains. Depending on the location, it may also provide greater privacy from neighbors than a flat lot.
2. Unique architectural design opportunities
Building on a slope allows for unique design options — from the landscaping to the exterior view and interior space. Working with an expert throughout the lot selection process is ideal, as they can help you visualize the various design possibilities.
For example, here at Westlake Development, we can provide you with a wide range of exciting architectural designs — from Asian Contemporary to Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired homes. All our designs are possible in a variety of unique conditions and terrain.
3. Extra space with daylight basements
With a steep slope lot, you get the added space of a daylight basement level. These types of spaces offer much more natural light, full-length windows, and walkout capabilities, unlike basements that are fully underground. This has become a popular option in more recent years.
