Dark Parade, Sorrento (2007)


A design that responds precisely to client needs and to the specific location is key to a residence from Graeme Alexander Homes.

Having a house built for you is always an important undertaking. The residence will provide a backdrop to your lifestyle, become a place your children love to visit, and be a welcoming venue for entertaining friends. Sourcing a builder who offers a personal step-by-step building experience brings peace of mind and a house that suits yourself and your situation to the letter. Graeme Alexander Homes is a design and build company creating client-specific residences, says owner Graeme Alexander.

“We offer a personalised service to all our clients,” says Alexander. “Our designs maximise site, scenery and situation and are built to exacting standards to suit the family now, and into the future.” This house was designed as a weekend beach house, set amongst tree-covered dunes, narrow streets and older homes. “Without expansive views we wouldn’t usually put major living rooms upstairs,” he says. However, for this design it was effective to place a secondary living area, spare rooms and the garage on the tight, existing plateau. This lessened demand on the upper level, giving us the opportunity to maximise outdoor living spaces, with decks and a pool extending out from the kitchen and main living areas. “As a result, the house has a feeling of spaciousness without us needing to cut too extensively into the tree-clad site.”

Upon completion, the owners elected to make the residence their full-time home.
