Happy Handover in Adelaide Hills

Congratulations Jason, Carissa, Jacob and Bella!

Stroud Homes Adelaide Hills, located in the centre of Mount Barker has now officially handed over its first home – on time, on budget!

“Showing our clients around their new home was a pleasure filled with laughing, smiling, and the kids happy excited Instagraming and Snapchatting their new home,” says Rachelle Barlow of Stroud Homes Adelaide Hills.

Let’s take a look inside…

The Modified Paddington

This home was originally a Paddington 240 which was modified to a Paddington 240 split level home.

Other modifications included the child’s retreat, which was removed, and the space shared between the two kid’s bedrooms.

Even though the client chose one of Stroud’s plans, the team only used it as a base design and altered it to suit the block and the client’s needs, at no extra cost.

This is all part of the service Stroud Homes Adelaide Hills gladly offers all its clients. You can change any of the designs to suit your needs, and the team will work out the best way to fit a home on your block.

Building on Sloped block

This home was built on a block in Mount Barker with 4.5 metres slope, therefore the split worked out to be a 1.7 metre split where a spotted red gum staircase was installed.

This home is a fantastic example of what can be achieved on a sloped block which after all is very common in the Adelaide Hills.

With some vision and imagination working together and communicating with the client and the designer, the outcome that was achieved was a home that looked unique and stunning.


The Hamptons

The inside of the house was upgraded to the Hamptons. This meant that the architrave and skirting boards were wider, the doors on the kitchen were 2PAC painted shaker style doors and this theme ran through at the house including in the bathrooms, hallway and laundry.

The sink in the kitchen was changed to a solid porcelain Butler sink, combined with The Hamptons taps, subway tiles, Hampton style bedroom doors, and 60mm Caesarstone bench tops.

The overall look was stunningly seamless and with clean lines.

A combination of white cladding and a blue/grey stone featured across the bottom of the house, the kerb appeal of this home speaks for itself.

The clients request was to have a home like the picture on our website, and the federation façade was certainly achieved.


Happy Handover

The handover was the finale of all that had been achieved. And what made it all possible was an amazing team who complemented each other in their work.

“All of the tradies, designers, engineers and cleaners who made this home perfect for handover, working and communicating with myself and Gary to produce a quality product to be proud of,” says Rachelle.

Whilst talking in the kitchen, our client Carissa commented, “Rach this feels like home”. “Funny that is what my shirt says”, I said.

“This, for Gary and I, is what this whole process is about; we are building homes, not houses.”
