Downsizers see life from a new perspective

Downsizers see life from a new perspective


Downsizers Peter and Judy Klekner have taken a bespoke approach to creating their dream home, choosing a sloping homesite which has given them the opportunity to 'build two homes under one roof'.

Peter Klekner said the couple's unique lot inspired the design of their custom home, which had been crafted to match their lifestyle.

 "When we decided to downsize, we were originally looking at a flat block with a single level, four bedroom home," he said.

"We really loved the look and feel of Ellendale, and after doing some research, we realised a split block would better suit our needs.

"All living spaces and our bedroom are at street level, and we have used the down split to create a semi self contained flat with a bedroom, ensuite, rumpus room and laundry - which is perfect for when family and friends visit.

 "We worked with builders OJ Pippin to create our home and found the design and construction process, and cost, was relatively similar to what it would have been if we had chosen a traditional home.

"We are really happy with our home and now realise that downsizing is not about losing space, but choosing the right lot and design to suit your changing lifestyle."
