Henley double storey home designs

Australian lifestyles are unique. Our double storey house designs reflect the needs of modern families, with a striking yet inviting façade, welcoming entry and plenty of living spaces.

Henley’s national product manager, Elizabeth Kind, says Henley's modern home designs are influenced by Australian, European and American architectural styles.

"Our double storey house designs reflect Melbourne and Victorian living, with abundant natural light, flexible spaces, indoor and outdoor living areas and stylish, innovative kitchens and bathrooms," Elizabeth said.

"We don't just keep up with trends; we set them. Our homes stand out in any neighbourhood, creating a lasting impression with contemporary flair and a striking presence.

Our double storey house plans range from 21 – 55 squares, to suit lots from 10.5 to 16 metres in width. With so much variety, you’re sure to find a double storey house design that reflects your lifestyle, budget and block size.

Exterior features of our two storey home designs

The clean lines of our two storey home designs create a sleek and sophisticated appearance with solid street appeal.

"Each of our double storey designs tells a story," says Elizabeth. "Combined with your choice of façade, our homes are crafted to reflect the lifestyles and aspirations of those who live there. Whether you're looking for a sense of grandeur, a welcoming entryway or a minimalist aesthetic, our double storey homes deliver - and stand the test of time."

A key focal point in our double storey designs is a combination of different exterior finishes, such as brick, render and cladding, like HardiPlank, Linea or Axon.

"Exploring different finishes adds depth, visual interest and a sense of character to your new double storey home," says Elizabeth. "This three-dimensional quality offers a layered appearance that makes each home distinctive."

All of our homes offer the option of Colorbond(R) steel roofs or more traditional roof tiles, with metal roofs being the most popular right now due to their modern appearance.


Interior features of our two storey house designs

Your home entry is unique to you, so whether your style is luxurious, contemporary, traditional or bold, our double storey house designs will make a lasting impression.

Our large entertaining areas feature a free-flowing kitchen, living and dining with seamless connection to the outdoor alfresco for easy indoor-outdoor living.

No double storey home design is complete without an impressive master suite - upstairs, downstairs or both! The choice is yours, depending on your home design and floorplan. Our 3, 4 and 5 bedroom options feature spacious bedrooms, many with walk-in robes.

Our homes don't waste any nook or cranny of space. From a generous butler's pantry to walk-in linen cupboards, a cloakroom, mud room and walk-in robes, there's sure to be a design with the right storage features to meet your family's needs.


The kitchen as the heart of the home

The kitchen is the heart of the home. Our kitchens are intentionally designed for the needs of larger families and people who love to entertain.

"Our kitchens are big and feature good use of space, making them ideal for preparing meals for large groups and a central hub for gatherings and interactions," explains Elizabeth. "We're now seeing a lot of multi-level cooking where people use the butler’s pantry for preparation, cooking and storage and the main kitchen for presentation cooking and serving."

Nearly all of our double storey home comes with an oversized benchtop as a standard inclusion, offering 3m x 1.4m in size, compared to the average size of 2.5m x 1m.

"The size of our island benches really sets us apart. There’s an increase in families wanting to treat the island bench as a service area for banquet eating, so some are even opting for an island bench without a sink and making the butler's pantry a wet area with a dishwasher and a sink," Elizabeth said.

Other popular personalisation options include large drawers for storage, profile cabinets and a window splashback to bring more light into the kitchen.
