Attached Granny Flats: What Are the Benefits?
Granny flats have become a popular addition to homes around NSW, especially since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Providing not only family accommodation but also an investment asset, granny flats are available in a range of designs and can be configured to meet your needs. One such design choice to consider when building is the attached granny flat.
An attached granny flat is designed to seamlessly blend into the home’s overall design, being attached to the main house by at least one wall and containing it’s own separate entrance and amenities, also known as a dual occupancy home.
As with stand alone granny flats, an attached granny flat design will still need to comply with regulations and minimum block sizes. In NSW, the maximum habitable space for a granny flat is 60 square metres. Garages, carports and alfresco areas are not included in this space however, and can be designed to maximise outdoor living.
An attached granny flat is the ideal choice for extended family members wanting to live under the one roof but also wishing to maintain their own space, as well as offering a smart investment opportunity. Providing a cost effective solution during the initial build, building a home with an attached granny flat will greatly reduce your build costs and delays that can be experienced when building a home and detached granny flat separately.
Privacy screening and separation of outdoor areas are easy ways to ensure privacy for occupants of both homes. When designing your floor plan and building your granny flat, consideration should be given to where the outdoor and living areas are located to ensure privacy.
By adding an attached granny flat to your new home build, the rental income could potentially offset any mortgage repayments and offer an additional income source. As well, an attached granny flat can be utilised as a home office or home studio, offering endless advantages.
