Take A Look At This Charlestown Charmer

by Jul 10, 2022

At Acrow Investments, we work closely with our clients to make sure we exceed their expectations, and we’re thrilled to announce the success of one of our latest projects: a modern, light-filled charmer in Charlestown.

Located just 10kms from Newcastle, Charlestown is popular amongst families and retirees. This means a granny flat investment in the area has a lot going for it too. An open-plan design and modern fixtures mean this new addition to the larger property is a welcome one. Our client has built this granny flat for their son, keeping the family together.

The charming town of Charlestown attracts retirees and established families alike due to its picturesque natural setting.

Charleston, the largest town in the Lake Macquarie region, is a great place to explore nearby villages, stunning blue waterways, and the Glenrock State Conservation Area. Charlestown Square is the largest shopping center in the Hunter region, located close to Newcastle.


Built for our client’s family, the granny flat’s design is perfect for low-maintenance living and has a bright airy feel to it! The bright, spacious open-plan living and kitchen area flows seamlessly into two functional bedrooms, prioritizing family space and a modern look and feel.

Timber laminate flooring, clean benchtops, poly kitchen cabinetry and split-system reverse-cycle air-conditioning complete the project. It all goes towards ensuring our client’s family is kept comfortable.
The granny flat comes with a sun-soaked deck so the client’s son can enjoy the gorgeous garden.

Our clients were thrilled with the outcome and so was their son.
