Building Lifestyle Through Investments

Contemporary Duplex in Cooranbong, Lake Macquarie

by Nov 5, 2019


Our team recently had the privilege of approving and constructing a contemporary duplex investment property in Cooranbong, Lake Macquarie. The property, situated 120km north of Sydney, is ideally located in a town that’s fast becoming a lifestyle suburb of the thriving City of Lake Macquarie urban area. 

Project overview was as per the below:

  • Project description: Side by side three-bedroom, two-bathroom, double garage duplex
  • Result: A 350m2 duplex with the option to live in one/rent out the other, sell one/lease one, or sell both dwellings separate for a great return
  • Project cost: $850,000 to $900,000 which includes land and construction costs
  • Build duration: 24 to 28 weeks

Gross profit: approval $150,000 to $200,000 based on current market

The property itself is an ideal investment opportunity. Being a side-by-side, three-bedroom, two-bathroom, double-garage duplex, it’s the best of both worlds. How? Because a duplex enables the owners the option to sell both dwellings separately for a profit, sell one and rent out the other or retain both dwellings and rent both out while making the most out of this area’s growth while receiving a great additional income. 


Cooranbong is renowned for its natural rainforest setting, and this duplex is a stone’s throw from multiple picturesque bush walks to the summits of the Watagan Range – itself a destination worth experiencing for its coastal views alone.

Cooranbong is the perfect way to experience country life in the midst of city-like amenities. Popular with families, professionals and retirees alike, the area is known for its neighbourly spirit and dedication to the environment.


At Acrow Investments, we’re particularly proud of the build of this duplex. The interior features modern bathrooms and ensuites, built-in wardrobes and high-gloss polyurethane kitchens. A modern, open-plan approach to the interior makes the most of the 350 square meters allotted to the complex, ensuring all living areas feel spacious and comfortable.

Exterior landscaped gardens, a coloured concrete driveway and the use of Austral bricks make for an exterior that will hold its modern finish for years to come. People know that this is a property worth the investment.

Speaking of investment: the project cost rounded out to just under $900,000. Inclusive of land and construction costs, our client essentially built two homes for the construction cost of one. Combined with a gross profit of $150,000 to $200,000 (based on the current market), the project proved a resounding success.

With this success the client was able to build their lifestyle through investment and is now looking to start their next project in the area.
