Duplexes on the Central Coast. All the Benefits You Should Consider

by Feb 28, 2022

If you have, or you are considering buying, a block of land in the Central Coast, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Hunter Valley areas this article is for you!

We will discuss why you should work with master builders Acrow Investments to construct a duplex on your land.

We will list the benefits of owning a duplex. We’ll identify plenty of incentives to live along the Central Coast area. Finally, we’ll reveal why Acrow Investments is the only duplex builder you should consider.

Benefit from the additional living space


Your children are growing up and the family home is starting to feel overcrowded. With a duplex, your older children could move into their own home. They would gain their independence but with the safety of living right next door!

If you are concerned about an elderly or infirm relative living alone you could move them to their own home on your block of land. You will be able to visit whenever you want to and you can be there to help and support them if needed.


Family members working from home? It can be hard to concentrate with several people all working, and having loud online meetings, in the same house. Now you or your family could work from the duplex.

Bedrooms can be converted to office space or the living area to a workspace, with a bedroom area as a meeting room. This is a true luxury workspace with its own bathroom and kitchen!


Living on the beautiful Central Coast, you will have plenty of visitors throughout the year. You enjoy sharing the beaches, waterways and beautiful scenery. You will love having a separate home for your guests. You and they will both appreciate being able to retire to their own home after a long, fun day.

Benefit financially

Holiday let

The Central Coast is popular for weekend trips for city workers and year-round with tourists. A holiday let allows you to decide when you want to have paying guests and when you’d like to leave the second home free for your own use.

Rental Income

Living on the ever-popular Central Coast, you will be able to rent one, or both, homes to get an instant return on your investment. If you live in one home and rent out the other you will be able to ensure the property is well maintained.

The rental market is booming. The area is popular with commuters who want to enjoy the waterside lifestyle in the evening after a day at work in the city.

Property sale

You could subdivide the block to have two lots of land, each with a home. You could sell one and live in the other or sell both.

Instant property value boost

The future resale value of your block of land has increased. You own two separate houses. Whether you subdivide and sell them separately or as a single block, the value of your lot will have had a boost.

Benefit from the Location

Living on the beautiful and vibrant Central Coast is a benefit in itself. Popular with tourists and weekenders getting away from Sydney and Newcastle.

Here are some of the perks of living along the Central Coast:

Waterside lifestyle and watersports

With the golden pacific beaches to the East and endless waterways with peaceful lakes dotted along the coast, you will be embracing a healthy, happy waterside life.

If you aren’t already a fan of watersports you may be when you live in the Central Coast region. Surfing, fishing and swimming in the Ocean; sailing, kayaking in the lakes. With calmer, safe inland waters for the youngsters.

Outdoor life

There is a lot to explore. You will be planning new adventures for each weekend!

Magnificent natural Australian bushland beckons from the National parks stretching up the west of the Central Coast.

Hiking and cycling

Lace up your walking boots or strap on your cycle helmet. Make sure you have plenty of water and snacks in your backpack and take off!

You could be completing a lap around one of the beautiful lakes, seeing it from all angles.

Perhaps you are a fan of the Australian Bush. You could be enjoying one of the many trails in one of our National Parks, bird and animal-spotting as you go.

Strolling and picnicking

If you prefer a more laid-back experience, then a gentle stroll, coupled with a picnic, could be the perfect Central Coast experience for you and your family.

The lakes, coasts and waterways have safe footpaths. They are dotted with play areas for the children and benches to sit and enjoy your waterside picnic.

Community and relaxing

A big draw for Central Coast residents is the vibrant and friendly community. The area is ideal for families with schools, parks and recreation areas.

When you venture out to take advantage of the cool evening breeze, you will certainly bump into some of your neighbours enjoying the view from a waterside cafe or bar.
