Every Benefit Of A 1 Bedroom Granny Flat

by Feb 14, 2022

Should you consider building a granny flat?

Acrow Investments have a reputation for building top-quality, modern, stylish granny flats and we have hundreds of delighted customers across the Central Coast, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Hunter Valley regions.

This article will outline the benefits of owning a granny flat and what you should expect when you build with Acrow Investments.

What is a granny flat?

The days when you might put up your elderly relative in a room at the back of the family home are long gone. A granny flat is a small home, with one or more bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom and living/dining area. With high-quality inclusions and accessories, a granny flat has many benefits for you.

What’s involved in building a granny flat?

At Acrow Investments, we provide you with a great house-building experience, as well as a stunning home.

Floor plans/designs

  • Working with our team of architects and designers, you will have our existing floor plans for inspiration and you should explore our gallery of previous builds. Our floor plans include two-storey builds and even granny flats with a garage.

    Of course, this is your dream and all of our designs are fully customisable to match your requirements and circumstances.


  • Our construction team is experienced and we will conduct a free consultation and an inspection of your site to be sure of getting local council approval.We are good at this! Our construction duration can be as short as 10 weeks, subject to the weather, of course!


  • Working with you, we only use quality inclusions from the best Australian suppliers. Materials may include Dulux paint, Weathertex cladding and Colorbond steel.

    You can expect premium laminate timber flooring throughout and Beaumont tiles in the bathroom.

    Harvey Norman supply your bathroom accessories and the oven, hob and range-hood in the kitchen.

    You will have great-looking, energy efficient LED down-lighting throughout and split system air-conditioning for year-round comfort.

Council approvals

  • In NSW, you will need approval from your local council for your granny flat. At Acrow Investments, we aim to make this a worry-free experience for you. We offer a site inspection before we look at floor plans. We will be assured your block of land meets all council requirements.

    When we have completed your designs and agreed on the quote, we will take care of the approvals process for you. We have done this many times before and we know the local councils and understand their requirements and processes. We will collect and prepare all paperwork and you can sit back.

    The process should be complete in four to six weeks and we’ll advise you on progress and be available for any questions.

What are the benefits for me?

From the day we hand you the keys to your sparkling new granny flat you will see the benefits straight away.

Extra space

Obviously, you will have increased the living space available for your family. Here are some of the ways you could make the most of your granny flat:

  • Do you need secure accommodation for growing children or elderly relatives? A granny flat is the perfect solution, offering them the independence of their own home and the peace of mind of being right next door!


  • If you regularly have friends or family visit you then what could be better than having their own small home. Plus you all get some privacy, too!

party house

  • Do you, or your children like to throw parties? You could use your granny flat as a dedicated party zone, with it’s own kitchen and bathroom. You even have a bedroom for an emergency sleepover!


  • In these days of “working from home”, you could be working from your new granny flat. Convert the bedroom to a workspace or work from the living area, with the luxury of your own private kitchen and bathroom.

Potential income

If you don’t plan to make use of the extra living space, your granny flat could provide a boost to your finances:
Holiday let

  • Living in the beautiful Central Coast region, you could take advantage of the holiday let/Air B’n’B market. A benefit of this is you can make sure your granny flat is available for you when you need it, for visiting family or friends.

Rental income

  • You could rent out your granny flat for an immediate additional income. You won’t need a property manager with your rental property being next door!

long-term property value

  • No matter what you do with your new granny flat, with two properties and the additional living space, you will have increased the future resale value of your land.
