Acrow Investments have done it again. Our latest successful project: an airy, modern granny flat in the leafy suburb of Niagara Park … and the residents love it!

Located in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, this area was an ideal backdrop for this brand-new granny flat build. With an open-plan design and sleek, modern fixtures it makes for a welcome addition to the existing property. And the best part? It’s already bringing our client’s family closer together.

Here’s the project overview:

Project description: A Niagara Park granny flat that’s ideal for members of an extended family.

Result: Large, airy accommodation for extended family to live in.

Project cost: $139,000 including CDC approval and construction fees.

Build duration: 12 weeks.

Return on investment: Being able to accomodate the extended family is the lifestyle benefit the clients sought. If the accommodation were rented, the area averages $435 per week.

The location

Niagara Park is located in the Central Coast region of New South Wales. Just 6 kilometres north of the commercial and business hub of Gosford, Niagara Park is comprised of residential streets, acreage blocks and some hobby farms. Surrounded and shot through with bushland and reserves, many properties have immediate access to significant greenspace.

The area is ideal for families with young children due to its peaceful reputation and large, technology-driven primary school. It also sports a railway station, shopping centre, world-class sports centre and timber mill within the bounds of the suburb.

With a population of 2,800, the area is mostly known for its lush hills and leafy eastward views. If you’ve ever wanted the best of both convenience, civilisation and nature, you’d be hard pressed to go past Niagara Park.

The project

Our clients came to us with a straight-forward design brief: a roomy, bright granny flat suited to accommodate the extended family. As a family-run business ourselves, we know the importance of familial bonds. We were only too happy to help.

The resultant one-bedroom flat lives up to their brief in the best possible way. The kitchen sports excellent storage, high-quality appliances, stone benchtops and beautifully classy fittings. With an open-plan design, the kitchen and living area give way seamlessly to a large back deck. It’s the ideal setting to host get-togethers with the “neighbours”: the rest of the family from the main house!

The bedroom provides true privacy too. For the resident, it is a comfortable retreat with plenty of room to make the space their own. Large mirrored wardrobes add to the roomy feel while the split-system reverse-cycle air-conditioning means the occupant is comfortable year-round.

The whole flat is fitted out with timber laminate flooring. A hard-wearing option that combines great aesthetics with practicality for a home that is simply airy and modern.

The numbers

The project costed out to $139,000, inclusive of CDC approval and construction fees. With a build duration of just 12 weeks, this is a granny flat that quickly brought a family together.

When a young couple came to us wanting to build a granny flat, the outcome surprised us all. Little did any of us know that – as we explored the couple’s wants, hopes and goals – their granny flat idea would evolve into building a full 3-bedroom home in Kanwal. But, at Acrow Investments, we’re always delighted to help people achieve their property dreams.
