Bringing a family together: a new granny flat in Sunshine NSW

by Sep 4, 2020

At Acrow Investments, we love it when a plan comes together, so we’re thrilled to announce the success of one of our latest projects: a sun-filled granny flat in the suburb of Sunshine. How is that for an appropriate name? Even better is the broader setting of Lake Macquarie, one of NSW’s most promising lifestyle and real estate investment centres.

Granny Flat in Sunshine NSW
Located just 55 mins from Newcastle and 95 mins from Sydney, Sunshine has an awful lot going for it. 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. And it is already serving its purpose.

What purpose? Bringing a family closer together.

Here’s an overview of the project.

  • Project description: A granny flat in Sunshine to bring an extended family together.
  • Result: A light and airy living quarters that easily matches the standard of the main house.
  • Project cost: $155,000.00 including CDC approval and construction fees.
  • Build duration: 15 weeks.
  • Return on investment: Forging closer connections with family members, as well as a considerable increase in the property’s overall value.

The location

Sunshine certainly lives up to its name! A hidden gem just an hour south of Newcastle, the area is just minutes from the Trinity Point Marina and offers some wonderful water views.

Popular with established families and retirees, the area is simply a gorgeous natural setting. If you’re wanting to get back to nature, you can’t go past Sunshine: a place known as much for its greenery as for the neighbourly spirit among the 450-odd residents.

The project

Built for our client’s extended family, the granny flat’s design is perfect for low-maintenance living and hosting those drop-in visitors from across the backyard … young or old! The bright, spacious open-plan living and kitchen area flows seamlessly into two functional bedrooms, prioritising family space and a modern look and feel.
