A granny flat can offer the comfort, convenience, privacy and lifestyle of independent living with the added benefit of security, knowing family and friends are always nearby. Many of our customers build portable granny flats to create space for additional projects and downtime or as self-contained living areas for visitors.
Hunter Valley Homes has a proud history as the go-to building choice for granny flats in Newcastle. Our quality comes from understanding that families have changing needs and moving can be extremely expensive. A granny flat is the perfect way to maximise the value of your existing land.
What Is a Granny Flat?
Originally, granny flats were given their name because they were typically used as housing for older relatives. These relatives had all of the comforts and appliances of their old home while maintaining safe and close to their family. They’re usually located at the back of a home and designed to suit the existing design of the property.
They can contain:
- One or two bedrooms
- A kitchen or kitchenette
- A living area
- A separate bathroom or ensuite
- A small laundry area
These days, granny flats have expanded to become investment opportunities and additional living areas. The uses of granny flats are constantly transforming as the needs of modern families change.
The Many Benefits of Granny Flats
Building a high-quality granny flat adds value to your property, making it more appealing to potential buyers and investors. Many renters are interested in living in smaller, more affordable accommodation, so a granny flat can pay itself off if you choose to lease it.
In addition to the economic benefits, granny flats offer families a quiet retreat. Many granny flats are turned into home offices, entertainment areas or creative studios. Being able to switch off from the outside world without travelling too far is a wonderful luxury.
The Convenience of a Portable Granny Flat
Hunter Valley Homes can minimise the time you spend building your perfect granny flat because everything is constructed offsite.
