Streamlined Living: Narrow Home Designs Don’t Have To Feel Cramped
Perth block sizes are getting smaller and more narrow. Changing lifestyle priorities, the rise of high density living and the increase of subdivisions in popular suburbs have all meant that for those looking to build a home, a large block of land with a front and back yard definitely isn’t always an option.
As it turns out, this can actually be a really good thing, especially for first home buyers. Smaller blocks mean more affordable lots in better areas, and it also means that you don’t have to pay for the additional land. Getting onto the property ladder can be hard enough without being forced to take out a bigger mortgage for additional space that you don’t really want or need. (Besides, who wants to be stuck mowing the lawn every weekend for the rest of their life, right?)
Advances in home design also mean that a narrow block doesn’t have to mean a small, cramped and uncomfortable home. It just means you have to be a bit smarter about things.
That’s why we’ve designed an amazing range of homes specifically to suit narrow lots. Check out the three streamlined home designs below to learn more about how we’ve been able to make a width of 8.5 metres or less feel a whole lot bigger.
With over 110m2 of living area, a double garage, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study, the Tayla definitely punches above its weight when it comes to making the most of a narrow block.
A living room/dining room and outdoor courtyard also means that there’s plenty of room for entertaining, so invite your friends over (and tell them to bring a bottle of wine or two!).
Would a cramped home feature a home theatre and alfresco entertaining area on top of 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open plan dining/kitchen/family area? We don’t think so!
Whether it’s enjoying a few drinks outside or getting stuck into the popcorn during an epic movie marathon, The Splendour gives you the space to live the lifestyle you want without the hefty price tag of building on a bigger block.
Perfect for first home buyers that want to make the most out of life on a smaller block of land, the Parker makes very intelligent use of its 154m2 floor plan.
Coming in at just 8.5m wide, it features a double car garage, open plan living area, courtyard and master bedroom with an ensuite. An open & airey interior design also goes a long way to making this space saving gem feel a lot bigger than it actually is.
