House & Granny Flat
Our House & Granny Flat designs
King Homes NSW offers flexible dual occupancy home designs including house and granny flat homes. Our popular Gemini house and granny flat design incorporates a granny flat to the main residence, so you make the most of your block of land.
We understand that families and lifestyles are evolving so sometimes you need that extra residence. Our smart yet affordable designs provide dual residences on one single block of land, allowing those near and dear to you to be close by without compromising on your own privacy.
A King Homes NSW granny flat is a fully contained, comfortable and modern living option which can also help increase your property value. When you build with us, we can work with you to design and build a granny flat to suit your lifestyle, budget and requirements.
A house and granny flat option is a great option for so many reasons. You can use the extra residence as the place for the in-laws to call home or perhaps your older children trying to get a foot into the property market and want to live at home that little while longer. Or some of our clients even consider renting it out as another income to help pay off the mortgage.
We build our granny flats along with your new King home, and a granny flat must be added at the time of the new home sale.
