A granny flat is a somewhat casual name, known more formally as an Accessory Dwelling Unit (‘ADU’) or accessory unit. It is usually built onto an existing unit to accommodate aging parents. They are pretty much tiny houses. But because there has been an upsurge in minimalist living and Sydney land prices, granny flats are becoming more and more popular as a means of making the most out of available space. In a nutshell, granny flats are a winner - they are easier to build, cheaper to build, and space-efficient.

What are the main uses of this type of flats?

They are perfect for aging parents or for young adults - two categories of people who need their own space but also need to be nearby. The flats can also be rented out via Airbnb or a similar platform if you are looking for an easy investment. This way, you keep your existing space but make some money through the flat. They are great investment opportunities while also being a great way to cater for teenagers or aging parents. When/If the teenagers have grown up, you can then rent out the space.

What are the advantages of 1 bedroom granny flats in Sydney?

As the smallest kind of granny flat, a one bedroom unit is quicker to build, cheaper to build and easier to build. Most flats are only one or two bedrooms anyway. This is because they are designed as an addition to an existing structure. A 3 bedroom flat might not be much smaller than your existing home.

Can I make money with a 1 bedroom granny flat in Sydney?

Of course. In comparison to the cost of buying or building a new house, you are set to save a lot. Consider that you can rent out a granny flat for similar amounts to a typical house. But at about a third of the build price. That’s quite the saving. For a clear idea of what you could save, check out our wealth creation page.

What are the typical requirements for 1 bedroom granny flat designs in Sydney?

The primary requirements are that your property is at least 450 metres squared with 12 metres of road frontage, and is in a residential zone. The flat cannot be built within 3 metres from the backyard fence, 1 metre from the side fence, and 1.8 metres from the house. The remaining space you can build within. This applies if you are building a detached/standalone dwelling.

What is the approval process?

Hate red tape and local council rules?

Perfect, if your home meets certain criteria (larger than 450m2 and with a minimum of 12m street frontage) there’s no need to secure council approval at all.

These minimum requirements are set out as per the 2009 State Environmental Planning Policy (SEPP), and make it easy to choose your preferred granny flat design and begin building your exciting new space, form of rental income, or secondary dwelling.

Of course, there are lots of things to file and you’ll still need to be compliant, but our experienced team Bellcast Granny Flats will take all of these requirements for you.
