Bellcast provides a range of designs available for construction. Our 1 bedroom granny flat designs are fully featured and constructed with the highest quality materials for a perfect fit & finish.
While we do offer preset designs, you can tailor the design so that it looks precisely the way you want it to. We would prefer you have the house that you like, and it's much more efficient than changing your mind halfway through a build, which can have disastrous consequences and impact on building time and cost.
This could be just what you need and can be a quick and affordable process. In less than 4 months, your home could have a beautifully attached flat with minimal stress or effort on your part. Moreover, it can also be an excellent wealth builder if you do it the right way, with the right builder.
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, they are a winner - they are easier to build, cheaper to build, and space-efficient.
Designs that we offer are:
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.
As the smallest kind of this type of accommodation, a one bedroom unit is quicker to build, cheaper to build and easier to build. 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.
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 it out 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.
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.
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 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 will take all of these requirements for you.
