Backyard Grannys newest architecturally designed granny flat, The Silverdale

 In Granny Flat Designs

A lot of planning, preparation and skill goes into the design and delivery of our architecturally designed granny flats. With the recent unveiling of our MBA Award Winning design, The Silverdale, in Lake Macquarie, it is worthwhile looking back over the process we go through building our granny flats.

This unique ground-up design is an original from Backyard Grannys Director, Alex Mitchell, with construction led by our building coordinator, Jacob Kepreotes. It is a design we’re extremely proud to add to our line of affordable, stylish granny flats.

The Silverdale is a contemporary designer granny flat featuring a striking double skillion roof. The unique floor plan is easily customizable to add front and rear patios in varying sizes to suit the tastes and budgets of all people.

The internal floor plan is functional and spacious and is a full 60m² including two bedrooms, a bathroom and internal laundry. The main living area has a raked ceiling, and highlight windows are included in the design creating an additional sense of space.

This Newcastle granny flat features matte black tapware throughout and a stunning kitchen, including stone bench tops and a splashback window. The main living area flooring is QuickStep laminate and we laid carpet in the bedrooms.


Over the course of the build our specialty division, Newcastle Designer Granny Flats, published a series of blogs to provide an in-depth, behind the scenes look at the key stages of building a Newcastle granny flat.
