It's all smiles in front of this local couple's Birmingham Gardens granny flat.

Thanks to a median weekly rent of $360 and pretty much guaranteed demand from Uni tenants, it wasn’t long before this local couple (along with many of our previous clients!) decided it was time to build a granny flat on their property.

Won over by the fast-tracked approval process, affordable construction fees and potential to earn an ROI up to 20%, building small but smart was a no-brainer for this local couple. Now they just needed to bring in some experts to execute their plans!

Building for success with a savvy investment property

These customers chose the charming Alba floor plan from our designer range for their new build, which was ready for renters in just 12 weeks!

From the street, this bright and beautiful home catches your eye with its Windspray cladding and contemporary facade. Sheltered from the strong Aussie sun by a sleek gable roof, its front patio invites guests inside.

Open the front door and you’ll be welcomed by a generously-sized lounge and dining area. Designed for open-plan living, its adjoining kitchen space allows you to rustle up a meal without missing out on the fun! What’s more, its L-shaped counter is finished with glossy white splash back tiles and a range of Artusi appliances for a fresh yet functional touch.

Next, check out the chrome-adorned bathroom and laundry, which is conveniently positioned beside the two bedrooms. Each with their own built-in fully-mirrored wardrobes and berber grid ash grey carpet, these spacious rooms are plush and private. And the cherry on top? We’ve even installed split system air conditioning for year-round comfort.
