Lake Macquarie granny flat – a lesson in style and function
Fresh and inviting is the description that comes to mind the first time you view the latest Lake Macquarie granny flat project by Backyard Grannys. Built on their Glendale investment property, this delightfully inviting granny flat ticks all the boxes when it comes to function and style.
The owner chose The Alba two-bedroom granny flat design from our range of architecturally designed granny flats but chose to modify the build by extending one of the dual Skillion rooves to create a carport. This handy addition doubles as an undercover entertainment area complete with downlights and easy access into the main internal living area.
The roofline is complemented by the upgrade to Newport cladding which is a horizontally laid board and emphasises the striking angles that are a key feature of the Alba granny flat design. Feature lights frame each side of the front entrance door which has been painted white to contrast with the grey-blue exterior paintwork.
Stepping inside the front door, you are greeted with a spacious open-plan living room leading to a modern kitchen with ample storage and with a breakfast bar. The stainless-steel appliances serve as an entrée to the feature piece of the room: a stunning silver bayonet light fitting that drenches the kitchen with warm lighting.
Additional features of the main living space include an economical but effective reverse-cycle air conditioner, downlights, timber-look floor coverings, a linen cupboard, a glass double sliding door, full length windows and a silver ceiling fan.
The two bedrooms are fully carpeted and feature built-in mirrored wardrobes. Adjoining is the bathroom which has been fitted out with a full-size vanity, corner shower, toilet and laundry sink.
The Clare Street property is another perfect example of how quickly a backyard can increase your property value by adding on a granny flat.
