Newcastle granny flat built for beachside holiday home

 In Granny Flats Newcastle

When we build a granny flat, it is our mission to help our clients achieve their goals. With recent clients Tom and Linda, from Sydney, it was no different!

Tom & Linda chose one of our most popular designs, the Allambie two bedroom granny flat. Tom worked with our architectural designer to make sure he had the right layout and features he required. Their site is located in the coastal suburb of Caves Beach, in Lake Macquarie. They wanted to maximise their views of Swansea channel, therefore it was important we orientated the building precisely, which was something we achieved in the design phase.

This Newcastle granny flat is built on bearers and joists and also features a skillion roof which extends out over the large merbau deck. This deck also features downlights and a servery bench from the kitchen. The external façade of this granny flat has James Hardie Axon cladding in Colorbond Deep Ocean.

The design includes open plan living and the dining room also merges into the kitchen. The kitchen has been designed with a waterfall stone bench top and as mentioned above, protrudes out of the external kitchen wall as a servery bench for the deck.


Their granny flat was built in 16 weeks and they now have spectacular views of the Swansea channel and bridge!

Tom and Linda are extremely pleased with their granny flat;

My experience with Backyard Granny’s building my custom granny flat has exceeded expectation. Working with Steve in the design department gave me my own unique granny flat. The granny flat is a very solid construction and the corbel in the brickwork gives it a unique finish with where the cladding meets the brickwork. Jack made the construction process go very smooth and kept me updated regularly. I recommend Backyard Granny’s to anyone who is wanting to build a granny flat.”

We are pleased that we have been able to facilitate our clients achieving their goals with an amazing result. Stay posted as we will be having an open day for this granny flat. We will announce the date in the new year!
