Unique Newcastle granny flat equals a happy customer

 In Granny Flat Designs, Granny Flats Newcastle

In just 10 short weeks we were able to construct a Newcastle granny flat for a local investor on his Cardiff property. It was the client’s first time buying a granny flat and in a bold move he decided against a design from our standard range of architecturally designed homes, instead bringing his own unique vision to life. Challenge accepted!

A key factor attributed to the speed of the build is the block itself. There were no access or site constraints, so our team could get straight to work. Not only that, but the space was quite large. Even after our client had installed a fence to separate the granny flat from the main house, there was still 400m² of private open land.

The granny flat itself took up the standard 60m², with an additional 10m² of decking. The client picked ModWood products for the outdoor deck, as he hoped for as little maintenance as possible for finished product. These decking boards are cost-effective, eco-friendly and very resistant to harsh weather conditions.

Inside the designer granny flat, an open-plan living room and raked ceiling pulls together the kitchen, living and dining areas with a breakfast bar separating the zones. Neutral toned flooring links the rooms and a large window with vertical blinds compliments this main living space, while a smaller equivalent window spreads the natural light throughout the kitchen. For a relatively compact area, the kitchen boasts an abundance of storage space.

The combined bathroom/laundry adjoining the kitchen is both practical and functional and shares the contemporary colour scheme used throughout the home. The two bedrooms feature off-white walls and grey carpet, carrying on the colour theme. They also come fitted with long horizontal windows with blinds and mirrored built-in wardrobes. A combined ceiling fan/light adds a sense of practicality to both rooms.


Our client was delighted with the quick turn-around on his granny flat design and the quality finishes. Fill in the contact form below to speak to one of our team and start your granny flat journey.
