Bayswater North Granny Flat – A Cosy New Home
12 Oct, 2018
Tucked away in this suburban backyard in Bayswater North is our latest granny flat build. Cleverly designed to suit the limited space, this cosy new two-bedroom home ticks all the boxes for charm, comfort and convenience.
With a beige exterior and terracotta trim to compliment and match the existing dwelling, this new granny flat fits right in with its surroundings.
Special consideration has been given to make this granny flat wheelchair accessible, with a ramp to the front entrance and grab rails to the toilet and bathroom.
The living and dining area lets in plenty of natural light, with the warm white walls and taupe-coloured carpeting lending a modern yet still comforting feel to the space. A split system unit will ensure that the living and dining area will remain comfortable and temperate year round.
Leading on to the kitchen where the colour scheme remains similar, with stone-grey countertops and a high gloss finish on the cabinetry, the interior of this granny flat is the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional design. The upgrade to a ceramic cooktop, the soft close drawers, and the addition of a dishwasher makes this kitchen sleek, functional and modern.
Ever mindful of the space available, the clever design of the bathroom, toilet and laundry area has allowed for a discreet, streamlined portion of the house. Tucked away behind a sliding door, this convenient space provides easy access to the hide-away laundry, as well as the bathroom and toilet.
The toilet features both a liftable grab rail, as well as a fixed grab rail, maximising the space and accessibility.
The bathroom boasts a large shower with white cathedral glass screens and a grab rail for safety and more independence. The upgraded Armada hand shower head makes this a versatile and accommodating shower for those with restricted mobility. The low lip shower base allows for easy wheelchair access and the fibreglass shell means no grout and an easy to clean shower.
The master suite retains the neutral colours seen throughout the house, with taupe tones creating a warm, calming atmosphere. The full length double windows allow for a generous amount of natural light, affecting a fresh and inviting ambiance. The master suit features a walk in robe with plenty of storage space and the addition of a ceiling fan will keep the room feeling comfortable as the warmer weather approaches.
The second bedroom features a built in robe with a high gloss finish on the sliding doors. The taupe and white colour palette has been utilised again for this room, providing the perfect blank canvas to afford this room whatever purpose the new owner should desire. This room has also been fitted with a ceiling fan for maximum comfort and air flow.
Overall, this Bayswater North granny flat overcomes the challenges of being built in a limited space, and is a testament to the dedication and talent of the team here at Premier Homes and Granny Flats. The finished product is a home that is cosy, comfortable, innovative and uniquely designed to not only meet the needs of the new owner, but also convey a strong sense of character and personality that everybody wants reflected in their home.
