This latest granny flat build finds us in the fast-growing township of Mickleham. Located 32kms north of Melbourne’s CBD, just outside of the Urban Growth Boundary, Mickleham is an up-and-coming urban mecca that is a surreal mix of fresh-built estates and generations-old rural homesteads on huge, rural properties. The change from being farm land to the next big suburb is still in its’ early days, but for a lot of families, Mickleham is the ideal place to call home.
Owing to the fact that there is simply not a lot of transport or infrastructure available in Mickleham yet, it makes sense that families would want to keep their elderly loved ones close by, in order to provide support and assistance, without the disadvantage of lengthy travel. This particular family have chosen to have a granny flat built to achieve that all important sense of security that comes with keeping a family together.
The Woodville is Premier Homes’ smallest (some would say coziest) 3 bedroom granny flat. As the “big sister” to the ever-popular Woodgrove, the Woodville features three spacious bedrooms, a fabulously designed kitchen and a large living area. With an attached double carport, a verandah and deck. This version of the Woodville gives a great example of the upgrades and extras available when you build with Premier Homes.
The expansive kitchen offers plenty of bench space and innovative storage. The appliance cupboard in particular provides the perfect space to store all of your larger kitchen appliances that may otherwise take up bench space, creating a convenient work space that simply tucks away behind doors.
The handy appliance cupboard, providing a neat and convenient storage solution for all those bulky kitchen appliances.
This innovative pantry designs ensures easy access to the entire pantry and helps to utilise all of the available space, flowing with the design of the kitchen and fitting in smoothly with the flow of the cabinetry.
The wall oven is our high quality Fisher and Paykel model, which comes as standard with all of our granny flat designs. The wall mounted option reduces the need for bending down low and lifting heavy trays in and out, as would be the case for the under-bench option. This is especially beneficial for those with back issues, or even arthritis.
The living room has a warm, cosy feel, convenient dual access and a half-length bay window, which provides the perfect opportunity to put in a window seat and enjoy the peaceful views.
Sunny days can be enjoyed sitting on the front deck, admiring the green pastures, or perhaps through the living room window whilst curled up on the couch with a favourite book. Plush carpeting gives the living room an inviting appeal, with a split system and ceiling fans to provide optimum comfort all year round.
Each bedroom is fitted with a built in wardrobe and is spacious enough to comfortably fit a queen sized bed. The bedrooms in this Woodville granny flat have been fitted with customised shelving in the wardrobes, as well as ceiling fans for those summer months.
The bathroom is cleverly designed to incorporate the laundry facilities, saving on space and costs, while still achieving a pleasant and appealing look for the bathroom.
Overall, the Woodville provides comfortable, modern accommodation for those wishing to downsize, but not sacrifice any of the usual aspects of a standard modern home. With the ability to customise, upgrade and mix and match design elements, the Woodville can be the perfect starting point in the journey to making your ideal granny flat a reality.
