If there was ever an example set to squash the myth that a granny flat is just a cheap, low quality kit home, this would be it. Feast your eyes upon this custom built Narre Warren North granny flat.
Our client for this build came to us with their own layout in mind, and with our help and expertise, our builders were able to bring to life their vision of the perfect home for their dependent loved one.
This superbly designed home radiates class and sophistication. With raked ceilings, a carport, double gabled roof and a rendered-look exterior, this stylish, modern home certainly doesn’t look like the granny flats of days gone by.
The entry way opens up into the living and dining area. The architectural design of the ceiling creates a visually dramatic effect, with a raked ceiling in the entry way adding height and spaciousness, while the standard flat ceiling in the living room lends itself to a cosy, comfortable atmosphere. The use of wider architraves and skirting adds to the modern feel of this granny flat. This detail is used to great effect, creating beautifully framed windows throughout. Overall, the space is light, open and welcoming.
Running along the opposite wall to the living room is the kitchen. The design has been kept simple and understated. With Visoni Stone Gloss laminate bench tops, finished with a flat edge; it would be easy to mistake them for real stone. The soft close drawers on the cabinetry feature a modern looking Designer White Texture finish. Subtle grey tile trim compliment the bench tops and natural-look flooring. The raked ceiling and the extended scale of the entrance into the alcove walk way gives the kitchen space a greater sense of size and grandeur.
The laundry is a functional, practical room with ample storage and access to the backdoor. Across the way is the bathroom, with its contemporary design and large frameless mirror to amplify the space; this bathroom is fresh, modern and practical. The large shower has a low lip base and sliding glass screens, making it easily accessible. The colour matching for the tiles, counter top and flooring is superbly executed, maintaining the theme set throughout the entire house.
Both bedrooms feature a built in robe and a spacious layout. Highlight windows have been used to create privacy, while still allowing in plenty of natural light and serene views of the surrounding tree line.
Set seamlessly alongside the existing dwelling, this granny flat blends perfectly into its surroundings. With careful consideration to every detail and built with passionate dedication to its unique plans and layout, this build has been a fun and exciting project for both parties.
Ready and waiting for the finishing touches of paint work and window furnishings, it is not hard to visualise this granny flat completed and fully furnished with all the things that will make this amazing granny flat a truly beautiful home.
