Penrith Granny Flat Project
Project – Penrith
Granny Flats for Families
This granny flat was built in Penrith, a suburb which boasts large residential lots with expansive local parklands, clubs and other amenities for growing families. Penrith is one of the largest suburbs in Sydney and is situated at the foothills of the Blue Mountains. This Penrith property is really quite large, at over 4000 square metres. The Owners wanted to help their aging mum secure her own self-contained unit on their large semi-rural lot. With so much room to play with, we actually struggled to find the best place to erect her granny flat!
Good Siting for Privacy and Separation
As stated above, we had plenty of land to play with here, so we took a close look at the important elements such as:
- The location and aspect of the existing dwelling
- The existing swimming pool and addressing aspects of privacy and noise
- Solar access and north point
- Existing vegetation and whether we could use this to enhance privacy
- The general look and other aesthetic considerations for the entire property
The Penrith Design
The clients chose a granny flat design based on ‘The Rachel’ which is one of our base templates. The unique aspect of their chosen design is a separate laundry within the hallway, which is effectively T-shaped. This helps make the granny flat feel more like a house. The ergonomic design is another way you can add articulation and a unique sense of style to a dwelling. The small spaces available for a granny flat really demand good design to maximise the overall appeal of the building as well.
Each bedroom has it’s own built-in wardrobe. We also provided a living room which was spacious and open plan. The hallway was also designed to be wider than usual for easier mobility for elderly occupants. The separate bathroom and laundry were also ergonomically designed with modern inclusions. The kitchen has Caesar-stone benches, gloss finish cabinets and stainless quality cooking appliances throughout.

Whilst most of our granny flats are built with tenants in mind, we also ensure the design and inclusions are great for family use too.
