Granny Flat Northern Beaches Project

Northern Beaches Granny Flat Project

The Northern Beaches of Sydney boasts scattered dwellings on a beautiful coast-line, amongst untouched natural landscapes. The land form is also uniquely undulating and coastal in nature. This Avalon property was typical of the region, with lots of native trees, massive undulation and ocean views to die for. The challenge was to design a granny flat which blends perfectly with the existing dwelling and the natural surroundings. So the granny flat needed to be functional whilst taking advantage of million dollar views!

The Challenge

This Northen Beaches Granny Flat build is probably the most challenging and exciting project we’ve ever taken on. This is primarily because: 1. This granny flat had to take advantage of the beautiful Avalon ocean views. 2. The property has a slope of over 35 degrees! The slope of land and rocky outcrops needed a particularly skillful builder. The Engineering challenge for the Builder was truly unique here. 3. The design of this granny flat had to be customised in order to provide a roof-storage-attic and a gorgeous veranda overlooking Pittwater bay. 4. The builder had to also construct special stairs etched directly into the landscape. This was so the tenants can access the granny flat from the secondary (parallel) road at the rear of the property.

 The Design

The Owner wanted to enjoy the panoramic views from virtually anywhere within the granny flat. We came up with a 60 square metre design which was ideal for this property. The design is of an open plan layout and is based on our Cabin Design. It’s fair to say that it’s the simplicity of this design which works well. As you can see from the photos, not many builders can boast the ability to erect a dwelling of this quality and in such terrain. The views form this Avalon granny flat are indeed worth the effort. The northern beaches can certainly be proud of this beautiful granny flat. So if you’re building a granny flat anywhere in the Northern Beaches; Pittwater, Clovelly, Curl Curl, Mona Vale, Warriewood, Narrabeen, Narraweena,  Collaroy, Dee Why, Brookvale, Allambie Heights, Frenchs Forest or Manly, just give us a call.
