The Granny Flat Building Experts

Stroud Homes Brisbane South Residential has special expertise in building attached granny flats and are able to provide clients with an attachment which fits seamlessly with most of the Stroud Homes designs.

“We have seen an increase in Granny Flats being added, at the same time of new home construction,” says Brisbane South Residential builder Peter Simpson about the trend.

You can add an attached granny flat to many of Stroud’s new home designs or opt for a stand alone dwelling.

New Families

The additional living space that any granny flat build creates is the perfect way of accommodate guest or housing family members who’d like to be conveniently close, such as grandparents or adult children, but still want their privacy.

“The families that are purchasing the homes with attached granny flats are new families with parents that would like a new home and want to be close to their grandchildren,” says Peter.

“It’s also a benefit for the grandparents if they wish to travel – they have someone looking over their home while they are away, a real WIN-WIN.”

The Wildflower 190

A popular design, the Wildflower 190 with an attached granny flat, starts off at $534,500 on a large traditional block of land in Flagstone.

At the moment this includes front landscaping as well as Stroud Homes Brisbane South’s essentials inclusions.

The Wildflower 190 with granny flat is an exceptional home featuring a main home with a double garage, four bedrooms including a large master bedroom with a spacious ensuite and walk-in-robe.

The granny flat includes an additional bedroom, kitchen, living area and combined laundry and bathroom.

One of the best things about the attached granny flats is how they integrate with the overall home. From the outside you will not even notice the house contains a separate dwelling.

And conveniently, by altering the orientation of the flat, you can either maximise privacy or increase interaction between the occupants.

Some of the  additional advantages of building attached granny flats include:

  • Cost: Attached granny flats are very cost effective in terms of construction. Everything is under the same structure and council application.
  • Customise: Custom design your own granny flat to suit your personal needs and requirements.
  • Security: Enables you to easily and conveniently keep an eye on loved ones.
  • Privacy: Both parties have their own homes, which means they both retain their own privacy.
  • Baby sitters: Built in baby sitters, allowing all generations to spend quality time together.
  • Future planning: Providing a ready-made home for when the children are older, or form a great home office.
  • Re-sale: Granny Flats are an in demand property type, if you decide to sell in the future. This addition will increase your properties value significantly.
