Multi-Generational Living on the Gold Coast

Multi-Generational Living on the Gold Coast

Dual Living Possibilities

As housing costs increase and demand for land on the southern Gold Coast continues to climb, the Stroud Homes Gold Coast South division finds that more and more families are now looking towards multi-generational living arrangements.

In some cases it’s to house grown children – maybe even with kids of their own, and in other cases clients might be looking to capitalise on a fantastic location by creating a space where visitors can feel at home.

And for some, it is to house an ageing relative. The reasons are as many as the possibilities.

Granny Flats can service a wide range of  family constellations and situations.

But the ‘Granny Flats’ of the past are history and, in their stead, Stroud Homes is drawing innovative solutions to accommodate a wide variety of family shapes, tastes, and budgets.

Stroud’s contemporary dual-occupancy designs range over the entire spectrum – from budget friendly options to spare-no-expense waterfront luxury.

In saying that, all Stroud Homes multi-generational homes share one thing in common: each of the designs is carefully drawn for a particular family, and a particular site. And that makes all the difference.

“At Stroud Homes, we won’t expect you to change how you live to suit one of our existing designs, we’ll amend or redraw – or start completely from scratch – to make sure that you’re getting precisely the home you want,” says Stroud Homes Gold Coast South’s Salesperson Chris Chan.


An issue that should not be ignored in any discussion of multi-generational living is the raft of council regulations which govern their construction. Put simply: it’s… complicated!

“It seems that the council here on the Gold Coast is particularly strict with its rules controlling this space,” says Chris.

“And it’s against that background that we work with our clients to draw homes that will both work for them – and for council,”

“Yes, it’s hard. But it IS do-able.” And if any builder can do it, it is Stroud homes.

The Stroud Homes Gold Coast South team recently created a custom home designed to house four generations. AND a sizeable home-based business.

To be able to help a family into their ‘Forever Home’ makes it more than worthwhile, explains Chris.

Add to standard designs

Take a look at Stroud Homes Gold Coast South’s  Granny Flat page and Dual-Occupancy page, which show how multi-generational living can be added to any one of the standard designs – but that’s just a starting point.

The team listen to your needs and work with you to create a home that works for everyone in your family.
