Granny Flats are on the upswing – with flexible, endless design options modern granny flats have become stylish and comfortable mini-homes.
Not only do they work as an elegant place for Nanna to live, granny flats can be used as a home office, art/music studio, playroom, teenage retreat, guest house or even a man cave!
Freestanding or detached granny flats
Freestanding granny flats offer the most privacy for potential renters or family members who will be living there but they don’t offer the flexibility an extension onto the main house provides.
Attached granny flats or extensions
Attached granny flats or extensions are under the same roof of the main house. They usually have their own entrance and can also be accessed with a linked door, it can be used as an extra guest or entertainment space or you can simply lock the door separating the areas should you wish to rent it out in future.
Versatility of granny flats
Although highly suitable for aging people (parents, grandparents) because they can keep their independence, they are highly versatile in terms of who can occupy them. They can be for anyone these days; in-laws, visiting friends, kids as they ‘move out’ of home or even as an easy investment property for extra income.
Ask yourself, what will you initially be using your new Granny Flat for? Will that change in ten years’ time? Who will be living in the granny flat?
These things will help you pick the smartest choice for you and your family.
