Cottage lot homes (also referred to as ‘narrow lot’ homes) are not only an affordable option for first home buyers who have an ideal location in mind, but also for those looking to get the most out of their block of land. These homes are especially designed to fit on narrower blocks and are becoming increasingly popular in Perth’s new estates as it maximises your space perfectly.
Some developments in Perth may require the location of the garage to be positioned at the rear, with direct entry into the home. These are the rear lane cottage lots, which will feature the front entrance at the front of the block, and the garage accessed off a rear laneway.
Whether you have a longer lot with a narrow frontage or want to make the best use of your outdoor space, cottage lot homes are perfect if you are looking for a low maintenance lifestyle at home.
See four great advantages of building a cottage lot home:
Practical and highly functional design
Modern cottage lot homes are designed to make great use of space. Optimised with an open plan layout, today’s cottage-style homes offer a spacious feel while still remaining cosy and comfortable.
Easy care and low maintenance
If you are looking for low maintenance living and a more ‘me time’ lifestyle, a cottage lot home allows you to enjoy your time off without the chores of endless cleaning and gardening.
Little details make the difference on enhancing street appeal for cottage lot homes. Designed to fit in narrower blocks, you won’t need a massive landscaping plan to create a beautiful exterior. Adding a contrasting colour to your front entrance and planting a small garden bed will create a beautiful and welcoming first impression.
Save money on decorating
You won’t need to spend much to make your cottage home look stylish. With a smaller cottage home you will be less likely to over-shop when space is a priority.
