Get the Most Out of a Narrow Lot Homes

Narrow Lot Homes - Como

Central Avenue Homes have been building custom designed homes in Perth and surrounding areas for over 20 years.

Block sizes

The Australian dream of owning a large home with a huge backyard is dwindling. Average block size in Perth has steadily decreased since 2008. This is because developers are increasing the amount of blocks of land released in each section. In June 2015 the average block size was 411 square metres.

Because developers are releasing smaller blocks of land Nan and Pop’s are subdividing the their backyards lots are getting smaller. Unfortunately a lot of backyard developers don’t get proper advice and a lot of the works are not done correctly.

Home designs to suit difficult and narrow lots are now becoming very popular.

Choosing Central Avenue Homes

When choosing Central Avenue Homes to design and build your home, you will get an original design to suit your lifestyle and budget without compromising your dreams.

Each site is assessed individually for provisional sum items including

  • Earthworks
  • Storm water
  • Retaining – if required
  • power run
  • water run
  • sewer run
  • Concrete pump – if required

Taking advantage of natural light

Even if your home is built on a narrow lot, the inside doesn’t have to feel small, dark or cramped. Central Avenue Homes pays particular attention by taking advantage of natural light. We make sure the living spaces feel open and connected with the outdoor spaces. Single storey homes with high or recessed ceilings make living areas appear roomier.  Skylights allow natural light to  areas where there are no windows or glass doors.

Creating a site responsive design

Central Avenue Homes will make sure that the slope of your block, the way it faces and surroundings are all considered when designing and pricing your new home.

Natural light and cross ventilation will make your home more comfortable in the areas that need it most. Housing density is increasing and, it’s important to consider neighbouring properties and the impact on our living areas. We need to be more creative with smaller building areas.

Central Avenue Homes has the team that can provide you with a custom designed home to enhance your block’s potential.

Change the way you think about your home design

In the past, home builders wanted large four bedroom homes with and formal areas that could be closed off. Open plan living increased in popularity and kitchens, meals, living and dining areas now combined. A major issue with large open plan living is the cost and practicality of heating and cooling these homes.

Central Avenue Homes has changed the design concept by creating a design for YOU. We take into account your family and lifestyle and design a functional and innovative space for your new home.
