Narrow Block Home Designs

Narrow block home design can be challenging and requires innovative and creative thinking from both you and your builder. The emerging trend in new home estates in Sydney is the release of narrow blocks.

The objective is to ensure you have the right design for your narrow block, create a home that meets your lifestyle needs and maximises the use of space.

A narrow block is typically defined as having a frontage under 13 metres. Knowing the council regulations and other living considerations is an important element. For example, blocks with less than a 12.5 metre frontage can build right to the boundary but other considerations that can influence your design can include:

  • Back of house access
  • Location of utility services
  • Position of air-conditioning units
  • Position of water tanks
  • Modify Your Narrow Block Home Design.

A narrow block does not necessarily mean a small home. There is no reason to compromise on the space and functionality of your home when a purpose-design can give you a lifestyle to suit. An intelligent contemporary design on a block that is flat or sloping, long or short is just the beginning in narrow block design.

Ansa Homes “no one size fits all” attitude will assist you in defining your needs and matching those to a creative design.

The Phoenix Double Storey Home design is an intelligent design and perfectly suited to a 10m wide block. Innovative and beautiful, with the Phoenix you have the option of adding or removing certain aspects of the house to allow for a more open plan living or to provide your family with more rooms like a study nook – without compromising on space.

The current design meets all CDC building requirements and so will allows fast approval from regulatory authorities.

Unlike many narrow frontage designs, the Phoenix incorporates a double garage with direct access to your home’s utility room and to the side of the house. You will also have enough area for storage cupboards and for a workbench for the home handyman.

The utility room area is a good size, enough for laundry facilities, linen storage and a downstairs powder room. You will have the option in the powder room to have an additional shower.

Recognising that families entertain at home, the open plan living and kitchen areas are supplemented by a generous alfresco providing an even greater feeling of space. The large pantry at the back of the kitchen also provides direct access to the alfresco.

A study nook whilst providing a quiet and secluded area for children studying is in close proximity to the kitchen and living areas – something parents see as being a real advantage. This area can also serve as a work area given that on occasions there is a need to work from home or to take care of home administration tasks.

Upstairs are 4 generous bedrooms with built-in robes that maximise the use of the available space. The main bedroom has a walk-in-robe as well as an ensuite.

The Phoenix double storey home design is the perfect home for narrow frontage blocks. It gives you all the features and facilities to make your home comfortable – value that recognises your investment in your family’s future.
