As Sydney continues to grow, something’s got to give.
With available land tighter than ever, homeowners are looking to get more from their blocks, with a significant number replacing older single homes with two new ones on the same site.
Known as duplexes, these typically sit side by side or one in front of the other, and have a common wall.
Archicentre general manager Cameron Frazer says “There’s an obvious value proposition around developing a piece of land, given continually increasing land values. It doubles the density on the land but potentially it can more than double its value by putting a second dwelling on it.”
Duplex home designs give you the opportunity to unlock the equity you have in your house and land. With higher density living becoming increasingly acceptable, dual occupancy is providing a framework to maximise the investment in your property.
Imagine being able to remain in your community and build a new home and have an investment within the same land footprint. A duplex designed home gives you the opportunity to knock down your current dwelling and rebuild with a modern home reflective of your personal style.
Champion Homes has for many years offered Australian working families looking to
build a new home the option of building a duplex on their land.
