Don’t be put off by the size of your block of land. Did you know that a zero lot house design can not only be built right up to the edge of a property’s boundary but can ultimately maximise the use of a small or narrow lot? You can make the most of your property when you know the secret to great house designs. Want to know more?
Uncovering the design of a zero lot line home
A zero-lot-line house, often considered a duplex, is the design of choice where property owners are seeking ways to make the most of their lot size. To maximise space, houses are designed with greater internal living zones and smaller gardens and are therefore popular amongst locals who don’t have the time nor interest to maintain a patch of lawn. Dixon Homes Canberra offers residents a huge variety of single storey homes. Some are quaint two bedroom designs whilst others provide for up to six-bedrooms with a three car garage. The wide range of floor plans exist to suit all lifestyle requirements. Let’s take a look at a few of the most popular options.
#1 Three bedroom homes with double lock up garages
For a young family seeking a spacious home with a pleasant alfresco outdoor entertaining area, consider the NC5309. For just over $241,000 this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers luxurious living on one level. Suitable for a long, narrow block measuring only 9.5m wide, this house design provides for a double lock-up garage, master bedroom with ensuite and open living covering 176 square metres.
If your land is slightly wider and not as long, take a look at the SL2837. Priced under $260,000, this house design provides for 200 sq.m of spacious living, open living zones that spill out onto an alfresco patio, plus a separate media room. With three bedrooms, or two plus study, and two bathrooms, this is a comfortable yet functional design that makes the most of land that is at least 15m wide.
#2 Five bedroom homes with room to move
Dixon Homes also offers a range of larger house designs, again for narrow or short and wide blocks that accommodate larger families. The SC0203 requires a lot width of 20 metres and offers homeowners 220 square metres of luxury living.
On a single level, enjoy a central family living zone, a meals area that opens onto a great outdoor alfresco entertaining space plus five bedrooms. The master comes with an ensuite. Priced at just under $280,000 this home really allows families to get the most out of their living zones and allows home owners the opportunity to maximise land potential.
Another zero lot line home to look closely at is the SC1212. For just over $300,000 you can enjoy almost 270 sq.m of home space with a huge living area that encompasses a separate living and dining zone from the kitchen, but also a multi purpose room plus a rumpus room. This is a huge house perfectly designed for a lot width of just 16.17 metres. With a double lock up garage and 5 spacious rooms, this is great for a growing family, a young couple who work from home, or a family who loves the extra space for when visitors pop around.
