Old house in Willetton with development potential

The PropertiesThe client owned an old house on a large block in Willetton.
She was frustrated with ongoing maintenance on the home but was hesitant to build due to the timeframe and cost involved.

The ChallengeWe needed to work out exactly what the client wanted to do with the site. She wanted to remain living on the block so the opportunity was for a mixture of owner-occupier and investment purposes.
The project needed to be completed within 12 months to cause minimal disruption and keep the cost down so it would fall within her budget.

The SolutionThe design that suited was to build one large single storey home on the front part of the lot and a smaller second villa at the rear of the site.
The front home would be larger and be personally designed to suit the clients ongoing living needs while the rear unit would be smaller and fitted out for rental purposes.

The OutcomeConstruction of 2 single level villas was completed in 6 months, on budget and well within the timeline.
The client now has a large 4 bed, 2 bath home with plenty of room for her and her extended family as well as a rear 3 bed, 2 bath villa that she can rent out for investment purposes.
We are now in discussion with her to look at future investment opportunities.
