How You Can Have a Luxurious Two Storey Home on a Narrow Lot

A common misconception about narrow lots is that you have to compromise on the quality of your home design to fit everything in, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, when intelligently designed narrow lot homes can capitalise on the allotted space and create a beautiful home for you and your family that presents luxury inside and out. Here’s how InVogue makes the most of your narrow lot when designing your home.

The Main Advantages of Narrow Lots and Building Up

So, what is a narrow lot? Narrow lots are exactly what they sound like: smaller, tight blocks with limited square meterage to build or extend in the future. Fortunately, double storey homes and narrow lots are a match made in heaven, where you won’t have to compromise on luxury or space. Building up and across two floors is the perfect way to take advantage of a skinnier lot, making the available space work for you and your needs. And there are some benefits in choosing to build a two storey on a narrow lot, including:

1. Location

The great thing about building on a narrow lot is that you can have your pick of where you live. When it comes to choosing a block of land, location is one of the most important factors to consider, especially for homeowners with children. But sometimes in desirable suburbs close to great amenities like top schools and childcare, there’s limited land available. So by choosing a smaller lot, you’re more likely to be able to squeeze into the suburb of your choosing.

2. Lock and Leave

Because there’s less square meterage, there’s usually less upkeep and general maintenance required with a narrow lot. That means less work for you and less chores for the kids, freeing up everyone’s time for the more exciting things in life, like family togetherness and fun activities. It also means that you can enjoy a lock and leave lifestyle. Whether it’s a family holiday during school break or weekend getaway for mum and dad, now you don’t have to worry about simply packing up and leaving with a narrow lot.

3. Chance to get Creative

Finally, building on a narrow lot lets you maximise your block space and design an innovative and distinctive double storey home for you and your family with enough room for now and also for future growth. And if you’re looking for a unique design that stands out from the crowd, a narrow lot design by InVogue provides a fantastic opportunity to collaborate, get creative and come up with an innovative way to use the space.
