Whether it’s space for extended family, smart property investment or extra rental income, a Duplex home like these designs from Clarendon offer a range of benefits and double your land’s potential
Looking for a way to extend your living options? These duplex designs are perfect.
A duplex offers ways to build for both short-term and long-term use. With inspiring features and clever space usage, they’re perfect for growing families, multi-generational living, first home buyers, downsizers and savvy investors alike.
Why choose a duplex home
The duplex is one of the most versatile ways to build. The designs respond to your unique needs and lifestyle.
For families, a duplex home grows with you as your needs change. For investors, a duplex doubles returns with two homes on the same block. Live in one side while renting the other, keep extended family or aged parents close, while first home buyers can split the cost of a block with friends.
More flexible that a granny flat, one home can be sold individually, or both rented out to generate two incomes.
Clarendon’s duplex homes are available in both single-storey and double-storey layouts. This makes it easy to find a design that caters to both size and accessibility needs.
How to choose the right home design
Choosing the right home design and house plan requires time and dedication. This investment, coupled with careful consultation, will help you make a decision that you’ll be happy with for years to come.
- Think about the size of your ideal home. Do you have children, or are you planning to start a family? Do you like to invite guests over? Do you need your own workspace? Will you need a large kitchen? Write down all these requirements. Order them by their importance to you.
- You will need to assess your potential budget. Meet with your own financial adviser or sit down with your spouse to work out the extent of your budget. Knowing the largest budget you can afford helps you understand your full range of options.
- Once you know your budget, you can start looking at designs. Choose a range from Clarendon Homes that meets your financial and personal criteria, in the importance order you outlined. Compare the home designs and make a list of favourites. Do not forget to view the house plans for each home design. It will give you an idea of how you will be able to organise your space and family life.
- After narrowing down your choice of homes, or to clarify any questions you may have, it’s best to consult with an expert. At this stage, it pays to speak with a consultant, or visit a display home location.
Following these steps will help put you on the journey to finding the ideal duplex for you.
