5 Reasons Why our Lotus Design is our Most Popular House and Granny Flat Combo

If you’re searching for a house and granny flat, you can’t go wrong with the single storey Lotus, one of our most popular designs.

Versatile and beautiful, it meets the brief for those looking for a second income, as well as families wanting to accommodate elderly parents or older independent children. It’s a great size and will fit on a block with a 15 metre or more frontage.

These are some of the reasons it’s so loved as a house and granny flat combo.

1 – Choice of Facades

Like all of Lily Homes’ designs, the Lotus comes in a choice of five different facades. So whether you’re looking for something traditional or contemporary, there’s plenty of choice.

And of course you can personalise it further through your selection of colours for exterior materials. Landscaping will also add a unique touch to the home.

2 – Privacy

The granny flat in the Lotus design is tucked away behind the double garage to the main house. This ensures a level of privacy and security that many families are searching for.

So if you have elderly parents or an older child who wants to maintain their independence but still be close by, the discrete design of the Lotus is perfect. From the front, your home will still look like a single storey design, but it will really be two homes in one.

3 – Bedroom Space

Clients also love the space and versatility of the Lotus design. The main home has a master bedroom with its own ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, plus three other bedrooms. The granny flat has a master bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and direct access to the bathroom plus one other bedroom.

The beauty of the design is that any extra or unwanted bedroom space can be utilised for other purposes. Clients have used bedroom space for everything from theatre rooms to home offices and personal gyms.

4 – Open Plan Living

The living areas of both the main home and granny flat are also spacious, with the open plan design making the space appear bigger.

Kitchens with bench space and family/dining areas flowing off them mean the Lotus is very family friendly, and perfect for entertaining.

5 – Separate Outdoor Areas

The main home of the Lotus has an alfresco area accessible from the kitchen and living area. And the granny flat also has its own small patio where occupants can sit and relax while enjoying some fresh air.

Being on opposite sides of the design, these outdoor areas can be enjoyed with a degree of privacy. So whether you’re renting out the space to strangers, or housing elderly parents or older children, both households can still enjoy their own outdoor space.

The Lotus is a well thought-out design that looks and feels amazing. It’s the house and granny flat choice that has proved to be our most popular design.
