“We positioned the Granny Flat so there was good flow between it and the main house…We understood Lynda’s need to enjoy some privacy and be able to create her own garden.”
On Melbourne Cup day last year, Lynda’s husband sadly lost his battle with cancer. Lynda was facing a future in her 4 bedroom house, alone. Before he died, Lynda and her husband had discussed practical issues relating to her welfare when he was no longer here, including selling the house to move into a unit. Lynda investigated this possibility but was not impressed with the constant drain of body corporate fees and not having a garden to relax in.
Her daughter suggested that together they look at purchasing a home which would be suitable for building a separate, self-contained Granny Flat in the back garden. Together they found an ideal property and prior to purchasing, contacted Lifestyle Granny Flats which they had found on the Internet. A Lifestyle consultant came out the next day and assessed the property as being suitable.
Purchase was completed and after selecting the lowset 2 bedroom ‘Seabreeze’ from a choice of 8 Lifestyle designs, Lynda contracted with them to construct her new home. “We positioned the Granny Flat so there was good flow between it and the main house,” said Nathan Stroud, design Architect for Lifestyle. “We understood Lynda’s need to enjoy some privacy and be able to create her own garden.” Lynda didn’t have to worry about council paperwork, either. Nathan continues, “Once we knew what Lynda wanted, we took care of all council approvals and construction.”
Lynda is now living comfortably and safely in her new home and enjoying regular contact with her daughter, made possible by this lifestyle choice.
“It’s given me the independence I need, plus confidence that when I travel my home will be taken care of. I highly recommend Lifestyle Granny Flats. They gave me fantastic service and took all my particulars into consideration. Even small details such as placement of power points for my computer were attended to. I have referred several of my neighbours to them. You don’t have to be a “Granny” to enjoy the benefits of a Granny Flat!”
