This granny flat was converted from a rendered brick pergola into a stunning 1×1 retreat. No wonder we are known as the granny flat design expert and builder in the south west.
Who says granny flats have to be boring and pokey? (Not this granny flat design builder in the Margaret River region!)
As featured on Houzz, this stunning 1×1 granny flat was converted from an existing structure in the back yard to a stylish and functional home-away-from-home for the property-owner’s parents… Prepare to be amazed!
Project: 70m2 1 bed 1 bath granny flat with high-quality finishings, innovative design details, and spacious living and outdoor entertainment areas.
It began with a phone call from Tony (the father of the property owner), and an instant rapport developed as Tony explained his situation — he and his wife visit their daughter in Margaret River every year, but the time had come to create a separate space to give her and her family some privacy.
Tony envisioned a plan utilising a closed-in brick pillar pergola adjacent to the existing garage. Given they visit for three months at a time, the plan was a little more “luxury” that the standard granny flat — so the whole place needed to be custom-built all the way.
No problem. To help them along, Gav finalised designs that embraced Tony’s ideas, got them through Shire planning, and even agreed to build on a cost-plus basis.
We are proud to say that this is another project where Leimac Building helped our clients hit their estimated budget on target.
- a raised ceiling, tailor-designed to Tony’s vision,
- designer wood fire,
- up-market finishings and solid timbers,
- polished concrete floor,
- tailor-made kitchen bench / dining table,
- his-and-hers wardrobes in the bedroom,
- ducted air-conditioning (even with an outlet to the bathroom).
You would have to agree this is a beautiful granny flat, right? We’re very proud of it, and happy to have been able to help Tony build a granny flat to his vision.
