The Station: Studio Granny Flat Or Chalet

studio granny flat for short term accommodation

Simple yet effective studio granny flat

This simple yet effective studio granny flat / chalet design is the best value “granny flat” in Western Australia. In fact, it is possibly the only fully-built turn-key design for less than $100K in the state.


This is a compact studio design granny flat, garden chalet, or independent living unit.

It is popular with clients seeking quality-built, cost-effective tourist accommodation or back yard granny flat developments. Or, it could simply be a “getaway” cabin for those who like “glamping” by the river.


Double entry doors open directly into the light and airy studio living / bed space, with a small kitchenette and robe located discreetly behind a dividing wall. The well-appointed bathroom is spacious, and with the right fittings and finishes could be as luxurious as you design it to be.

This is a free-standing chalet and can be positioned to face north no matter which direction your view – all that’s required is to strategically place windows to take advantage of wherever the view may be!


Until we assess your block, we can only give you a ballpark build price:

Assuming minimal site works, we aim to build this to suit any block in the Margaret River region from $99K.

Again, every site is different, and every owner’s preferences and requirements are different, so these prices are indicative only. They are also subject to change depending on supplier and market conditions.
