Many home buyers put corner blocks in the “too hard bin” because they think corner home designs are too small. But did you know that building on a corner block is easier than you think?
Here at Move Homes, we provide clients with two options. The first is that you can choose from our standard home designs and make the changes that you want. This could be swapping the garage or Alfresco areas to increase your backyard space. Or perhaps it’s amending the front and secondary elevations. You can check out our home designs here to see which one you like the most.
The second option is that we can create a custom home design to suit that exact block. This is common for corner blocks that have big truncations or retaining walls.
If you’re looking for home design ideas for a corner block, you’ve come to the right place.
Did you know that our Lefkada and Serpentine display homes were built on corner blocks? The Lefkada tapers towards the rear, while the Serpentine has a garage facing the secondary street. Meanwhile, the Innovator is suited to a 15 x 30m block, but for many corner blocks we can make minor amendments to the garage location.
We took a cheeky visit to this South Guildford home before it was finished and it looks amazing! As a corner block with a rear garage, we had to design something completely out of the box for these clients. We also wanted to capture the natural light in the living area and separate the area from the minor bedrooms.
Corner blocks are often larger than traditional blocks, so you have more space for the kids to play outside. Plus, you only have neighbours on one side instead of two.
Some corner blocks will need planning approval depending on what the local council is. It is you builder’s responsibility to check if your home design needs planning approval.
The garage location on a corner block can either be at the front of the home or at the side. The location will depend on the Local Development Plan or other relevant documentation that stipulates where the garage needs to be.
