Opting for narrow lot homes in Perth? No problem!
At Move Homes, we have over 30+ customisable home designs for all types of lots and block sizes.
A common misconception about narrow blocks is that you can’t fit much or you need a small home design. But you’ll be surprised! In fact, there are endless possibilities! You can opt for either 3 or 4 bedrooms and still have a theatre, walk-in-pantry and more. Our custom home designs allow you to create a space that’s tailored for you. Whether you’d like a huge kitchen, a strategically placed alfresco or a home theatre in your narrow block Perth home – we’re here to help!
With a vast range of home designs suitable for all block shapes, sizes, budgets and lifestyles, Move Homes offers affordable, desirable and lively solutions for each new Perth home buyer. If you want a minimalist floorplan or if you want to exchange a space for another, our Move Homes team can work with you to customise our existing designs or help you create your own floorplan for your dream home.
Sometimes, narrow lots do not mean you need to compromise on space. Our 10m wide home designs are popular for First Home Buyers who want an affordable narrow block, but also room to grow in terms of family members or new spaces. Narrow lot homes are also a good choice for those who want to downsize. It is common for the depth to be between 25m to 30m, which is why we have many designs. In fact, some of our homes have a Theatre, Walk-in-Linen and a fourth bedroom! If you are interested in exploring narrow lot home designs, please get in touch with Move Homes. You can also browse our other home designs to get an idea of what your home can look like if you prefer to custom-build your new home.
A narrow lot size lets you have the opportunity to be innovative and creative with how you can design your floor plan to maximise your space or use it to your preference. With a narrow house design, you can also find downsizing to be at your advantage since you’ll be able to shake off old or excess material things that you’ve been dying to get rid of but are just too unmotivated to accomplish.
Compared to bigger lot sizes, narrow block homes in Perth are more affordable given their square metre. Running a home with a narrow block also costs less since you do not need to spend too much on heating and air conditioning.
Living in a narrow block means you have more opportunities to reduce your carbon footprint. With smaller homes, you can consume less electricity and as well as reduce your household’s consumption of natural resources such as water and food especially if you are only living with few people at home.
In a narrow block house plan and home design such as The Willow, you can still have the luxuries available to bigger lot sizes such as a large ensuite and a walk-in wardrobe (as well as a home theatre!). You also do not even need to squeeze your laundry room into your bathroom, kitchen or garage. In this narrow lot Perth home, you can even have an all-fresco or porch as well as a double garage. One of the 3 single bedrooms can even be converted to a room of your choice including a library/home office, an art studio or workshop or a personal gym.
This floorplan is just one of Move Homes’ available home designs for narrow lot homes in Perth.

If you want to get an actual feel of how it is to live in a narrow lot home, we have display homes in Perth which you can visit by appointment.
Building a custom home on a narrow lot may seem rather daunting, which is why we are here to help!

Otherwise, please feel free to contact our team for answers to any of your questions!
Most buyers choose a narrow home design because the land price is cheaper. But, the other benefit is that narrow blocks are usually found in high-demand areas. For example, close to train stations and overlooking parks are common locations.
One of our top tips is to incorporate storage into your home. For example, extend the laundry bench and add in kitchen drawers and overhead cupboards. Plus, high ceilings and using light colours also creates a more spacious feel to your home. You can check out our Handy Home Hints blog post for more ideas!
If you are looking at a cottage block, it is likely that you will have a double garage located at the back of your home. But, if your garage is located at the front, it will depend on your frontage. Most 10m blocks will fit a double garage, but a 6m width will only fit a single garage.
No. The cost of your home depends on its size and the items you put in it, regardless of whether it’s one of our standard designs or a custom.
You can design your home exactly how you want it! If you’ve been looking at established homes and are frustrated by their size or layout, you can finally get the space you need.
Absolutely! Many of our clients modify one of our narrow block house plans to suit their needs. This could be adding in a scullery, amending the bedrooms, or reconfiguring the Master Suite.
You don’t have to design your new home from scratch. Check out our 30+ home designs to see what you like. And just like Frankenstein, we will create a design mixed with all the best bits of your choosing.
