Dual Occupancy Project

We have a proven track record on providing our clients with a significant return on investment for the right property. We have local council knowledge and experience and have worked with many clients in achieving their goal of adding value to their investment.

An example of how we’ve been able to provide our clients with a significant return on investment from a dual occupancy dwelling is a property located in Lindfield. The idea to build a second dwelling on the block with its own street frontage/access (all within 650m to Lindfield Station) delivered fantastic returns for our client.

Here’s the birds eye view of the property, illustrating both the 899 square metre residence, with the 606 square metre addition (where the new two-storey house will reside):

Some of the comments from a Real Estate Agent regarding the new house on the now dual occupancy site are:

“THE NEW HOUSE on 606sqm is an architecturally designed two storey 5/4/2 house with a versatile floorplan giving the growing family various options. Designed by renowned North Shore architects Playoust Churcher, the classic yet contemporary layout thoughtfully captures the natural light and optimise the air flow. This family home is truly a winner. Interior specifications can be built to personal tastes and budgets.”
