Award Winning Brisbane Duplex Builders

With two conjoined houses occupying a single block, duplex designs offer you the ability to maximise the value of your land. With close-knit and compact living becoming increasingly popular, especially in metropolitan areas, dual occupancy is the smart way to ensure the greatest investment potential for you. As award winning Brisbane builders of groundbreaking duplex home designs throughout Brisbane, we specialise in the delivery of dual occupancy properties that accommodate your style preferences, your living requirements and your budget. For further information about our duplex offerings, contact us today to arrange for an obligation-free consultation.

Duplex Home Design

Home builders will sometimes claim to have a set of standard duplex blueprints that can be applied to different plots of land, but the reality is, such blueprints are simply not feasible. Building a property that contains two houses side-by-side, presents unique challenges that aren’t typical of ordinary single home designs. Dual-occupancy properties require a custom design solution that takes into consideration such factors as the style, size and complexity of your land plot, your goals for the property and your budget constraints. Working in close collaboration with our in-house design team, we’ll create you the ultimate dual living home you have always dreamed of.

    The Advantages of Building a Duplex Home

    The cost of building yourself a magnificent new duplex abode in Brisbane is less expensive than you might imagine, and the investment qualities are highly appealing. Building a duplex home provides a number of key benefits to investors, including:

    • Privacy – although each property shares a central wall, there are no shared rooms or entrances. Each dwelling is completely independent of its adjacent property, fitted with its own separate amenities, bedrooms, yards and in most cases, garages as well.
    • Income potential – whether you’re looking to build a duplex home and live in it, while renting out the adjoining property, or buying it purely for an investment with the intention of leasing both dwellings, duplex housing offers strong investment opportunities.
    • Better than a granny flat – when it comes to selling, duplex homes are typically much more attractive to home buyers, than an ordinary house and granny flat combination is
    • Strata title is optional – the option to have no strata title enables you to enjoy a greater rental income

    Is a Duplex Home Design Suitable for My Block of Land?

    Before you consider having a duplex constructed, there are a number of issues that need to be taken into account, such as:

    • Council zoning laws – your block of land must be larger than the minimum required
    • Drainage – it will need to be established that your land won’t create drainage or stormwater issues

    All local councils have building guidelines readily available for you to view, to ensure that there is no confusion over compliance requirements.

    The Best Way to Profit from Duplex Home Ownership

    Multiple properties on a single plot of land will typically strengthen your equity. Creating subdivisions and constructing multiple low upkeep residences uncovers a wide range of money-making possibilities, including:

    • Renting each property out to enjoy multiple incomes streams
    • Sell each property outright for a significant lump sum return
    • Live in one property and sell the other
    • Live in one property and rent the other out to help pay off your mortgage sooner

    Single or Two Storey Duplex Homes?

    Both single and double storey duplex homes have their own set of unique pros and cons. Single storey homes are desirable for retirees or couples who either don’t have children or whose children have since moved out of the home. Families also typically favour single storey residences as staircases can be a burden where infants and younger children are concerned. Also, single storey homes attract superior build times, which is a big advantage for those who are keen to move into their wonderful new home faster or who simply wish to start profiting from their investment sooner.

    Double storey duplex properties are space savers, first and foremost, making them ideal for densely populated areas and also for maximising your income return, if you’re going to be renting your properties out. Beyond this, the extra storey provides better views and for parents with teenage children, the top and bottom storeys can be great for offering a sense of privacy.

    Advantages of Custom Designed Homes

    You have unlimited choices – with a project home, the building process is very rigid, with little room for variation. Those who desire to have something that deviates even slightly from the pre-existing floor plans, soon learn that doing so brings about a big increase in the total cost. With a custom built home however, freedom of choice is the essence of entire experience. Instead of being shown what the available designs are, you tell us what you want us to design for you. Your ideas and input influences the final home design and our in-house team is tasked with transforming your ideas into a wonderful, liveable new luxury residence.

    You have the ability to decide every feature of your new home, including its architectural style (Contemporary, Art Deco, Edwardian, Georgian, Victorian, to name a few – it’s your choice), the interior and exterior colour schemes (with expert guidance by our interior designer), along with the lighting, layout, amenities and everything in between.

    They’re very reasonably priced – at first glance, a project home may seem like a very attractive deal, but home buyers soon learn that costs quickly spiral significantly, once optional extras are factored in or floor plans are adjusted. Once this is understood, buyers soon realise that custom homes represent real value for money. During your initial meeting with us, we discuss your budget with you and give you an idea of the size and quality of home that you can expect to have built for you in your price bracket. At Unique Homes, we work on fixed price contracts, so the price you’re quoted on the contract agreement will always remain the same, unless you choose to make additional changes to your design at a later date.

    Environmentally friendly design – while it’s true that the majority of homes we construct are at the larger end of the scale spectrum, but we ensure each one of them is eight-star energy efficient. Each home is fitted with a range of eco-friendly innovations, including rainwater catchment systems and grey water recycling mechanisms, while employing high quality insulation and building materials that improve comfort and reduce the reliance on power-consuming electrical goods.

    The homes are intelligently designed to harness the cool incoming breeze, while employing energy efficient lighting solutions and appliances that require less power to operate. All of these green inclusions deliver a home that reduces its carbon footprint and saves you money on your electricity bills.
