Owners and investors everywhere are building granny flats to increase their home’s value. A well-designed granny flat is a huge selling point in today’s market not just for the extra space, but also for the additional income stream of renting your flat to students, singles and tourists. 

Whatever your needs, our modern layouts prioritise comfort, style and quality to deliver a chic, practical granny flat extension with a lifetime of uses. 

In this blog, we’ll walk you through five granny flat designs Sydney-siders will love. But first, let’s take a look at the cost of building a granny flat in Sydney.

Is building a granny flat cost-effective in Sydney?

If you’re exploring how much building a granny flat costs in Sydney, always consider the long-term practical and financial benefits that a granny flat adds to your home. 

Granny flats are a hot selling point for homeowners that want to future-proof their new home. A granny flat can be a new dwelling for your in-laws, a future bedroom for your children or just an extra place for guests to stay. You can even start your next side hustle and transform your granny flat into an Airbnb! 

Plus, investors love granny flats because of their versatility — a granny flat can be rented separately, creating two income streams on one property. 

At Montgomery Homes, we want all our clients to make the most of their budgets. Our modern granny flat designs are made to give you the best long-term returns, with designs that can be seamlessly integrated alongside your new home build.
