Multi-generational and Dual Living Homes

Enjoy Living Together with Multi-Generational Homes

 

 

The family unit has never been more important than now. The rising cost of housing and the pandemic have brought people together. We’re seeing young adults and older people wanting to enjoy the financial and social benefits achieved through multi-generational homes. Teenagers are opting to stay at home longer to save money, while seniors are moving in with family members for care and support. But living together is not easy, unless you have a well-designed home providing ample space and privacy.

At CJ Homes we’ve developed a range of multi-generational homes designs, offering people stylish independent living under one roof. Our teams of Building Designers and Construction have created many stunning homes ranging from single level acreage style to double storey homes with an extra kitchen, bathroom and living areas.  

Typically these designs include:

  • Master bedroom and ensuite with walk in robes
  • Three to six bedrooms with built in cupboards
  • Two bathrooms and powder room
  • Large spacious family kitchen
  • Butler’s pantry
  • Compact second kitchen
  • Separate large living areas
  • Multipurpose rooms, media and study areas
  • Private patios
  • Alfresco outdoor entertainment area
  • Double lock up garage plus space for additional cars
  • Separate laundry
  • Ample storage for linen
  • Size between 225 and 350 sqm

Some of our popular multigenerational designs include Aramac, Atherton, Bathurst, Bowen, Granada, Karanda, Lennox, El Paso.

Savvy Investors Choose Dual-Living Homes

Dual living or dual occupancy is gaining popularity with savvy investors and young people looking for affordable housing options.  So what is Dual Occupancy?  Essentially, two dwellings are built on a single block of land, under one title.  The main property looks like a typical home with a front entrance and roof but it is in fact divided into two dwellings separated by a fire wall with a private second entrance. Each has individual service connections for energy and water.

Typically our dual-living designs feature three or four bedrooms in the main home, plus two bedroom options in the second dwelling.  Each home will include a kitchen, dining, bathrooms, and lock up garages.  Some of our most cost-effective dual living designs are Capricorn, Opal, Santorini, and Sapphire. 

Our dual-living designs offer fantastic flexibility to achieve privacy and extra income too. Savvy property investors, looking to maximise rental returns, can build new dual living houses and gain double the income, and take advantage of tax depreciation allowances too.
