In addition, we also make full use of the available light to create the feeling of openness and airiness in all narrow block homes in Sydney that we work on.

Let Us Help You Maximise Your Space

At Better Built Homes, we believe that narrow block house designs can work for everyone looking to maximise their available space and get great a value for money home.

We often work with busy families, professionals, retirees and downsizers who don’t need or even want an oversized house. In fact, many people tell us what they really want is a beautiful home, and a great lifestyle without the maintenance that can come with larger house sizes

We have also found that new home builders are often surprised to learn that many of the features they love such as extra living areas, or spacious rooms and kitchens can be achieved with good design.

Who doesn’t love the charm of the town houses and terrace homes of yesteryear? Mostly found in cosmopolitan inner-city suburbs, these narrow houses were the perfect solution for their time and ours.

After all, with so many commuters travelling long distances to work, the demand for narrow block designs has increased exponentially over the past few years. In some cases affordability is a factor however many prefer the endless entertaining possibilities a narrow block affords without the added work of large lawns and gardens.

But narrow house blocks aren’t just about convenience or affordability, they’re increasingly a lifestyle choice as people around the world try to live more sustainably and find balance in their already busy lives. Still, many buyers struggle to find a quality range of narrow-lot home designs in Sydney

We’re the Experts in Building a House on a Narrow Block

We work with many families, all at different stages of life, who tell us what they really want is a beautiful home, and a great lifestyle without the maintenance that can come with larger house sizes. We also find that these same families are often surprised to learn that they can enjoy many of the conveniences of larger homes, without necessarily scaling up in size or price.

At BBH, our narrow block designs focus on maximising your land and creating a sense of openness while also ensuring a functional and efficient space, with no “dead areas”.

Bianco 18 (163.88 sq m)

This versatile space has potential as a prayer room or craft room. There is no shortage on storage with this creative floor plan that seems to have thought of everything. The kitchen, dining and family spaces are all connected, yet somehow there is still space for a separate living area. All within 163.88 sq m.
