Narrow Block House Designs

Have you bought a narrow block of land? Better Built Homes has the ideal solution for building your dream home on that narrow plot of land you own. Narrow home designs are a growing trend for new land being released and sold in Sydney. Looking to stay ahead of the curve, we have a range of narrow lot home designs with contemporary floor plans that suit even the narrowest of narrow blocks.

Better Built Narrow Home Designs & House Guide

At Better Built Homes, we follow an 8 step building journey to keep things simple for your dream home. Our narrow block house designs for Sydney homes are developed to suit narrow blocks, meaning we haven’t ‘shrunk’ larger floor plans to fit a smaller space.

Each of our modern and unique narrow block homes in Sydney maximises internal and external living areas that make full use of natural light to create a feeling of openness and airiness.

Three Bedroom Home Designs for Narrow Blocks

Metro 17 (160sq m)


If you have a block that might be a tight fit, this could be the house design for you—boasting an innovative and space-saving design that combines practical living with large open plan living. The Metro 17 features family & dining rooms that lead onto the undercover alfresco area. Including three bedrooms, an ensuite and the main bathroom, plus the always-popular galley kitchen, the Metro 17 is ideal for today’s young family.

Sierra 16 (145.48 sq m)


The Sierra 16 is a genuine luxury compact home that offers all of the amenities your family could need, with a few bonus extras. This modern single-storey house boasts a single garage, laundry room, and linen cupboard for your comfort and convenience, alongside a spacious master bedroom with an en-suite and two other bedrooms for kids and teens, each equipped with a built-in wardrobe. Boasting an open plan kitchen and plenty of alfresco space for entertaining, what more could you want in a narrow block home design?

Four Bedroom Home Designs for Narrow Blocks

Ascot 18 (170.96 sq m)


This intelligently contemporary design will fit narrow blocks with ease while maintaining both quality and style. The dining, family and kitchen areas are open and flowing, and the addition of a central study nook creates multi-purpose benefits without taking up much space. Offering four generous bedrooms plus a bathroom and ensuite, your family will have room to grow into for years to come with the Ascot 18.

Arlington 22F (201.52 sq m) 


4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 3 separate large living spaces and a study. Who said narrow blocks don’t offer practical space. Plus, with a choice of traditional or more contemporary facades, even the most style-conscious will be impressed with this spacious yet compact home. This home design features a straight corridor on both storeys for easy access to its sizable rooms. Offering the same timeless aesthetic as many other of our two-storey home concepts, the Arlington 22F is everything a busy family needs. And if anything needs adjusting, you have an almost endless list of choices for the layout and exterior.

Five Bedroom Home Designs for Narrow Blocks

Tiffany Rose 29 (270.45 sq m)


With five bedrooms, three bathrooms and four separate large living spaces, the Tiffany Rose 29 has the look of a grand European home, alongside comforting modern Australian features, such as concrete pillars and stylish panels often found in our facades. And with a sizeable alfresco dining area coupled with all that living space, residents and guests will have plenty of room, regardless of how narrow your plot is.

How to Maximise Space on a Narrow Block of Land?

At Better Built Homes, we understand that homeowners want to get the most value from their narrow homes. Working alongside busy families, professionals, retirees and downsizers who don’t need or even want a large house, Better Built Homes has learned that many people want a beautiful home, and a lavish lifestyle without maintenance can come with larger house sizes.

More often than not, new home builders are surprised to learn that many of their desired features, such as extra living areas or spacious rooms and kitchens, can still be achieved with the right narrow house design.
