Open Plan Living: North Manly


A single level home to provide easy access to a level rear yard. Spacious open plan living areas opening to covered rear alfresco. Build a 60m² granny flat/workshop in the rear yard without compromising the look of the home.


Unique Aspects

  • Fitting a large 4 bedroom home and a 60m² granny flat on a North Manly block without over developing the site
  • High sloping ceilings to central living area and rear alfresco flood these areas with an abundance of natural light
  • Large eaves keep the hot summer sun off windows and also keeps any rain off the rear alfresco, allowing the space to be used in all weather conditions



These clients watched another house being built by Peninsula Homes in a nearby street but thinking a custom designed home would be too costly, they didn’t call us. Fortunately, they eventually spoke to the owner of the home being built who told of their good experience. Once we accessed the brief, we were able to design and build a stunning custom home within the client’s budget requirements.



“…being able to visit the site and feel that we were really involved in every aspect of the build. Paul and Steve were always contactable and kept us in the loop throughout the whole building process!”
