Home Living : November 11th 2008
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, November 11, 2008 5 Everyone needs some space HOMELIVING Large single-home blocks are being snapped up for medium-density redevelopments, Housing Industry Association NSW executive director Graham Wolfe says. Mr Wolfe drew attention to a recent $2.16 million sale of a dilapidated cottage on a large inner-city block which is likely be developed into three townhouses. ''There's nothing unusual in this. It is happening in cities all around Australia as the market turns towards medium- density living,'' he says. Mr Wolfe said this was due to a variety of reasons -- smaller families or no families at all, no time to tend gardens, and less financial outlay. ''Even so, most people still crave a little outdoor area in which to soak up the sunshine,'' he says ''And with space at an absolute premium, the patio garden is often the answer.'' But beware, a poorly-designed patio can be gloomy and untidy, Mr Wolfe warns. ''Orientation is important. Maybe you will want the sun in the morning for summer breakfasts and by the time you get back in the evening you will welcome the fact it is in shade, but will this do for other seasons? ''Size is another significant issue. Many patios are too small for comfort. Use all the space at your disposal and plan carefully. If it can't accommodate a table and a couple of chairs comfortably then the patio is too small. ''Once you have established you have sufficient space . . . you can think of adornments, such as discreet flower beds or plants in pots.''
