Home Living : September 16 2008
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, September 16, 2008 5 Options for smarter overhauls » ADVERTISING FEATURE When you have an older-style house sitting on a large block of land there are many options to optimise your investment. Binet Homes has recently finished building a duel occupancy dwelling on a property at Turramurra. The original 1930s house was still habitable, but it needed a lot of work to bring it up-to-date. The owner engaged Binet Homes to build two properties on the huge block. Binet Homes sales consultant Rodney Binet says there are a number of alternatives to the simple knock down and rebuild option. ''When the land size allows, and if a house is in good enough condition to keep, a second property can be built on the block,'' he said. ''Or if a family wants to be unencumbered they can contract Binet Homes to knock the house down and rebuild two new homes. ''The family can move into one and sell the other. ''There are many alternatives that will enable owners to free up their asset in the property,'' he said. At the Turramurra property the owner had Binet Homes knock down the existing house to build two magnificent two-storey houses. The land size is about 1600 sq m -- individual councils have different minimal standards for building dual occupancy. However, this block lent itself beautifully to building the two prestige homes, both of which are now for sale. To discuss options and to inspect the two newly completed master built homes call at 5 and 5A Murdoch St, Turramurra on Saturday and Sunday each weekend between 10.30am and 11.30am or call Binet Homes 9868 3222.
