25 May 2020

Corner blocks let you get creative with the design of your home by providing dual frontage and enabling you to showcase your individuality.

There are many positives that come out of buying a corner block. Here are our top 5:

1. Let in the Light

One of the great benefits of buying a corner block is design flexibility. With two frontages to the street you have greater options to chase that northern aspect maximising your passive solar design. That means more light in your home when you want it and better ventilation as well as keeping it cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

2. More Privacy

If you don’t like the idea of being surrounded by other homes and looking into your neighbours living space, then you’ll love the idea of a corner block. A corner block means you have fewer neighbours, which means a greater sense of space, privacy and relaxed living.

3. House Proud

If you’re building your dream home, it makes sense that you want to create something you’re proud of. With a corner block providing two facades you can really show off your house and landscape design.

This is a great opportunity for you and your architect to come together and create something fantastic!

4. Bigger Block

Sometimes buying a corner block means getting more land for your money. Corner blocks can allow more outdoor opportunities, be that for gardening or play space for the kids.

5. Flexible Design

After considering the slope, shape, size and any easements, a corner block allows often provides more flexibility with the design of your home e.g. driveway location, aspect, front entrance and courtyard area.

Just remember, when discussing the positioning of your future home with your architect and builder, it’s important to understand what building regulations and specifications are required by the local council.

Happy Building!
