There's no other way to put in: block sizes are getting smaller. The Great Australian Dream – a quarter-acre block among the gum trees with lots of plum trees – is becoming less likely if you live close to the city. Homebuyers probably won't have room for a Hills Hoist… sacrilegious!
While one option is to move to a regional location, we understand that smaller towns isn't for everyone. Plenty of people love where they live due to the myriad of lifestyle perks, whether it's schools, cafes, restaurants, shops or family. So, they choose smaller parcels of land.
Opting for a smaller block should not impact the functionality of your home – and if it does, your home designer has done something wrong. With options for blocks as narrow as 10 meters, Metricon is one home builder well equipped to build on narrow, inner-city blocks.
Let's take a closer look at what you need to consider when building your brand-new dream home on your narrow block.
