Dual Occupancy Builder Adelaide

What is a duplex house?

A duplex home and a dual occupancy home are essentially the same thing. Becoming a dual occupancy builder in Adelaide means building multiple properties on the same block of land. Dual occupancy homes can mean anything from a granny flat to a series of units on the one title. At Metricon Homes, we build dual occupancy homes in Adelaide that are single storey and double storey designs with a shared wall. This helps you maximise the land and leave yard space for extra things like swing sets and swimming pools. DualOcc by Metricon is one of the reasons Australian families have been trusting Metricon to build their dream homes for more than 40 years. We also have a range of other building options to help you reach your property goals, including.

What are the benefits of a dual occupancy design?

Building a dual occupancy home in Adelaide has a range of benefits for all kinds of home buyers. Having a modern home brings with it a lot of benefits in itself. The latest features and fixtures and contemporary floorplans are attractive to both home buyers and renters. When you build a dual occupancy home in Adelaide, we can set you up an appointment with Studio M to choose the fixtures, finishes and features that suit your style. Dual occupancy homes also allow you to make the most of your investment in your block of land. Essentially, you can have two homes on the one block. This allows extra flexibility. You can live in one and rent out the other. That allows you to have a brand-new home and offset some of the construction costs. Or you can rent them both out. Putting a modern single storey or double storey dual occupancy home on the market will certainly attract interest from a lot of potential tenants.
