Dual Occupancy Builder Sydney, NSW

What is a dual occupancy home?

Dual occupancy homes can help you get the most out of your investment in a block of land. Dual occupancy, as it suggests, is where there are two or more homes built on the one block of land. Building a home with a granny flat is an example of a dual occupancy home, as is a shared wall duplex home. They can be single storey or double storey home designs, and include a range of features and fixtures that help them stand out. When you choose Metricon Homes to help you create your dual occupancy home, you’re choosing a partner. We will be with you all the way. We can help you understand whether a dual occupancy home is the right option for your block, and then work alongside you from start to finish to make it all happen. You’ll benefit from our:

  • Experience. DualOcc by Metricon for duplexes is the result of more than 40 years of building homes for Australian families.
  • Record. At Metricon, we are one of Australia’s largest duplex home builders, especially in Greater Sydney, with our DualOcc range.
  • Contemporary designs. Visit any of our display homes to discover our design options and why we’re Australia’s leading home builder.
  • Partnership. Whether you’re a first-time builder or an experienced developer, you’ll benefit from our process and understanding. We’ll make sure your home-building journey is hassle-free.

Is a duplex a single dwelling?

Duplex homes and dual occupancy homes are often mentioned together in the one sentence, as the same thing. And that’s not surprising. Dual occupancy can be the catch-all phrase, but there is a small technicality involved. Duplex designs in Sydney are two homes that share a wall. Both can be on the same or separate titles. That gives duplex home designs in Sydney that little extra bit of flexibility as an investment option. That flexibility includes living in one and renting the other, or renting them both. Duplex designs in NSW, especially Sydney, can be attractive to families looking for an alternative to large established homes. Metricon’s duplex designs, as part of the DualOcc range, include open floorplans and a clever use of space to maximise your investment.

Metricon has a range of other home designs options if you’re looking for an alternative, including:

How do dual occupancy homes work?

Metricon has been partnering with Australians to build dual occupancy and duplex homes since 2006. Since then, we have successfully delivered more than 750 planning permits for our clients. That experience and expertise are all yours from the second you meet with our Development Consultants. From that first meeting through to the day we hand you the keys, we’ll work together as a team. You’ll also have access to our range of leading suppliers and specialists across the state, and inside our offices. The process of becoming a duplex home builder with Metricon includes:

  • The beginning. The first step is discovering where we build. Then we’ll assess your block of land and sit down with you to talk through the suitable options in your council area.
  • Initial contracts. Here we’ll let you know in detail what’s involved and step it out for you so you can see how the plans fit with your budget.
  • Planning details. Metricon will prepare all the permits and drawings for you and shepherd you through the planning process.
  • Final contracts. Once we’ve made any changes needed under the permit approvals, it’s time to sign the final contracts and get building started.
  • Building. We’ll give you updates weekly, and you can visit the site whenever you want.
