Dual Occupancy Builder Sydney

Becoming a dual occupancy builder in Sydney can be a great way to make the most from your land. Speak with our dual occupancy consultants about the best way to reach your dual living goals with our stunning home designs.

What is a dual occupancy home?

As a dual occupancy builder in Sydney, we know you’re keen to maximise the investment on your block of land. Dual occupancy homes are properties where two or more homes are built on the one block of land. It can be anything from a granny flat, to semi-detached homes that share a wall, to a series of townhouses. As a dual occupancy builder in Sydney, you can either live in one home and rent out the others, or rent out all of them. Dual occupancy homes can also be a great way to downsize your current property, and create a steady income at the same time. Dual occupancy homes are slightly different to duplex designs in Sydney. While dual occupancy homes are one title, each duplex home is an individual title.

At Metricon Homes, we have a range of contemporary dual occupancy designs that are perfect for families of all shapes and sizes. They’re just one of many home designs that can suit Sydney’s property market and unique topography. As well as house and land packages across Greater Sydney, and the north and south coast, we also offer other key services. KnockDown ReBuild is a service that allows you to build a new home on an existing property. And our Split Level home designs are great for sloping, narrow or corner blocks.

How do you apply for a dual occupancy in Sydney?

Australian families have been trusting Metricon to build their dream home for more than 45 years. Our home designs are contemporary, innovative and practical. They give you space when you want it and privacy when you need it. And with years of experience as a dual occupancy builder in Sydney, we have developed a range of dual occupancy designs that are perfect for investments, for your extended family, and even for multi-generational families. We know home building, and we know Sydney. That’s why we will work alongside you every step of the way to help you reach your dual living property goals. We will work together to understand your block of land, and talk you through the design options that could suit. That includes the features, fittings and fixtures you’re after. Our new home advisors and expert staff will work through the approvals process with you, and keep you informed at all times.

How do dual occupancy homes work?

One of the key focuses of working with you to become a dual occupancy builder is to make the process as simple as possible. When you build with Metricon, we will help you find a range of experts and external suppliers who will help you on your dual living journey. They will independently steer you through the entire process. That can include planning, subdividing and everything in between. Contact us and we can get you started on the journey to creating the dual occupancy homes you’ve always wanted. Being able to take advantage of our years of experience can make a big difference in your dual living journey. But don’t just take our word for it. Our Dual Occ Diaries follow the journey of two Metricon customers from the start to the finish of their dual living journey.

Another way to find out more about becoming a dual occupancy builder in Sydney is to visit our DualOcc display home in Sydney. Our display homes give you a chance to see everything up close, including the contemporary designs and quality features. Our DualOcc display home at Kellyville is the perfect opportunity to see it all. And keep an eye on our Home Truths blog for all the latest information across all our ranges and home designs.

How much does it cost to build a dual occupancy home in Sydney?

Becoming a dual occupancy builder in Sydney is not a one-size-fits-all approach. And costs can be a clear example of that. There are a number of steps and variables between deciding to take the dual living first step, and the build itself. As well as understanding the design, council regulations can change from area to area, and every block of land can be different when it comes to design. That’s where we can help.

Where should you build a dual occupancy home in NSW?

All council areas in Sydney have planning regulations around dual occupancy homes. It can come down to the type of dual occupancy design you want, the planning scheme in the area, and the block of land you have.

In NSW, if your planned DualOcc development meets a series of simplified standards it may be fast-tracked with a Complying Development Certificate. A CDC can pave the way for planning and building permits.
