Long House

Long House Plan

Long House is a 3bedroom 2bathroom plus study nook design, and is best suited to narrow, 10m wide blocks where the long boundary faces north. The design includes a generous verandah that allows winter sun inside, while keeping out summer sun.

The carefully planned interiors mean the house feels spacious inside, and every room enjoys a direct connection to the garden, which is the same size as the building on an ideal lot size of 350m2 or larger (10m x 35m).

Who is the Long House plan for?

With three different designs available – the Short House, Long House and Tall House – our New House Plans are ideal for a range of different homeowners, including:

  • First-home buyers – such as young singles and couples who want to be near their jobs, cafes and restaurants, the beach, places to exercise and meet friends
  • Second-home buyers – including young families who want to live within walking distance of local shops, playgrounds, schools, health services and plenty of public transport options to get to work
  • Empty-nesters – downsizers and right-sizers who want to stay in their long-term neighbourhood, close to friends and family and all of the service and amenity they’ve enjoyed for decades. It can be difficult to find high quality, well-designed accessible housing to suits their needs, that will easily enable them to age-in-place.

 

The Long House is great for young families, because it provides as much outdoor entertaining and garden space as the house itself, and all of the main rooms face north and connect with the generous garden.

That means there is plenty of outdoor space for play equipment and games; al fresco cooking and eating; entertaining with friends and family; and to grow vegetables and plants. 

The connections with the street mean that young families can easily chat with their neighbours and passers-by; to engage and interact with the local neighbourhood.
