Innovative and creative narrow block designs tailored to suit your lifestyle needs.

Designing a home to suit a narrow block can be challenging and requires innovative and creative thinking from you and your home builder. And with the growth in new home estates in Sydney we are seeing a trend towards the release of narrow blocks.

A narrow block is typically defined as having a frontage of less than 13 metres. Knowing the council regulations and other living conditions is a key element when designing a home to suit a narrow block. For example, blocks with less than a 12.5m frontage, you can build right to the boundary line.

Other considerations that can influence the design of a narrow block home include:
Back of house access, Location of utility services, Position of air-conditioning units, Position of water tanks

A narrow block does not necessarily mean a small home either. And, when you build with ANSA Homes you can be assured that our designs do not compromise on space or functionality. Our intelligently designed single storey and double storey narrow block homes can work on flat or sloping, long or short land.

ANSA Homes does not take a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to narrow blocks, and we will work with you to help define your needs and match those with a creative design. Our aim is to deliver a design that is right for your block while creating a home that meets your lifestyle needs.

Things to consider for narrow block house designs in Sydney

Building a narrow block house in Sydney requires careful consideration in a number of key areas that don’t require as much attention in the planning phase for larger blocks. Choosing an experienced builder that understands your local council regulations and other site specific requirements is critical when designing a home to suit a narrow block. For example, if your narrow block has a frontage of less than 12.5m, then you are permitted to build right to the boundary line. When you discuss your narrow block of land with a builder, ensure that the following four considerations are part of the conversation, as each requires special attention when designing and building on a narrow block:
  • Back of house access.
  • Location of utility services.
  • Position of air-conditioning units.
  • Position of water tanks.
