Rear garage access designs

Explore our range of Rear Loaded Home Designs

Is your block not suitable for a front garage access?

It's now common for land estates in Perth to offer narrower blocks with rear laneways for vehicle access. As land prices have increased over recent decades, these types of blocks have been created by land developers to offer cost-effective lots perfect for the budget conscious. To suit this type of block, we have a range of designs with the garage located to the rear of the home, as opposed to the more traditional layout where the garage and driveway are located to the front of the home. This style is often referred to as a ‘rear loaded’ home.

Building a house on a narrow lot rear lane access block of land does not mean you have to compromise on how you live in your new home. Our clever designs feature open plan living, plenty of storage space, and great inclusions. Plus, with the driveway and garage out of sight, its business out the back 🚘 party in the front 🏠

Lots to love about rear loaded designs

If you are thinking about a home on a smaller block with car access at the back - these are some of the perks!

  • Great use of space & less maintenance

    Our experienced design team take the perceived size restrictions of narrow lot homes and turn them into advantages by making use of space in the most innovative ways. Like, making the most of open plan living areas to ge the most out of the block and provide a sense of openness. Plus, smaller block size = less space to look after.

  • Affordable home and land

    Narrow lot homes are a great option if you want to get into your own home, on a budget. The size of the block is a huge factor in the price of land so, generally – the smaller the lot, the smaller the price (depending on the location). Also, a smaller home will also help keep to a budget.

  • It's all about street appeal

    With the garage and driveway out of sight, the front of your home (or facade) can focus on greater street appeal; or creating a space to enjoy a glass of wine on a warm summer's night; or starting a herb garden.
