An Ideal Housing Solution for Extended Families

In recent times many home buyers have begun to reassess the living arrangements of their extended family and to consider dual living options. Stroud Homes is proud to introduce to New Zealand a great range of houses with attached minor dwelling options.

Full Featured Homes

Increasing numbers of new homeowners are looking for a housing solution that accommodates up to three generations while still ensuring privacy for the occupants.

Our attached minor dwelling solutions provide ample living space while also presenting an integrated home frontage and roofline.

A casual observer would scarcely realise that the property contains a fully self-contained minor dwelling. A shared outdoor area provides a great meeting point for the families.


Benefits of Attached Minor Dwellings

An attached minor dwelling is an ideal living solution for extended family. You get the benefits of living under the one roof while still enjoying separate living spaces and privacy.

Benefits of attached minor dwellings include:

  • Greater economy and affordability.
  • Improved security.
  • Flexible lifestyle options including child minding, supervision and assistance.
  • Cost-effectiveness of the initial build. It’s cheaper to build the minor dwelling at the same time as the main home rather than at a later date.
  • A significant improvement in resale value.
