Big Living Homes Designed for Small Lots

Discover all the big benefits of living on a small lot in a master planned address.

Wouldn’t it be great to have all the benefits of a large house but only have the maintenance of a small lot?  Why should you buy more than you need?  Why spend your free time on maintenance when you could be spending time with your family and friends?

Whether you are a first home buyer, a down sizer or a busy family, a home designed for a small lot can work for you as the ultimate house and land package. 

A small lot doesn’t mean a small house or a small lifestyle.

You may be surprised by the amount of house that can fit on a small lot. 

There is no need to compromise on bedrooms, bathrooms or living space, with a carefully considered plan that suits the way that you live, you can live big on a small lot.


Here’s why small lots can be the best decision for First Home Buyers, Busy Professional Families & Downsizers or Retirees


First Home Buyers

For the First Home Buyer, a small lot is a great way to maximise your investment. 

You can access all the benefits of owning your own home without paying for the things you don’t need. 

Why pay for a large backyard that is rarely used when you can access beautiful park spaces at your doorstep?   

With a small lot home design, you can still have your open plan living spaces that flow onto generous outdoor living areas. 

You can entertain and embrace your outdoor lifestyle without the need for an expansive back yard.  In fact, Villa World addresses are designed and planned nearby open space and the amenities that you need, regardless of the size of the lot that you buy. 

Generally, planners design the smaller lots to be closer to parks and recreation spaces, so you can access all the benefits that these amazing amenities provide but without having to maintain them. Winning!


Busy Professional Families

When your family is at its busiest, the last thing you want to be doing on the weekend is endless hours of property maintenance. 

A home designed on a smaller lot can help you unlock a low maintenance lifestyle by offering housing solutions that are easy to keep clean and maintained. 

Weekends can be reclaimed for relaxing and spending time with family and friends.  Surely a coffee at the local café or watching your kids play in their soccer match is more enjoyable than spending hours maintaining your garden. Of course, we realise some of us like to potter in the garden so our low maintenance landscape designs offer the choice to do as much or as little as you want.

At Villa World, we understand that you live in a community, not just a home, so we design our addresses to make sure that you have easy access to schools, shops and amenities.  This helps you get the most out of your weekends, because as we all know, time is precious.


Down Sizers and Retirees

For many Downsizers or Retirees, the thought of giving up the large home is a particularly emotional one.  We get that, it’s the memories that make a house a home.

But when you downsize in a Villa World address, you don’t have to downsize your lifestyle. 

Villa World addresses are diverse communities that have residents from all stages of life, from young couples in their first homes, through to young families and professional couples.  Through this diversity, you can embrace an active and social lifestyle. 

Whether you relocate to be near friends or family, or simply to enjoy the ease of living, a Villa World address offers the ability to live big in a small lot.  You can enjoy the benefits of easy living – remember that there is more to life than maintaining a large home.

So, whatever stage of life you are in, homes designed for small lots have a lot to offer!
