Why Savvy Investors Are Embracing Manor Houses

Manor Houses offer an attractive investment opportunity due to their flexibility, affordability, and potential for high returns. Unlike boarding houses, rooming houses, or shared houses, Manor Houses can be strata subdivided. This means each unit can be individually owned, offering greater flexibility for investors and residents alike.
  • Flexible Living Options: Manor Houses typically feature two-story designs with four small apartments, making them perfect for creating equity or rental income.
  • Attractive from the Outside: Designed to appear as a single dwelling from the street, Manor Houses blend seamlessly into residential neighbourhoods while providing multiple living units.

Benefits of Manor Houses

  • Investment Potential: The proposed NSW planning changes are a game-changer, creating opportunities for significant returns on investment. With new rules making development easier, Manor Houses are set to become a lucrative option for savvy investors.
  • High Demand: As Sydney continues to grow, the demand for well-located, affordable housing options is skyrocketing. Manor Houses meet this demand by providing stylish and functional living spaces.
  • Community Living: Manor Houses foster a sense of community while maintaining individual privacy. Each unit offers the amenities of a standalone home, including private entrances and outdoor spaces.
  • Efficient Land Use: Manor Houses maximise land use without requiring large plots, making them ideal for urban infill projects. This efficient use of space ensures more housing options in high-demand areas without expanding urban sprawl.
  • Sustainability: These homes are designed with sustainability in mind, often incorporating energy-efficient features and materials that reduce environmental impact and operating costs.

Challenges and Considerations

  • Approval Process: Securing approval for Manor Houses involves navigating complex regulations. However, with the new proposed laws in NSW, the process is becoming more streamlined. It’s crucial to work with experienced professionals to ensure compliance with all planning requirements.
  • Design Standards: Meeting the design standards set by the NSW Government is essential. This includes considerations for height, floor space ratio, and car parking requirements to ensure developments are both practical and attractive.
  • Registered Design Practitioner: Manor Houses must be designed by a Registered Design Practitioner – Architect with an unrestricted licence for Class 2 buildings. This ensures that the development meets all necessary standards and regulations, adding a layer of complexity to the planning process.
  • Site Selection: Finding suitable sites that meet all zoning and accessibility requirements can be challenging. It requires careful evaluation and planning to ensure the location is ideal for development and complies with all local regulations.
