Small Block Home Designs

Buying on a shorter block, narrow block or one that’s just generally smaller doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on space or features. In fact, with Dennis Family Homes, it’s quite the opposite. We believe that small blocks still hold all the same potential. And these days, buying a small block doesn’t mean you’ll be limited in your choices of home designs.

So if you’re looking for small block home designs that don’t make you feel like you’ve compromised on size, we’ve got a range of options on offer. You’ll still get the same modern style, lots of new features and plenty of space. And it’ll all fit within your budget (and land size), too!

Homes for narrow lots

As expert home builders, we know all the tricks of the trade when it comes to narrow lots. Our small block home designs suitable for blocks under 12.5 metres wide will make you wonder just how we managed to fit it all in. Hint: it has a little something to do with smart floorplans and compact designs.

Take the Edgewood, for example. The 22 squares of space comes complete with everything you need – three bedrooms, two living areas and a separate study. And it can fit on lots as narrow as only 10 metres!

If you prefer single storey living, the Olinda is a great option. It’s got four bedrooms, two living spaces, a walk-in robe and double ensuite in the master bedroom – plus a gourmet kitchen and inviting portico entry. Olinda shows that small block home designs can still fit everything you could ever need.

We even have home designs for the narrowest of blocks. Take the Ardina, which can fit on blocks as small as 8.5 metres wide. Yet there’s no sacrificing on features. You’ll still enjoy a stylish island bench in the kitchen, two bathrooms, three bedrooms and a walk-in robe and ensuite to the master bedroom.

These are just a few of our popular small block home designs. There are actually 19 to choose from, so you really can take your pick of the bunch. Building on a small block with Dennis Family Homes is uncomplicated and stress-free.

Homes for shorter blocks

If you’re looking to buy or have bought on a shorter block, you won’t miss out either. Dennis Family Homes offers more than 20 small block home designs suitable for blocks less than 25 metres long.

One of our crowd favourites has been the Topaz. Measuring in at just under 15 metres in length, this double storey home still comes complete with everything you need. This includes four bedrooms, two living areas, a separate study and kitchen with a walk-in pantry. You won’t feel like you’re strapped for space at all. In fact, it’s hard to believe we’ve packed an incredible 25 squares into this small block home design. And almost 20 of those squares are dedicated to living spaces.

Another impressive design is the Sapphire. It fits a whole 29 squares into a floorplan under 15 metres long. The kitchen comes complete with a large walk-in pantry, and there’s plenty of room for the whole family with three roomy living spaces. But the bedrooms are where the Sapphire really sets itself apart – not only does the master bedroom feature a spacious walk-in robe and ensuite, each of the four bedrooms also comes with their own walk-in robes. Talk about luxury!

There are also small block home designs for single storey living too. Take the Ekati, for example. This home is loaded with all the features you’d expect – and some more. Think double garage, a master suite complemented by his and hers matching walk-in robes, a walk-in pantry to the kitchen and your choice of a range of contemporary facades. You won’t be able to wait to move in!

Discover our full range of home designs suited to shorter blocks. All loaded with features and still incredibly spacious, you won’t even be able to tell that they’re set on a smaller block.
