Duplex Properties

Maximise your investment with dual occupancy

Double Your Returns

Duplexes are one of the more popular development opportunities in Perth and the Sunshine Coast, allowing you to build two homes on one block of land, separated by a common central wall.

Build To Suit the land

Depending on the size and shape of your plot, a duplex can be two side by side buildings or one house behind another – the latter is also known as a battle-axe design.

One Or Two Blocks?

Sometimes a duplex building exists on one land title and must therefore be sold together, other times they are held on two separate land titles and can be sold separately. In Perth, a duplex development can only be built on land of a certain size, which is dependent on the property zoning for your area.

No fuss duplex developments?

Let us help get it right

Every block of land is different and all councils have different rules regarding subdivisions, so the best solution is to call us at Thompson Sustainable Homes and we can accurately assess what can be built on your development site.

As an example, due to the shape and size of your block and depending on obtaining council permission, you may decide to build a second home behind an existing home (battle-axe) or demolish the existing house and subdivide the land.

You can then build two new homes, one on either side of the subdivided land, creating a side by side duplex development.

If you believe that a duplex development is appropriate for your block, we will consult with the local council and planning consultants on your behalf.

We will determine the current zoning policies and future changes to these policies so that you can make an informed decision.
