House behind the House

Add to your existing dwelling

Increase your property value

If you have a large backyard, you may be able to build an additional house on your current lot. If so, this style of development could offer some fantastic rewards on your path to financial freedom.

A good way to get started

This type of investment is a great way to enter into the property development game, as it is one of the safest and more affordable options when you are starting out with property developing.

New block next door

Building a house behind a house is actually creating two separate blocks or lots, one being your existing property and the second consisting of the new dwelling.


These are some of our previous projects.

Let us help get it right

If you have a suitable backyard with the right zoning, we will manage the entire subdivision process for you. Our in-house property development team of experts knows how to get the job done on time, on budget and with a quality finish that will stand the test of time.

Subdividing your block can seem daunting, especially if you are a first-time developer. We will guide you step by step through the process to ensure that you are confident in all of the decisions that are being made.

Advantages of this type of development may include:

● Adding an additional income stream by renting the second property.

● Sell one of the properties and continue to live in the other. This option will give you the freedom to downsize, while still living in your neighbourhood.

● An opportunity for a potential profit that could be utilised to pay off your mortgage or simply to put cash in the bank.
