There is so much to love about a corner block.

When it comes time to build your new home, one of the most important decisions you will make is where to build.

You may be tempted to just choose any old lot, but did you know that there are some major benefits to building on a corner block? Corner blocks are growing in popularity, here are some great reasons why building your dream home on a corner block could be the right choice for you:

Increased privacy.

When you build on a corner block, your home will be positioned on two streets rather than one. This means that you will have more privacy and less chance of being overlooked by neighbours.

More space.

Due to the shape of corner blocks, they typically offer more living space than traditional blocks. This is perfect for families.

More natural light.

Since your home will be facing two streets, it will also get more natural light than if it were facing just one. This will make you have a sense of warmth and comfort and can help save on energy costs.

Multiple access points.

Unlike some traditional blocks with only one access point, a corner block offers the opportunity for multiple access points including additional options for entry doors, gates, garage, and driveways. This provides more flexibility and makes it easier to get in and out of your home.

Increased street appeal.

A well-designed home on a corner block is sure to have great street appeal. This can add value to your home down the road if you ever decide to sell.

Development & investment opportunity multiple dwelling.

If you are looking for an investment property, a corner block is a great option as they often offer the potential for multi-dwelling development. This could be just the right opportunity you are looking for
