The Property

The client owned an old house on a large development site south of Perth CBD.

She was frustrated with ongoing maintenance on the home but was hesitant to build due to the timeframe and cost involved.

The Challenge

We needed to work out exactly what the client wanted to do with the site as it was going to be for a mixture of owner-occupier and investment purposes.

It needed to be completed within 12 months to cause minimal disruption to her lifestyle but keep the cost down so it would fall within her budget.

The Solution

The design that suited this client best was to build one large single storey home on the front part of the lot and a smaller second villa at the rear of the site.

The front home would be larger and be personally designed to suit the clients ongoing living needs while the rear unit would be smaller and fitted out for rental purposes.

While both would be done on Orbic’s high specifications, the front house would include extras the client was prepared to include in order to get the home she wanted to live in and have room for her family when they were in the Country.

The Outcome

Construction of 2 single level villas was completed in 6 months, on budget and well within the timeline.

The client now has a large 4 bed, 2 bath home with plenty of room for her and her extended family as well as a rear 3 bed, 2 bath villa that she can rent out for investment purposes.

Orbic has a very happy client and we are now in discussion with her to look at future investment opportunities.
