A granny flat or accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a second dwelling on your property that is separate from your main house. These buildings are known as ‘granny flats’ because they often house ill or elderly parents. However, this isn’t all they can be used for.

What else can I use a granny flat for?

The possibilities are endless, but popular options include:

  • A retreat for your kids
  • A home office, studio or gym
  • A long- or short-term rental property
  • A way to boost your home’s value before sale
  • A place for you to relax after a long week!
