Having double the street frontage, more access points, and bigger gardens are just a few of the advantages to building on a corner block. But there are plenty more reasons why this is such a sought-after real estate option.
Increased exposure and flexibility in home design (if you know what you are doing)
Unlike an ordinary building a house, a corner block provides the opportunity to design your house to fit in well with the space and location. If you work with a Gold Coast builder who appreciates this advantage, they can design your home to suit the area and provide a floor plan that is best suited to the specific size of the lot.
More options for windows and light in your home
Depending on the style of home you are wanting to build, building on a corner block may be ideal for your chosen design. Homes on conventional blocks often don’t allow much natural light into the living areas due to the fact that they are surrounded by tall adjacent buildings, or the homes are so close together that windows are limited in their options.
More space for landscaping
A corner lot is also the perfect space to create a lush garden. A beautiful landscape that wraps around your home can really enhance your curb appeal, which can increase your resale value if you ever decide to sell the house in the future.
More space for wall fences
Another great thing about a corner block is that you can put up some pretty interesting art on your wall fences. This is a great way to show off your personality and stand out from the crowd. But be aware that this extra space can be a target for graffiti artists, so you need to think about how you want to protect your wall fences and make sure you have security measures in place.
