At Granny Annexe, we design Annexes that are for the needs of people who enjoy the benefits of having their own accommodation while also being closely connected to family and relatives. The Annexes we design are built around the particular requirements of each and every customer. Our first step in building an annexe for a customer is to chat with them and learn about their situation. If the annexe is for an elderly relative, or for themselves or for someone with mobility problems then we want to know in order to help provide a building that will work brilliantly for these circumstances.
Our key aim is to provide a building that not only performs perfectly but also looks fantastic as well. All of our stunning annexe designs, share the philosophy of elegantly simple design, with a modern architectural appeal, adding value and accommodation to your garden space.
What are Common reasons for building an annexe?
Everyone has their own reasons for building an annexe. It might be to provide independent living with the added advantage of being close to relatives. It could be to add extra space and accommodation to your home and to create a versatile building in the future, or it could be to provide temporary accommodation for younger relatives, such as those wishing to get a foot on the property market.
Independent living for elderly relatives
A Garden Annexe is a perfect solution for those wanting to downsize and move into smaller accommodation that is self-contained, yet retains the benefit of still being connected to family and relatives. In essence, a garden annexe is simply a small, single-storey building that is built in the garden of a property and contains all of the things we normally associate with a compact one or two-bedroom home.
All of the annexes we build come complete with a luxury shower room as standard and include a walk-in shower (or optional wet-room), an electric shower and a W/C and washbasin with a stylish vanity unit.
A deluxe kitchen supplied by Howdens is also included in the price of all of our Garden Annexes. Our standard fitted kitchens come with a selection of different finishes, with a variety of worktops, sinks and cabinets in a variety of styles and colours. Also included is a choice of appliances from leading brands such as AEG, we will supply and fit appliances as based on your requirements, or if you are happy with your existing appliances it is no problem to move in with these instead.
What is paramount to us is to create a home that is comfortable, practical and stylish and is going to be meet all the requirements of our customers, adapting to their needs if and when those change.
We have been building garden annexes for elderly relatives for over 10 years and know the importance of getting everything right. It is often the little things, such as how the building flows, how easy it is to access the shower, or whether the kitchen will be manageable that can make all the difference.
How we get it right
We provide a unique personalised service for all our customers. After chatting to one of our advisors we will recommend for you to have a free site survey conducted at your home. A site survey is a fantastic way for you to get to know us more and get a feel for how we work as a company. It will also be the first opportunity we have to view your property and garden and advise you on the size and annexe style that would best suit your property and needs. If you are building an annexe for an elderly relative it is also a great time for us to meet them and chat with them so we can start designing a building for their unique requirements.
Granny annexe, a practical and versatile building
Not all the annexes we build are for elderly relatives. Our annexes are versatile, cleverly designed buildings that can be adapted for many uses. Our annexes are often used for a multitude of functions, including providing a garden office with additional accommodation, a spare room to be used by guests, or a temporary garden flat for guests staying for a longer time. With the huge increase in property prices in some areas, buying a home is just not feasible for a lot of people, so it makes a lot of sense to build an annexe that can provide a more afordable way to get on the property ladder or provide a temporary solution while saving for a deposit.
