Wide frontage allotments like this are highly prized by purchasers as they allow flexibility in the design of the home and double side by side garaging. Traditional villa style homes with a central passage leading to family entertaining areas at the rear, or variations on this design are generally easily achieved. Narrow frontage allotments are almost impossible to achieve these critical design elements with, due to the design restrictions detailed in most council's development plans.

Unfortunately, when looking to buy land in the inner city areas on which to build, it is generally only through the subdivision of existing allotments in these areas. Those original allotments often created 50 and more years ago, were invariably much narrower than the original allotment at 3 Whelan Ave was.

Economics and lifestyles have influenced the market's acceptance of smaller allotment sizes, but when given an opportunity to have increased design flexibility, purchasers should not ignore the limitations of narrower frontages, and the difficulty in finding wider allotments.

It is going to become increasingly difficult to find wide frontage allotments with the sense of space and privacy they provide as they often had substantial character homes built on them that are still much desired by purchasers as family homes. The purchasers of these allotments here, will look back in many years and congratulate themselves on their common sense and good fortune in buying either of these allotments.

The building plans used in the development application process showing the features detailed above are available on request.
