The Corner Cottage exemplifies the invaluable housing alternatives offered by laneway homes. In pursuit of the perfect home to fit her needs, this client purchased this property with the express purpose of building her dream home – a laneway home. Taking this beautiful heritage home and optimally shaped corner lot, she was able to carve out a modest and modern custom home and passive income from the primary and secondary suites in the main house.
Without the possibility of building a laneway home, her housing choices would have been considerably limited. She could either live in an oversized single-detached house, contributing to the unnecessary consumption of precious housing resources, or face the challenges of shared walls and strata governance in a condominium. However, on this picturesque corner plot, our client has skillfully crafted an ideal living arrangement tailored to her specific needs.
