Granny Annexes for Couples – Valentine’s Day

As tomorrow is Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, we thought we would explore some of our granny annexes for couples.  Young or old, romance never dies, and we guarantee that any couple could live quite happily in most of our granny annexes.

Are Granny Annexes Big Enough for Couples?

You might be wondering if a granny annexe is big enough to comfortably house a couple; perhaps worried that the smaller size is more suitable for single living. However, the good news is that even the smallest model in our core annexe range is big enough for a couple.

An annexe is suitable for couples of all ages too – not just for the elderly, lots of young couples are adopting granny annexes as a more affordable way to start their lives together.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day which is a day of celebration for many people of all ages, older people may find it especially poignant; either because they have lost someone they love through age, or because they are celebrating many years of a relationship or marriage. Young couples will likely be excited, perhaps spending their first Valentine’s together.

Whichever category you fall into, we can guarantee that you would be able to spend a cosy and comfortable evening in one of our granny annexes.

iHUS Granny Annexes for Couples

as mentioned, even the smallest of our granny annexes are suitable for a couple, but you may want to look at some of our more spacious models.

If you have the garden space to allow it, The Ravenscroft has generous proportions, a beautiful open plan living and kitchen area, one bedroom, shower room and additional storage room.

Starting from just £70,560, this annexe is perfect for an older couple that wants a little more room to move around. The large kitchen/living area is the ideal space for having the family around or looking after a couple of grandkids. Or, spending a romantic Valentines evening with a bottle of wine (or two!)

Our first-time buyer models are two annexes we recommend for young couples. The Bawtry Extra Plus has one-bedroom, spacious living area and a bathroom big enough to upgrade to a bathtub if that’s what you prefer.

A young couple looking for a two-bed annexe couldn’t go wrong with The Lovershall Extra. Featuring a huge living area and a smaller second bedroom, this annexe is even suitable for a small family. The large living area would make a great area for a toddler to play, in the evening turning into an oasis of calm for a young couple to relax.

Of course, an older couple may also be interested in a two-bedroom annexe; our older clients like to have the option of a second bedroom for a variety of reasons. Some couples may look after a grandchild and like to have them stop over or may want the additional room as a hobby room, even as a second bedroom for whoever it is that snores the most!

For a couple interested in investing in our biggest annexe, The Wheatley is your best bet. This super generous annexe has enough room for a small separate utility room, two double bedrooms, and a huge living area. There is enough room for a dining suite in the living area and a choice of upgrades can be added such as decking around the annexe. Unbelievably, it’s available for less than £100, 000.

As one of our most popular one-bedroom annexes, the Bawtry is the perfect choice for elderly care or an independent young adult looking for their first home.
The Ravenscroft is a spacious one-bedroom annexe, designed for those with a larger garden plot. All three footprints utilise a central shower room to separate the bedroom and the open-plan kitchen/living area to maximise living space.

In Autumn 2020 Wendy Hamm and her family approached iHus as they were contemplating an annexe build in their back garden to house Wendy’s mother. Wendy’s mother Jane, 82, was living over an hours drive away from the family. Wendy’s day to day responsibilities meant that visits to Jane were a lot less frequent then they would have wished.
