Title image for iHus blog entitled top 5 one bedroom annexes

A one bedroom annexe is the perfect solution if you are looking to downsize without giving up the family home or if you’re looking for the perfect accommodation for an elderly relative. A garden annexe is also a wonderful solution for first-time buyers who are struggling to get onto the property ladder.

Granny annexes come in a range of shapes, sizes and styles. Due to them being so popular, there is now a wide range of one bedroom annexes. In this blog, we’re going to highlight our top five one bedroom annexes.

The Benefits Of Living In A One Bedroom Annexe

Living in a self-contained garden annexe gives you everything you need to live comfortably. If you are looking to downsize, a granny annexe enables you to stay close to the family home. This means you can spend quality time with your family whilst living independently in your own beautiful annexe.

If you care for an elderly relative, a one bedroom annexe could provide the best accommodation solution. It is cheaper than a care home and you have the peace of mind that your relative is safe and nearby if they need you.

If you are looking to get on the property ladder but can’t quite afford a mortgage or find an affordable home, a one bedroom annexe may be ideal. It enables you to leave the family home and gives you the space you need.

The Cantley One Bedroom Annexe

The beautiful Cantley annexe is the smallest annexe in our Core Annexe Range and is one of our most popular models. Starting at just £64,000, the Cantley is available in three sizes; Cantley Standard, Cantley Extra and Cantley Extra Plus.

This pretty annexe has been designed to maximise space. It fits comfortably in most gardens and is perfect as an elderly care alternative. The Cantley Extra (as seen below) or Extra Plus is also great for those looking to downsize!

The Bawtry Extra Plus – Ideal For First Time Buyers

The Bawtry Extra Plus is an amazing first home for any young, independent adult. This modern annexe features a large, open plan living space and fully-fitted kitchen. There is also a spacious double bedroom with a gorgeous en-suite bathroom, which includes a full-sized bath.

Larger than many of our other annexes, this one bedroom garden annexe is 26’3’’ (8.0m) long and 19’8’’ (6.0m) wide. At just £82,500, it provides an ideal home for any young adult trying to get onto the property ladder and gain their independence.

The Dunscroft One Bedroom Annexe

The gorgeous Dunscroft annexe is an L-shaped annexe, meaning its ideal for a corner plot in a garden. Like the Cantley, the Dunscroft one bedroom annexe comes in three sizes. It features a spacious double bedroom, shower room and a large open-plan kitchen/living area.

The L-shaped design gives it a unique touch and provides a great opportunity to add external decking and a patio. The Dunscroft is a great annexe for those couples looking to downsize and stay close to the family.

The Cosy Pod One Bedroom Annexe – Ideal If You’re On A Budget

The spectacular cosy pod is our most cost-efficient one bedroom annexe. This small but practical annexe comes in two styles, Classic and Modern, and costs just £58,500. The cosy pod is ideal if you are on a budget and provides an amazing solution to elderly care accommodation.

Some families often find themselves thrown into a very sudden and difficult situation when an elderly relative can no longer care for themselves or cope in their own home.

Finding suitable accommodation is incredibly time-consuming and most residential care homes have an extremely long waiting list. The Cosy Pod is a great solution as it cost-effective and can be built in just six weeks. Families then have the peace of mind that their elderly relative is nearby, in an amazing garden pod.

The Hickleton One Bedroom Annexe

The outstanding Hickleton granny annexe is one of our more luxurious one bedroom annexes. And it’s the largest! The Hickleton was designed based on feedback from our lovely customers. It showcases an expansive open-plan living space with a fully-fitted, galley-style kitchen adjacent to it.

There is also a large double bedroom and a spacious bathroom with a full-sized bath and shower. The Hickleton is a fantastic one bedroom annexe for those who want to downsize without giving up space or luxury.

The Features Of A One Bedroom Annexe

Our range of annexes come with a choice of roof tiles, finishes, and canopies. Plus, you can choose a flat or pitched roof, depending on your annexe. Each one bedroom annexe also comes with a fully fitted kitchen and PVC double glazed windows which are available in a range of finishes and colours.

The granny annexes also feature a shower room, a wet room or a bath/shower room alongside a spacious double or single bedroom. You can opt for external decking depending on which type of annexe you go for and there is a wide choice of cladding available.

The granny annexes are fully fitted with power points, electric panel heating and LED downlights. Finally, quality laminate flooring is used throughout each granny annexe.
