A Granny Annexe from Rubicon is truly a safe and comfortable home from home. It’s built to Housing Standards with exceptional levels of insulation, ensuring your loved ones will not only be super cosy, but the costs of heating will be minimised, even in the most extreme of winters.
Looking after an elderly relative these days is an expensive business with care home fees reaching extortionate levels. With residential care now costing anything from £40-£60,000 a year and the inherent health risks within communities of elderly residents (Covid risks etc), it makes sense to keep your loved ones close.
They can enjoy independent living, safe in the knowledge that a caring relative is just across the lawn in case of need. It makes sense economically too, with the cost of installing a luxury granny annexe in your garden often being recovered within 12-18 months of installation when compared to external residential accommodation.
For elderly relatives, selling the family home can be a traumatic and emotional experience. But when their home becomes too big to manage and with health deteriorating, liquidating this asset will free up substantial funds, enabling not only the purchase of the granny annexe, but also savings which can be banked for future security.
Furthermore, a granny annexe is well known to add value to your property, so instead of wasting huge sums on residential care homes, your investment is not wasted as you retain the asset value.
Even a large 2 or 3 bedroom Granny Annexe of up to 20m x 6.5m can often be built in your garden without Planning permission, incorporating lounge/diner, double bedrooms, toilet, shower room and kitchen.
