A two-storey home is often the best way to make the most of those precious square metres.
Not only do two-storey homes leave more room for a big backyard, but an elevated home can make the most of the view, offer a greater sense of internal space and tend to have a more impressive street appeal.
A two-storey home is obviously not for everyone. The elderly or people with disabilities can find stairs problematic, but if you have your heart set on a larger property there could still be a two-storey home that suits your lifestyle.
