Annexes As Individual As You Are


To successfully build a granny annex in your garden you will need Planning Permission or a Certificate of Lawfulness. We offer both as part of our turnkey service.

One of the most searched for terms on Google right now with the words “granny annexe” in is “house with granny annexe.” That means that if you are thinking about building an annexe in your back garden, you are also creating one of the most desirable homes in the UK right now and in the future.

Annexes are helping to solve the affordable housing and elderly care problems for young and old alike. Whether it is taking on the role of elderly care, downsizing and freeing up equity, or helping young independent adults and single parent families get a home of their own in the current expensive UK property climate, annexes are the perfect solution.

Annexes also make the perfect environment for multi-generation living today where Grandparents take a much more active role in childcare than ever before.

Every custom granny annexe can be personalised and adapted to meet your needs now and, in the future, and we can provide a host of mobility aids.

We take great pride in the fact that no two CLL annexes are the same. Should we have the privilege of building your home, we will ensure that it is tailored to your exact requirements. From windows to wardrobes, facias to flooring, you are in complete control over the design and style of your dream garden home.

The Ideal Care Home Alternative

We see hundreds of people every year looking for Care Home or Retirement Home alternatives for parents looking to downsize to an annexe in the garden.

The number one reason we see driving the decision to switch to annexe living with family members nearby is loneliness.

Secondary to that is of course anticipating that elderly care may be required at some time in the future. Once that conversation within a family develops, a lot of research goes into the options for catering for both.

Building an annexe in your back garden is the #1 choice for a growing number of people in the UK right now who have looked at all the options and decided to make the smart choice of building an annexe.

It really is the smartest choice for most families who have looked at all the costs involved of part-time or full time care and decided that releasing equity to buy an annexe would be the best thing to do for all the family.

The very best time to downsize to an annexe is when it’s a lifestyle choice not a necessity. And we see plenty of 70 & 80 year olds who would easily pass for someone years younger.

Annexes are the most popular choice for keeping Mum, Dad or both within easy reach if needed but letting them enjoy their independence at the same time.

Get In Touch

When it comes to custom annexes, we’ve all seen TV programs like Grand Designs or The House That £100,000 Built and thought, “I’d LOVE to have a go at that!”

Custom annexes are as close to self-building on a smaller scale as you can get and that’s what makes the whole concept magical.

Being able to plan every detail of your new annexe is the real attraction, but there are lots of hurdles to overcome that we can advise you with.

So if you have an annexe project gathering dust in a drawer somewhere that perhaps you submitted a pre-app to your Local Planning Authority for and they said “No!”, it may be worth talking to us before you give up on your dream…
