MORE micro lots are on the way for Ellenbrook after a pilot project proved popular amongst first homebuyers and downsizers.

The first 11 double-storey homes on Fruin Loop in Ellenbrook were built on green title sites less than 100 square metres in size, significantly smaller than Perth’s average lot size of 375sq m.

Civil works for an additional eight lots are now complete with a further eight lots flagged for release to the market later this month.

Housing Minister Peter Tinley said the micro lot house and land packages were equally popular with retirees, downsizers and first home owners.

“These projects change our perception of affordable housing and challenge other builders to be more inclusive and place home ownership within the reach of more people,” he said.

“Buyers have found the low maintenance and uniqueness of these homes, and their close proximity to Ellenbrook Central shopping centre and other amenities particularly attractive.”

The micro lot housing precincts are a partnership between the State Government and LWP Property Group, with the first 11 homes designed and built by Now Living.

The Fruin Loop micro lots in Ellenbrook won the 2019 Master Builders Award for Innovative Construction of Small Lots as well as the 2018 Award for the best Small-Scale Infill Development.
