The detached house is the most flexible type of house with the greatest individual scope in terms of planning and design. At Hanse Haus, you can choose between four different detached house variants as the basis for your home, which differ in their roof shape: From our gable roof classic Variant to Cubus with a flat roof and Vita with a pent roof to the city villa with a hipped or pavilion roof. Let our house proposals inspire you to create your very own house. With our house planning, existing houses can be adapted or completely individually planned.
A single family house consists of a residential unit in which people live together in a common household. Although semi-detached houses also fulfil this criteria, detached houses are more commonly meant.
Plan your detached house exactly as it suits you. Only the conditions on your plot of land, the regulations of the state building code and possibly the development plan provide some key points.
According to your ideas (and your budget), you can determine the architecture of your detached house, the size of living space, the number of storeys, the roof shape, extensions, equipment and design, energy efficiency level and type of heating. Unlike in a multi-party house, no agreements are necessary.
Even though there are advantages to living in a semi-detached or multi-family house with friends or family, or taking tenants into the house, these options come with a lot of consideration.
In a detached single-family house, the physical distance from the neighbours ensures a lot of peace and privacy in the house and garden. Conversely, the distance creates freedom for you: the neighbours hear less about your playing children, barbecue parties or piano lessons.
Detached homes are aligned in such a way that they benefit as much as possible from the course of the sun. This creates optimal conditions for a PV system and the sun's rays provide warmth and brightness in the house. The garden and terrace are also planned accordingly. If there is enough distance to the neighbouring house, the shadow cast by it is not a problem.
In the case of a semi-detached or multi-family house, on the other hand, the orientation of the residential units and the windows may be predetermined by the building complex.
The dream of owning your own home often goes hand-in-hand with owning your own garden around the house. In contrast to a house with several residential units, the garden of a single-family home does not have to be shared and gives the house’s occupants a lot of freedom.
Even on a small plot, clever house planning can create a beautiful garden area. It is worth choosing a compact structure and building upwards in order to keep the footprint of the house smaller.
Spacious or compact, on a floor slab or with a basement, with a gable roof or flat roof. Detached houses are versatile and can be planned flexibly.
We have designed numerous floor plans for our builder-owners that can serve as inspiration for your detached house. After a detailed needs analysis, we will plan your house exactly the way you want it.

A spacious family bathroom for a relaxed everyday life? A practical storage room under the stairs? A utility room in the attic for short distances in the house? Enough space for your favourite hobby?
No matter what is important to you when planning your home – we will work with you to design a detached house that perfectly suits your ideas and your life.
Bungalows, which house one residential unit, are also classified as detached houses. Bungalows are characterised by the fact that all living spaces are arranged on one level.
Do you have a lot of space on your property and would like to live spaciously on one floor? Perhaps you are already thinking about accessibility in old age or find a home without stairs simply practical for your family? Then a bungalow is just the right thing for you.
By building the houses from the QNG+-Line several times in identical designs, you get a modern, high-quality detached house at a particularly favourable price. Choose between nine house designs with 109 to 156 m² of living space that are optimally tailored to everyday family life.
All houses in the QNG+-Line can be converted to meet the requirements for the current KfW subsidies for new buildings. In addition, we can guarantee that the houses will receive QNG certification if they meet certain requirements, which are a prerequisite for the highest subsidy level. This way, you benefit from low-interest loans that make financing your own home even easier.
How much does it cost to build a prefabricated detached house?
Every prefabricated house from Hanse Haus is planned individually. Therefore, it is difficult to give a flat rate for the cost of building a detached house, as it depends on many different factors. These include the size of the house, the shape of the roof, the stage of completion, the fittings and special wishes of the owner.
During a detailed needs analysis, you will discuss with one of our expert advisors what you would like for your prefabricated house. On this basis, you will receive an initial, realistic overview of the construction costs.
Building a low-cost detached house without having to sacrifice quality? That's what our QNG+ line makes possible. The houses from this series with 109 to 156 m² are manufactured in series, so that we can offer them at a fixed, particularly favourable price. For example, you can get a detached house for a family of four in the "near turnkey" development stage from just €276,299.
Are our single-family prefabricated houses eligible for subsidies?
Through the KfW, the German government promotes energy-efficient new buildings by granting low-interest loans. The prefabricated houses from Hanse Haus meet the requirements of both current KfW subsidies, so you save money when you build an eligible detached house.
We create the conditions for you for the highest subsidy level by being able to guarantee QNG certification if certain specifications are met. We have also specifically designed our detached houses from the QNG+ line with this in mind. With the "Climate-friendly new construction" (KFN) subsidy, you benefit from up to €150,000 in low-interest loans per residential unit with QNG certification. The "Home Ownership for Families" (WEF) promotion makes it easier for you to build a house with a low-interest loan of up to € 240,000.
Is a second residential unit possible in the detached house?
For the grandparents, the grown-up children or for renting out: A granny flat can be used to create a second, spatially separate living unit in the detached house in addition to the main flat. Especially in the case of detached houses on slopes, it makes sense to use the basement for a granny flat. But there is also room for a second living unit in an annex or directly in the building structure.
Granny flats have their own bathroom, kitchen or cooking facilities and a living and sleeping area. The two parties often share the entrance area, garden and cellar rooms.
What alternatives are there to the detached house?
- Semi-detached or terraced house: With rising land prices in many places, a semi-detached house or terraced house is often a good alternative - it requires less building land than detached houses. When building a house, certain distances from the property boundaries must be observed. If several residential units are placed in one building, these distances only have to be observed once. Building side by side also means that less valuable heating energy is lost. Building side by side also results in significant savings in heating costs.
- Two- or multi-family house: By creating several residential units in one house, building land and valuable heating energy are also used sustainably here. Living together under one roof can also be a real enrichment in a two-family house as well as in a multi-family house.
- Bungalow: The bungalow with one living unit also counts as a detached house. The special feature: all rooms are on one level.
