Sometimes there are things you love about your home that you simply can’t replace. The location, the neighbourhood or perhaps the north facing aspect. Renovating a home to change the things you don’t like is sometimes a much better option than moving, when you consider stamp duty and moving costs.

This original one level post war home was raised and extended to accommodate our client and her elderly mother. Situated close to a creek, the site was subject to flooding, so the home was raised so a self contained studio on the new ground level could be created above the flood level. The studio, created for the elderly mother, incorporated two bedrooms and a bathroom, a large rumpus, kitchenette and laundry.

The first floor was redesigned and renovated to include a luxury master suite, with walk in wardrobe and ensuite. An open plan living area incorporates a galley kitchen, dining, family and study nook. A second bedroom opening to the living area doubles as a lounge room or guest room.

The home was in a demolition control precinct, therefore the additions were designed to maintain the original character of the dwelling in the neighbourhood they loved.
