A recent renovation has opened up this two-storey brick character hillside home in Dunedin to the wonders of solar gain and modern-day entertaining. The existing kitchen was located at the dark end of the house with little access to the sun. The living areas were suffering from the same lack of light. A little rearranging and a lot of skill has brought this much-loved family home up to date and into the light. The new layout makes the most of the 235sqm interior. The renovation included demolition of walls along with partial demolition of the exterior to increase indoor-outdoor flow. Brickwork was expertly reinstated where necessary. Large bifold doors open the superb new kitchen-family area to a newly developed patio and alfresco domain with built-in seating and fireplace. Extensive landscaping was also undertaken and a spa installed. The media and music rooms have been beautifully updated with all the trimmings. The master bedroom, complete with luxury double ensuite, is a dream come true for the owners.
