This grand eight-bedroom Victorian home has undergone a few renovations over the decades. It was converted from a family home to a mental health service residence, to individual flats and then back to a family home again in the 2000s. Over the past year, the 1860s Category-2 heritage house has been transformed again.

This time it’s the result of a collaboration between renowned Hawke’s Bay architect Simon Clarkson, Designgroup PMA and the newly established team at Hawke’s Bay Construction. The team loved working on the project, and especially enjoyed the result – a home restored to its former glory, with modern flair.

The meticulous kitchen is the perfect combination of old-world charm and modern-day panache. There’s a scullery, butler’s sink and plenty of storage. Dark parquet flooring, bronze hardware, Caesarstone benchtops and glass match the Victorian era of the home. This project was not without its challenges, however. When work started it soon became clear there was more to remedy than originally thought – the result of different building standards over almost 160 years.
