Seamless from old to new, the transformation of this 1920s bungalow has been extensive, yet has retained the home’s charming character. The family home’s existing rear entry and wash house area was demolished to make way for the 42sqm extension and 50sqm of new timber decking.
The addition contains a large second living room, which opens out to the generous deck through timber bifold doors to create excellent indoor-outdoor flow. To the side of the living room is a new rear entry. This space contains a laundry, wash room, toilet and service cupboard containing the updated radiator heating units.
Outdoors, the pitched roofline continues past the extension to create an all-weather outdoor entertainment space, where skylights maintain natural light in the living area.
Character elements from the 1920s, such as antique lighting and wooden ceiling beams, have been purposely used in this space. Exceptional workmanship and attention to detail in this renovation has kept the home true to its heritage.
