This much-loved century-old home has been infused with new life thanks to a carefully planned renovation that seamlessly connects with, and enhances, its original character. The primary purpose of the reno was to provide the family of four with a better flow within the home and to the outdoors. The project entailed a new kitchen, family and dining rooms, laundry, toilet and covered decks. In keeping with its 1900s charm, timber has been used throughout the renovation, including the floors, window and door joinery, ceilings, weatherboards and decking. The large windows that wrap the dining room are encased in steel units, slimmer profiles than the timber equivalent, to maximise the views. In the heart of the home, the kitchen is finished with Shaker-style cabinetry, a gas stove and stone benchtops that collectively complement the era of the house. With 60sqm of much-need extra space, an easy flow from the living area out to decking, and immaculately landscaped surrounds, this cherished home works perfectly for its modern family.
