This Victorian house with generous front rooms had a dark, low ceilinged 1970s addition with limited connection to the large rear garden. The existing pool was built close to the rear of the house and was to be retained, so a first floor addition was required to provide the additional accommodation needed.
The existing rear addition was demolished to slab level and a new two storey extension constructed with living areas at ground floor level and a master bedroom suite with study on the first floor. Two bay windows were added to the original footprint, to create light filled living and dining areas, and connecting the interior to the garden. Bifold doors open onto the new rear verandah, recreating one aspect of the original house the owners loved.
New timber flooring from the entry hall through to the new family living areas links the original house with the new section. The bathrooms and kitchen feature contemporary materials in natural tones, creating a warm and welcoming family home.
