The Homestead

heritage listed property renovation & addition.


Built in 1800’s this beautiful former farm homestead is heritage listed which meant there were several conditions to consider when designing the addition. No alterations to the front elevations or too large a modification to the existing roof were going to be approved.

With minimal and awkward space at the rear of the lot due to the original farm being subdivided for suburban lots it meant the design needed to make the most of the angles. The result was an interesting solution to the clients needs.

The existing residence was completely stripped and refurbished to a very high standard, any replacement timber floors were manufactured to match existing boards. The result of the time and craftsmanship given to the project can be seen in the images.
