Edwardian Dream

When Mark and Karla purchased this charming Edwardian home, they knew the time would come to extend. As is common with the lean-to structures added to dwellings in the 1980’s, the size of the added rooms were small and their growing family demanded more space.

 

Before

Ground Floor - three bedrooms, kitchen, family/ meals, living, bathroom, toilet, laundry and
verandah.

After

Ground Floor - master bedroom with built-in robes and ensuite, three bedrooms, open plan kitchen/ meals/ family, living room, study, bathroom, toilet, laundry and deck.

 

Having moved from Ascot Vale they knew that Hille’s Home Extensions was a popular choice for home extensions. And having friends who had used HHE - and were very happy with their work - the choice was easy.

 

The HHE designer visited the homeowners to flesh out their design ideas and options. The Heritage Overlay on the property meant several revisions to council as the plans were refined. It turned out the homeowners had to accept a carport instead of a garage and lower the roofline to ensure the streetscape was not altered too significantly.

 

In the original part of the home, bedroom two was commandeered to create an ensuite for the adjacent master bedroom and a laundry, accessible from the new section.

 

The rear of the home was completely removed and in its place the new open plan kitchen, dining and living areas were constructed complete with Hi-Lite windows. Large, modern bi-folds were installed, and through these one walks out onto a deck for wonderful outdoor entertaining.
