The existing site was a steep sloping site both down towards the front of the site and also across the site, meaning extensive earthworks we’re needed in order to subdivide and add a new driveway for the new back lot.
The existing villa was dated and run down, and in desperate need of new piling and joinery throughout the home.
Proposed Site Plan
The renovation involved adding an extra bedroom, a new entry, a walk in scullery and extension of the kitchen into an open plan lounge, dining and outdoor area.
The extension includes a fireplace to keep in character with the villa, tying in the old with the new.
The extension allows for an open plan kitchen, dining and living flowing out to the new deck.
Extensive landscaping was also designed to create complete privacy with fencing and planting of mature trees, so that we could open up the front entrance with steps down onto a beautiful front yard that could be used for years to come.
All new joinery, flooring and even heritage ceiling panels were incorporated to give a nod to the villas heritage character.
Earthworks for the whole site were needed to flatten the site and make way for the new driveway allowing access to the rear lot that was subdivided off for a future new build.
