In a street boasting some of the oldest homes in Fairlight, this cottage was in need of more space to bring it in line with today’s standards and to satisfy the needs of this growing family. The alterations and additions included extensive excavation to give the family much needed off street parking and extra storage in the form of a double garage. An extra living area and entertaining terrace was added to the ground floor and a parent’s retreat area with ensuite and study area was created via a top floor addition. Through careful design and a commitment to matching the home’s heritage features, the renovations have resulted in a beautiful character-filled home. Modern touches like C-bus electrical system, under-floor heating and recycled timber floors have all combined to create a much-loved and admired family home.
