Project Overview & Consultation

The first step was to find a perfectly located beachside home on a sizeable block and then it was time to create a forever home. The owners of this charming house spent many years refining their renovation plans and nothing short of perfection would do.

What started as a functional 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home was completely transformed into a family paradise with beautiful living zones opening to an expansive deck; the perfect place to spend your forever.

Concept & Design

The original home provided the bones for a spectacular renovation with its two storey floor to ceiling windows and elevated position, offering tree line views all the way to the bay.

The plans, by Murley Design, cleverly re-arranged the internal floor plan to separate sleeping from living while a small extension and expansive decks capitalised on the poolside entertaining opportunities and serene, leafy back garden.

The cosy weatherboard house was transformed with a new entertainer’s kitchen, an extra bathroom, large living and dining zones with a Cheminees Philippe fireplace for those cold winter nights. The old timber windows were replaced by striking Monument grey aluminium to bring a 1950’s creation into the 21st century.

The final touch was the re-imagined first floor parents retreat complete with walk-in robes and sparkling new ensuite; a haven for the owners to relax, unwind and soak in the picture perfect views.

Project Management

When clients meticulously plan a renovation down to the last detail it can be hard to know if they’ve made the right choice or to imagine the completed project. We spent a great deal of time consulting with the owners to ensure that they were comfortable with how their renovation was unfolding and were able to use our extensive renovation knowledge to guide them to realising their vision while remaining budget conscious.

The building industry also saw its fair share of challenges in 2022; from material shortages to labour woes and everything in between, but the show must go on.

Careful planning and solid relationships with our supply network enabled us to complete the project in just under 5 months. The owners were ecstatic to be spending their first Christmas in the home of their dreams.
