Second Storey Addition and renovation to family home in Inglewood
The Californian bungalow was built in 1927. Over time many renovations had taken place, many of which sadly removed much of the heritage features.
The new owners, a young couple with three young children, bought this house in 2017 with the intention of respecting and restoring the heritage of the home. Their proactive approach to heritage was uncompromising and they maintained a strong commitment to the restoration and preservation of the building, gardens and streetscape throughout. The home is located within the City of Stirling heritage protection area, and as such there were a number of aspects in the renovation that were required to be strictly met, primarily external so that the heritage streetscape could be preserved as much as possible.
Amerex Renovations and Additions designed and built the extension to the rear of the home, along with the second storey addition and renovation to the existing areas of the home.
At all times, all aspects of the addition and renovation have been built to reflect the architectural style, form, colours and materials of the original house.
This top-to-toe extensive renovation and addition was a large project which included a rear extension with spacious open plan living and a new undercover alfresco area.
The open plan living area features a new kitchen with a butler’s pantry, a family dining and living area. The stunning kitchen has traditional colonial-style white cabinetry and quality stone benchtops. To the side of the kitchen is a butler’s pantry with access via the driveway to allow for a shoppers entrance.
Top-mounted basins in all ensuites and bathrooms including an upstairs bathroom with a laundry chute from upstairs to the new laundry downstairs below!
The home now features 3 living areas – the front formal lounge is used as a parents retreat, the open plan living area and an activity room upstairs. The second storey addition has all the children’s bedrooms upstairs, an additional living area and a bathroom with a beautifully hand-crafted timber staircase connecting the ground floor to the children’s bedrooms with views from each room.
All existing areas of the home were renovated from the front fence, existing front rooms and particular attention was given to the front façade to restore heritage features that had been lost.
With clever design and remodelling of the floor-plan, old rooms in the house served a new purpose. The old kitchen has now become a study. A door from the master bedroom to the adjacent second bedroom was created and the second bedroom was converted into a spacious walk-in robe. Another door was installed from the WIR to the old bathroom adjacent. This bathroom was completely gutted and renovated and is now used as an Ensuite to the master bedroom.
“We can recommend Amerex without hesitation. Steve Burke & his team really do produce renovations of the highest quality and standard. Their many Master Builder and HIA awards demonstrate this and look at any of their online case studies and you’ll see why Amerex have such an A+ reputation. We contracted Amerex to design, manage and build our character home renovation and 2 storey addition. What sets Steve apart is his attention to detail and his integrity, and that of his contractors and staff. Whatever you have signed on for is what Amerex will take great pride in delivering. And even post-build, the customer service is still outstanding. We couldn’t be happier with the end result.”
