Heritage House Renovations – Kew, Melbourne

When tackling designing heritage house renovations, we need to ensure it seamlessly blends the new with the old. We think this gorgeous Californian bungalow mansion has come up looking pretty special!

We repainted the tiered and dated surfaces on the external façade to give it new life while keeping the colours consistent with the neighbourhood. The slate roof was also restored and replaced as was the veranda’s ceiling to give the overall façade a bit of a face-lift. The formal sitting rooms to the front of the home as well as the entry and bedroom had dark wooden panelling that we repainted to brighten up the space and added a stunning chandelier to add wow factor.

The rest of the home was reconfigured and extended with a fresh new modern addition to create new space including two bathrooms, master suite, kitchen, butler’s pantry, meals, family/living area, laundry and garage. We added a stylish outdoor entertaining space with a fully tiled, solar heated lap pool by Integrated Pools designed to be a great outlook from the kitchen/living area and bedroom.

“The connectivity between the indoors and outdoors is a key feature of the home as is the feature timber beams over the alfresco area that will one day be covered with lush vines. Imagine how divine that will look!” – Janine Carter, Interior Designer, Canny Architecture.

While this home is grand it is by no means pretentious. The modern design choices by our team of talented interior designers and architects have been carefully selected to perfectly complement the legacy of the existing part of the home.
