The brief was to revive this circa 1900 Bluestone cottage, with the addition of a contemporary extension that seamlessly transitioned the home from old to new. Heritage details, such as old bluestone walls, were painstakingly stripped back and repointed, becoming a feature both in the master bathroom and the new open plan living room. The renovated part of the property includes an updated master bedroom with a study that was converted into a walk-in-robe and ensuite, a guest bedroom, bathroom and study.
A hallway featuring new heritage-inspired archways opens out to the light and bright living space, complete with a galley style kitchen incorporating a Caesarstone island bench with waterfall edges, and European laundry. Other noteworthy elements of the project include western red cedar feature panelling to the extension, a reclaimed timber deck, rough-sawn bluestone pavers, extensive landscaping, a new garage, and fencing works.

“We can’t speak highly enough of Craig and his dedicated team in bringing our renovation dream to reality. The work was all of high quality and even other trades and suppliers commented on the quality of the work, which was very reassuring. Craig was always attentive, very professional, and friendly. We had heard of building nightmares, but this was a dream! Highly recommend.”
