Belrose Renovation 2014

Older style home in need of a makeover

A CDC Build -OC issued 

This home presented as very tired  -a new purchase for the owners and in desperate need of some new life.

1 x bathroom 3 bedrooms seperate rooms for all other rooms 

Works :-

WE opened up the internal floorplan by removing some large  walls in the dining kitchen area and creating an openplan living dining room adjoining the existing loungeroom 

a few extra cupboards were added to the kitchen to join with the new space

In the main bedroom there was a long robe - ALL 3 bedrooms ran along the eastern wall -WE moved along all 3 walls to re configure 3 new bedroom spaces 

1 x Main bedroom-walk in robe + ensuite 

1 x Study/baby room with built in robe 

1 x Double/queen size room with built in robe

New ensuite and walk in robe for main bedroom built within the space of the existing robe and using some space from the room behind to create these new spaces


Opening up the entry and creating a new front door space with foyer area to give a sense the house is larger and there is more behind the walls we left..

The rear of the house had a smaller wall of windows and door 

we installed a larger window RHS to open up vision towards the pool+ louver 

installed a bifold door +Louver bank and then removed Entire houase was re fittted with new aluminium windows ..

Stained and polished  existing pine floors to a dark walnut colour .

The result was a beautiful open plan light filled home with a beach feeling up in the trees 

New floor plan - 2 bathrooms 3 bedrooms All with robes new windows and new front entry with large open  entry foyer giving a sense there is more plan living ,Dining and kitchen /family room with large doors opening onto a large deck .


Textured blinds throughout -and a new selection of furniture
