Hawthorn renovation and extension

Hawthorn, VIC

Our land space was ideal for development and we loved the area. We had looked at moving, but weighed up the cost and it made more sense to invest money in our existing house and get exactly what we wanted. We liked the idea that Sherbrooke was a one-stop shop offering architect design, construction and complete project management services. During the building phase Sherbooke’s supervisor kept us informed at every stage of the project about what was happening next. We are extremely happy with the end result and would recommend Sherbrooke to family and friends.

Period features and modern design in Surrey Hills

Surrey Hills, VIC

We had lived in the original house for 16 years, loved the area but needed more bedrooms and more open living space. Our draftsman put us on to Sherbrooke and we were impressed by the quality of their work. When the renovation of our old home commenced and problems with the frame were discovered Sherbrooke were really helpful, developing our plans for a new home quickly. Once the renovation was under way our Project Supervisor was great and all of the tradesmen were very professional and always friendly. We would recommend Sherbrooke to family and friends.

The owners of this Glen Iris home lived in their 1910 Edwardian weatherboard for seven years before the needs of a growing family made a home renovation a matter of urgency. With only a 1990s part renovation at the rear and a traditional layout of enclosed rooms, the home was becoming increasingly less practical for a family with young children. Armed with a folder of inspiration – dream clippings of rooms, designs and finishes, the owners approached Sherbrooke Design and Construction to extend their family home.

Our clients knew they were taking on a large scale renovation of their grand Victorian Canterbury home and entrusted Sherbrooke to do the job. The project entailed substantial demolition of part of the house, rebuilding to match the original and renovation of all the remaining rooms.
