Armadale Victorian Style Renovation and Extension
Our experienced team listened intently to our clients’ requirements and set out to design, create and interpret their dream Armadale home. We took into account modern designs and functionality while carefully restoring the home to retain it’s wonderful Victorian charm. The front façade, the detailed leadlight surrounding the front door, open fireplaces, Victorian gutter cornices and lacework all played a major role in preserving the graceful charm of this old home.
- Retain Victorian Charm
- Front Facade Update
- Cornices and Lacework
- Full Height Pivot Door
- Indoor/Outdoor Entertaining Area
Working closely with the client, we integrated the minimalist look effortlessly while retaining the Victorian charm during this period renovation. Fine attention to detail combined with our design team’s flair and finesse makes this Armadale home unique. Features include a large full height pivot door acting as a thermal and acoustic divide that is fully concealed when opened. The main bathroom features a full width window looking out to an overflowing glazed urn water feature with golden bamboo acting as a screen.
An enormous amount of thought went into designing this open and spacious home. All the main living areas overlook the rear garden through full length Artisan bi-fold doors, creating a huge indoor/outdoor entertaining area.
Our clients are thrilled with their new home and it also featured in The Herald Sun Home Magazine.
The home’s beautiful distinctive Tutor style exterior has white plastering with black-painted mahogany timber, decorative clinker brickwork in herringbone designs and diamond-pane glass, all reminiscent of the Tutor style Australian buildings. The heritage listing meant we could not alter any part of the exterior including the colour palette or any window glazing.
The design concept was for internal changes only the idea was to completely gut both floors by removing all internal walls to create a blank canvas. The staircase remained and all the internal doors were retained to recycle into the new design. The challenge here was to maintain the structural integrity of the building whilst relocating walls. Many of the solid brick internal walls and fireplaces were load bearing. A big expense on engineering allowed us to open up this home bringing the floor plan into modern day with open living, large entertaining kitchen/dining and bedroom all with ensuites.
The home now has a beautiful wide grand entrance complete with the existing staircase and void. Both, the open plan dining and kitchen to the left or the living to the right are both equally welcoming with pale oak flooring and plantation shutters.
The kitchen showcases European Miele Generation 7000 Intuitive technology. Sleek and elegant appliances include steam combination oven, speed oven, convection oven, range hood, induction cooktop, coffee machine, warming drawer, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. There is extensive joinery and storage, 2 island benches, natural stone bench tops and splashback both in Taj Mahal Quartzite and the butler’s pantry includes a Miele wine-conditioning unit. The heritage large window here floods the room with an abundance of natural light.
The Laundry is off the kitchen and hidden in the fifth bathroom behind bifold doors. Here you will find Miele fashion master steam ironing system. The powder room along with all upstairs bathrooms include the Luxurious Hybrid Ecology System Toilets.
Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms all with ensuite bathrooms with floor-to-ceiling Porcelain tiles and a breathtaking grand master bedroom that flows to a sunroom private balcony.
Other features include wallpaper inserts to cabinetry, Lutron home automation and security cameras, European gas log fireplaces, full reverse cycle heating and cooling and remote controlled double lock up garage.
