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.
- Substantial Existing Home Demolition
- Second Storey Addition
- Tower Staircase
- Victorian Period History
Sherbrooke was engaged to create a grand home in Canterbury where all living spaces were to have their own identity and a direct association to the large surrounding gardens. A second storey was added and all works carried out were seamlessly integrated by maintaining the brickwork detailing, slate roof, timber framed windows and doors and verandah elements as much as possible.
As the feeling of space is synonymous with grand Victorian homes, the design included a tower staircase which acts, not only as a central focal point, but provides a distinct separation between formal and informal areas and a link to the upstairs bedrooms.
Sherbrooke’s expertise in construction and joinery have produced a graceful home of grand proportions which featured in The Herald Sun Home Magazine as well as being awarded a finalist medal in the HIA Victorian Best Renovation/Addition category.
