Kew Renovation & Extension

Victorian Period Home

Kew dated grand Victorian home

Sherbrooke have turned this somewhat dated grand Victorian into the beauty it is today. Whilst still retaining its warm charm they have integrated a complete modern wing to the rear of what was formerly an outdated 1970’s living zone. Some improvements were made to the original Kew home by building a new verandah to the entry and relaying and polishing the floorboards. The major transformation however can be seen in the seamless integration of a modern and contemporary open plan entertainment area, and second floor parent’s master bedroom and retreat.


  • Polished Grey Iron Bark Floorboards & Staircase
  • Acoustic Insulation
  • Rear Decked Entertaining Area
  • Hydronic Heating & 18,000 Litre Water Tank
  • CBUS Electrical System

Sherbrooke began renovating the Kew home by demolishing and excavating the area and laying a slab floor with a second level. The living areas downstairs were built open plan, optimising space and land, and include a number of luxurious features to suit the most design savvy home owner.

A CBUS electrical system has been installed offering fully automated, pre-programmable control of lights, music and heating using one control panel. Hydronic heating, an 18,000 litre water tank and commercial grade aluminium windows are additional examples of the quality inclusions Sherbrooke has installed in this magnificent home.

An archway at the top of the steps marks the transition where the existing period home ends and the new renovation begins. Enter the kitchen and you'll find a crisp white space finished in white 2 pack with thick slab, white stone bench tops, glass splashbacks, insinkerator and designer tapware. A walk-in pantry and Ilve twin ovens complete this central hub of the house.

Downstairs flooring is completed in a stylish and elegant polished grey iron bark timber. Ascend the stairs and a luxurious master bedroom awaits with WIR, ensuite and a large balcony for the outdoor living area with views overlooking the family pool. The ensuite is cleverly hidden behind mirrored cabinetry and features limestone bench tops, spa bath, and smart feature lighting integrated into the joinery.

Other quality inclusions such as colour video intercom, surround sound entertainment and gas Jetmaster heater with a decadent 5 metre bench top acting as both a hearth and drawer for media storage make this home both luxurious and extremely functional.

Sherbrooke also made some improvements to the existing home by extending the decking and verandah using mixed hardwoods and installed Colorbond corrugated roofing to the front verandah complimenting the existing slate roof beautifully.

Sherbrooke Design and Construction have once again completed a prestigious renovation and extension which can be seen in their excellent craftsmanship.
