Gorgeous Glen Iris

Faced with the dilemma of needing to downsize but wanting to remain in the same suburb to be close to family, Ivan and Maureen’s daughter offered the perfection solution– add a second level to her home and move in!

The couple are now happily living in a second storey above their daughter’s Jandakot home, which thanks to the team at Summit Home Improvements, perfectly meets their needs.

Their new abode is everything they imagined and has considerable less maintenance than their previous six acre property required.

The second-storey addition was the first renovation the couple had ever been involved in and said their daughter, grandson and son-in-law were able to remain living in their home while the works were carried out.

They said they found the design phase process an excellent experience and it was important to them the addition featured separate living quarters, with their own laundry and kitchen.

“Jim was our design consultant and Monica helped us choose our finishes in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry,” Ivan said.

The couple’s new residence comprises of a big lounge area off a dining room, a spacious kitchen, a master bedroom with a walk-in robe and ensuite, a study, a minor bedroom, a laundry and separate toilet.

Amongst Ivan’s favourite part of the addition is a balcony, which he said provides the best views of Glen Iris Public Golf Course.

Help was always at hand for any questions they had and said their supervisor Shaun was great at keeping them informed throughout the building process as it progressed.

They said the entire process was a pleasing experience and the contractors were respectful as the works were carried out.
