Traditional Romance

This stunning Shenton Park home is the perfect mix of character romance and modern functionality.

After two previous renovations, Jon and Lorna approached Summit Home Improvements to help them to transform their three bed and two bath cottage.

“Summit construction personnel were experienced, skilled, proactive and excellent at suggesting subtle design changes during the process that added that “something extra” to our house” said Jon and Laura.

The client brief was to rejuvenate this beautiful home in order to best suit the needs of a young growing family without compromising on the home’s heritage. The homeowner’s also wanted to improve their home’s overall efficiency while also enhancing its existing character features.

Jon and Laura were clear that they wanted to achieve “a house that flowed inside-outside, that allowed a young family to grow, that respected the heritage of the house but allowed modern living that gave a sense of grandeur and was energy and maintenance efficient.”

To create the natural flow between the inside and outside living areas, the Summit Home Improvement team replaced the existing doors on the home’s rear wall with beautiful timber multi-fold doors. Perfect for entertaining, the doors fold away to provide an uninterrupted view of the back garden and extend the open-plan family and dining room onto the verandah.

“Summit had good design ideas that complemented our vision.” said Jon and Laura.

In addition a third bedroom was extended to provide space for a generous walk-in robe and linen cupboard – ideal for the growing family.

“It is everything we envisioned and more! Every evening we comment how fantastic the house is and passers-bye comment how beautiful it is” said Jon and Laura.
