Despite being only 7 years old, poor detailing and a flawed floor plan meant the owners of this home wanted an extensive renovation to bring it to the standard of living they wanted.  Windows were replaced, with French doors installed to connect the house with the garden.  The floorplan was revised, with a new kitchen installed, and a combined pantry/ laundry.  Dark timber veneers, marble, stone cladding, and greywashed timbers combine to provide a moody, earthy atmosphere.

Removal of a tennis court dominating almost the entire back yard, and converting the existing pool to an in-ground water tank with decking above, allowed this outdoor area to be converted in to a space more suited to the owners. 

With limited access to the yard, the builders made use of a small window of opportunity when the house over the back fence was demolished, completing the makeover before construction of the house at the back began. A new pool was installed, with a trampoline for the kids, and mature trees planted around the perimeter, creating a suburban oasis.  

The garden now reflects the Hamptons style of the home.
