Ashwood Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

Ashwood is a safe and family-friendly suburb to live in. Situated just 14 kilometres from the city of Melbourne this little-known suburb lies between Burwood and Ashburton where its name comes from. Ashwood is not only home to the Melbourne Harlequins rugby union team but Ashwood Reserve Park is also home to the Waverley Hockey Club.

Ashwood is also popular for the bicycle trail that runs through the Ashwood reserve and links it with the Gardiners Reserve to the north. Towards the east lies the Electra Reserve that includes facilities like a senior citizen’s hall, croquet facilities, and a dog club. Education facilities include a kindergarten, a pre-school, a primary school, and Ashwood High School. Several bus routes connect Ashwood to the city of Melbourne and surrounding suburbs and there are two railway stations.

Why Choose Ashwood?

There are not too many houses available for sale in Ashwood which is a clear indication that people prefer to keep their properties and extend or renovate when the need arises rather than sell. A home extension means that your home can grow with you when your family increases rather than uprooting and moving to a new location.

Another good option is to knock down and renovate an older home that may have been bought at a lower price and turn it into the modern home of your dreams. If you live in Ashwood our team of expert designers and builders at Period Extensions & Designs can help out explore all the amazing options you have to extend and modernise your existing home which will save you a ton of money.
