Elwood Home Renovation And Extensions

You might be very happy in your house, but for some reason, it seems to have gotten smaller over the years. Perhaps your toddler is now a teenager and now has a younger sister or brother. Or now that you work from home, maybe you need more office space or an extra entertainment area. Regardless of why your home is no longer matching up to your needs, you can renovate or extend your property so that you can stay in the suburb and home that you love.

Why Choose Elwood?

Elwood is St Kilda’s canal-side, green and lush neighbour, in close proximity to both the sea and the city. This is one of those storybook suburbs with a stunning canal that runs through the centre of it and winding streets lined with Art Deco mansions and spacious blocks of flats. While St Kilda may be a tourist attraction, Elwood is a neighbourhood that attracts buyers due to its village-style charm. The tree-lined streets either meander up to Elsternwick or down to the sea, past cafes, parks, and bowling clubs.
