Fitzroy North Renovations And Home Extensions Projects

Over the past few years, Fitzroy North has experienced remarkable gentrification attracting buyers who are looking for a cosmopolitan lifestyle, high levels of infrastructure, and inner-city proximity typical of the area. Solid price growth and rising buyer activity were experienced throughout the years from 2015. 

If you already own a home in this love suburb but it no longer fulfils your lifestyle or has become too small for a growing family, it may be a smart idea to hold on to your property and renovate or extend rather than sell. There are many superb ideas that you can use to extend and modernise your Fitzroy North property.

Natural light is often a challenge with double-storey terraces. Fortunately, there are many clever ways to bring light into every corner of a home. A central light well in the kitchen and an open plan dining room with west-facing windows will flood the downstairs area with light and large bay windows in upstairs bedrooms will also increase the light exposure.

These are just a few simple ideas that we can help you out with at Period Extensions & Designs. We have decades of expertise when it comes to maximising the potential of your property with cleverly planned renovations and extensions.

Fitzroy North Lifestyle

About 20 years ago Fitzroy North was a suburb that consisted mostly of Italian and Greek migrants with students living in shared housing. Today it is once again an affluent family suburb with lush green parklands and tree-lined streets. Over the years the local boutiques and street cafes became ever groovier and house prices climbed steadily. 

According to a local agent, there are probably more medicos and lawyers living in North Fitzroy than in any other suburb in Melbourne. Edinburgh Gardens forms a lovely centrepiece at the heart of the suburb and there are 3 great shopping villages on Queens Parade, St. Georges Road, and Nicholson Street. 

On warm sunny days, the parks are full of picnic lovers and it’s a favourite place for pet lovers to take their dogs for a walk in the evenings. For fitness enthusiasts, there is a sporting field, 2 playgrounds, and a tennis club. The local supermarket Piedemonte’st has been a fixture in the area since the 1960s with old-fashioned customer service and continental gourmet produce.

Types Of Homes In Fitzroy North

A large number of lovely weatherboard and Victorian brick terraces of old have been transformed by architect-designed renovations. The grand proportions and elaborate facades of many of the homes date back to the early boom years of the Victorian era when wealthy merchants who had profited from the gold rush lived there.
