Hawksburn Home Renovations And Extensions Projects

In these extremely uncertain times, the way we use our houses has become more important than ever. How functional is your home? How comfortable is it and how much is it costing you to run? This is the first time many homeowners have had to juggle family commitments, school, and work from home. 

If you need more space around your home, and before you decide to put your house on the market, you could benefit from a professional home extension or luxury home renovation. This option will also allow you to carry on staying in Hawksburn and avoid the costs and disruption associated with moving. This is where you need expert advice from a company like Period Extensions & Designs.

We have decades of experience working with homeowners in the Hawksburn area to transform their current living arrangements into something they are proud of with cleverly designed home renovations and extensions, and we can help you too.

Why Choose Hawksburn?

Hawksburn is a popular residential area just 5 kilometres southeast of Melbourne. This area derived its name from the Hawksburn House (located close to where the railway station was later built). 

Hawksburn which is actually not a suburb is not the only one in this area. It shares this “suburb, but not a suburb” status with Oak Park, Regent, and Westgarth. It air kisses Prahan to the south and Toorak to the east, but mostly appears to be South Yarra, with slivers of the others thrown in. 

It is easy to see why Hawksburn holds such appeal. Even though busy roads cut through this area, it is similar to an enclave. It also has just about impenetrable and extremely narrow roads sheltered by beautiful elm trees that line the streets.

Hawksburn Lifestyle

Hawksburn is probably better known for the nearby “Hawksburn Village” a small shopping centre strip on Malvern Road and its railway station. Many of the terraces and older homes of South Yarra are situated near the railway station and Cromwell Crescent in the Hawksburn area. 

This shopping strip has changed over the years from the “everyday service” retailers to a combination of easy to access kerbside parking and specialist retailers, which is in contrast to crowded Chapel Street in Prahran. 

Types Of Homes In Hawksburn

The elevated land in Hawsburn above Prahan has attracted several large residences, home to residents that favoured this site due to its superior drainage. There are also a few modest homes and the Horrace Petty Estate of the Highrise Housing Commission.
