Northcote Home Renovation And Extensions Projects

It makes sense that lives change along with people’s needs. Whether this includes a growing family, the desire to add more features, or another room, homeowners often reach a stage where their home is no longer matching what they need or want. 

If you decided that you need more space or you want to make a few changes to your living environment, it is a much better idea to stay where you are and renovate or extend rather than selling up and moving to another suburb. This is where Period Extensions & Designs are here to help.

We have extensive experience when it comes to helping the residents of Northcote to maximise their living space with cleverly designed extensions and renovations that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also add capital value to the property.

Why Choose Northcote?

High on the hill, to the northeast of the city, you will find Northcote, an eccentric neighbourhood known for its laidback venues and cafes on High Street. Over the past few years, Northcote has blossomed into a multicultural, spirited, inner-city area that still gives you enough space to live a more relaxed lifestyle.

High Street is known for its plethora of cafes to choose from along with interesting band rooms, Westgarth Cinema, bike lanes, and boutiques. Residentially, you will find free-form, old-school gardens alongside new apartments and intricately renovated homes.
