As well, looking to the future for a growing family, the Owners recognized the need for more space for their children, larger bedrooms with an extra bedroom, separate living space, committed study area and another bathroom. This necessitated a second floor extension for the childrens’ wing, while the ground floor also received an amazing makeover in the Hamptons’ style
The Owners loved where they lived in a tranquil avenue in the leafy bayside suburb of Highett. They were conveniently close to some of Melbourne’s elite schools, excellent shopping villages, stunning beaches and many beautiful parks and gardens, one of which was at the end of their street.
They did not want to move away from the area, but they wished for a completely different look to their home. Whilst the existing modern ground floor residence was in excellent condition, it lacked character and charm and the Owners’ greatest wish was to have a Hamptons’ inspired home. So the façade design was crucially important in achieving this transformation.
