This double-fronted Victorian home has been revamped and revitalised after a contemporary extension was added by Abode Inspirations. The company designed and built the new part of the home, which was created in accordance with the clients’ desire for zoned living, alfresco dining and high-end products.

The house has been zoned to provide easy, efficient family living. The main bedroom with ensuite and the formal living area is in the front of the original house, while the children’s bedrooms, a bathroom, a powder room and a rumpus room are located upstairs. The extension has also added an integrated, open-plan kitchen/living/dining area that overlooks the pool.

Abode Inspirations had to contend with two difficulties: the block was small and also on a considerable slope. To overcome these issues, the available space was utilised judiciously, and a split-level design was decided upon to accommodate the slope.

The 6-star energy rated home now boasts a stunning fusion of both traditional and contemporary design elements, resulting in a unique and eye-catching house.

Abode Inspirations took care to ensure the extension made a statement, yet still blended seamlessly with the existing house. In doing so, contemporary design features – such as the alfresco living area and open-plan kitchen/living/dining space – work well with the more traditional elements, such as the claw-foot bath in the ensuite.

Timeless materials and products like a spotted gum feature window, outdoor fireplace, Caesarstone waterfall bench and European oak floors provide the best of both worlds, combining rich, durable textures with visual appeal that will last a lifetime.

Specialising in the design and construction of high-end new homes and extensions, Abode Inspirations completes 12–15 projects each year. The company works throughout Melbourne’s south-eastern and inner-eastern suburbs, with a concentration of projects in the area between Brighton and Kew.

Established 13 years ago by Glenn Hurley and Mathew Fluck, Abode Inspirations’ team has more than 30 years of combined industry experience, and at the heart of the business is a commitment to customer service by all staff.

The bulk of the company’s business is received via referrals; something the proprietors consider a testament to the reputation and professionalism of the Abode Inspirations’ team.

Whether your vision is for a new home or an extension, and regardless of whether you’d love a Victorian-style aesthetic or seek a contemporary design, Abode Inspirations would be pleased to discuss your plans and help you create a home that is as unique as you are.
