When the clients purchased this home, they had plans to personalise the design and ensure it accommodated the needs of their family. The small post-war home was built in the 1950s and was in need of an aesthetic revamp as well as a practical overhaul to suit the owners’ needs.

Two key parts of the brief they provided to Hille’s Home Extensions were for special fittings and wheelchair access for their eldest daughter, and a first floor extension to ensure there was room for the pool they longed for.

Hille’s Home Extensions was recommended to the couple by family and friends, and once they invited Hille’s designer to visit and talk through their ideas to establish the design of their extension, they never looked back.

On the ground floor, the space previously containing two bedrooms and the kitchen was combined to provide accommodation for the children, with a dual access ensuite to both new bedrooms. The living area retained in the original part of the house serves as a welcome retreat and entertainment area.

The rear of the house was demolished, and then extended, in order to make room for the stunning new open-plan kitchen, dining and family area. A built-in laundry has been located adjacent to the kitchen. This part of the home flows beautifully to the outdoors, and has become a firm favourite of the family’s.

The veranda and paved entertainment area spans the length of the home, providing an excellent outdoor area that adjoins the pool and is perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

The landscaping and decking in the back yard was carefully planned to ensure a low-maintenance result. The new garage has a toilet and storeroom and opens up to the home to provide undercover passage. The first floor has been tailored to the couple’s needs, with a spacious main bedroom with a walk-in robe and ensuite and a retreat/home office space.

By tailoring the design to the clients’ unique needs, Hille’s Home Extensions has fulfilled the required brief and ensured the homeowners have a new and improved home that will make them happy for years to come.
