FOR anyone thinking of renovating, take inspiration from the high-end design and construction from Glenway Homes of a period 1937 cottage in Mt Lawley.
“The project presented many challenges as parts of the existing house had already been renovated internally only two years prior and these areas had to be maintained,” managing director John Woodford said.
The 80-year-old home has been modernised for a young family to include a new carport, front elevation, ground-floor ensuite, alfresco area, swimming pool, games room and upper floor including a main bedroom, ensuite, powder room, study and gallery.
Glenway Homes used its talented pool of experienced tradespeople to incorporate traditional elements such as the steep roof pitch, timber frieze work to verandas, tuck pointing, leadlight windows, honey-combed ceiling to the alfresco, tessellated tiling to the front veranda and polished jarrah timber floorboards in entry, lounge, guest and children’s bedrooms.
One of the home’s features is the timber stairs in the entry with a large chandelier in the void and a strategically located gable window providing natural light year round.
This home, at 53 North Street, Mt Lawley, can be viewed on Saturdays from 11am to 1pm, and Sundays from 11am to 3pm until Sunday, May 8.
