UNDER CONSTRUCTION: RED BRICK BEAUTY

We have just begun an enormous renovation of this large family property that would feel right at home in the 1970s. Let us take you on our journey through the renovation process as we transform this tired 1970s house into a stylish family home fit for 2017 and beyond.

The exterior of the house will have a solid scrub and fresh coat of paint on all the woodwork, but we will retain the iconic red bricks that perfectly complement the colour of the surrounding greenery as well as maintain a feeling of authenticity.

Inside it’s a different story. We are happy to say goodbye to the overwhelming red and brown brick covering most internal walls. It’s time to freshen up, lighten up & open up the space!

We love the location and the generous and lush garden surrounding the home. No stone will be left unturned as we are also collaborating with a gorgeous landscaper to transform our clients' beloved outdoor oasis into a new yet classic sanctuary.
