Mont Albert

The Mont Albert Californian Bungalow style home was built in the early to mid 1900’s. A typical single weatherboard home with endless amounts of character and limited space for a modern living.

This project involved an all over master renovation and extension. The project included three bedrooms, a large bathroom with separate toilet and a TV area upstairs. Downstairs new big free flowing living spaces were created and brought together with clever design, select materials and well planned landscaping.

The entire back of the house was opened up to expose and invite light and space. A modern kitchen, large dining area, undercover outdoors alfresco and study nook were founded on a split-level to accommodate the slope of the backyard. An identically matched carport was also added to ensure the home maintained it’s authentic, classical and dateless aura.
