Elegant Architecture Displayed by Renovated and Extended Victorian House

We enjoy observing complex renovation projects which preserve important visual features of the existing building. This particular Victorian home located in a suburb of Melbourne, Australia features quite a few exquisite details, most of them reminiscent of the building’s style heritage. Currently on sale for here, the project consists of a main renovated house and an annex envisioned in a highly contemporary manner. According to the official press release, this “stately and beautifully renovated and extended early Victorian balconied family residence with circular driveway, pool and separate self-contained accommodation is situated on a large garden allotment of 1265 square meters approximately. The house accommodates a normal lounge, separate dining room and study (each with open fireplace), powder room, kitchen/family meals area and informal living room opening to terrace and garden. Upstairs you can find the master bedroom with balcony, walk in robe and en-suite, three further bedrooms each with open fireplace, expansive bathroom and second study”. Enjoy the virtual tour and feel free to share your opinions below!

    The interior of the house isn’t my style but I love the facade. The front of the house reminds me of the houses I’ve seen in photos of New Orleans.

    Love what is going on in the facade… the balcony framing the white background wall. I was a bit shock by the back and how the old and new relate with each other. A little disappointed that the designer did not push the envelope the same as the front facade. The design went some what lazy, with a typical form.
