Originally constructed in the early 1900s, this magnificent abode stands as a testament to the region’s heritage, now proudly listed as such. Lifestyle Builders embarked on an ambitious journey to preserve its rich legacy while incorporating modern luxuries.

The transformation is awe-inspiring. We meticulously replaced the old slate roof, enhancing its durability and aesthetic allure. Every window was painstakingly replaced with double-glazed panes, seamlessly marrying the charm of yesteryears with the efficiency of today. Our commitment to preservation shines through as we retained the original chimney, a labor of engineering expertise and a nod to the home’s historical significance.

Inside no detail was spared. Every inch received a loving touch – from the meticulously restored ornate fretwork to the pristine surfaces, new hydronic heating system and zoned ducted heating and cooling for ultimate comfort. The custom joinery throughout exudes sophistication, a testament to Lifestyle Builders’ unwavering dedication to quality.

And the surprises didn’t stop there Lifestyle Builders ingeniously carved out a cellar beneath the ground floor showcasing our innovative approach to space utilisation and structural reinforcement. A new gym and entertainment room thoughtfully designed in a modern style stand as a harmonious addition, enhancing the home without overshadowing its historic charm.
