Freshwater Home Renovation
Oliver Street, Freshwater

Project Overview

The clients engaged us to look at this large scale Freshwater home renovation project in Oliver St initially to renovate the entire ground floor level in this well located residential premises.

The client came to us with some old plans after having a second storey built on the house 5 or so years prior.

The clients were not entirely happy with this layout so we referred them on to a trusted architectural contact for redesign.

The resulting redesign was a much more modern, open plan space that suited the clients vision and the ‘beachy’ feel of the residence. It also much better suited the Freshwater area.

The resulting design included a new kitchen, dining space, bathroom, laundry, office nook and 3 living zones.

2 of the living areas could be separated by a sliding series of full height doors, which created a very clever extra bedroom for when family came to stay.

Brand new Trend Quantum- semi commercial range windows and James Hardies linea weatherboards finished the picture externally.

Before Snapshot

The property was a 1930’s weatherboard ‘beach shack’ located close to the shopping area at Freshwater and a short trip to access the world famous Freshwater Beach.

Interestingly, some old newspapers were found in the demolition from the 1930’s era. The clients loved them so much they framed them and hung them on the wall!.

The residence had second storey addition added around 5 yrs previously, however the ground floor had not been renovated due to budget constraints at the time.

Client Brief

The clients contacted David Ferrari Constructions initially to discuss the complete renovation of the lower level of the home.

After viewing the existing D.A. plans the decision was made to refer the clients on to a trusted architect contact for a redesign of the previous plans, which were not suited to the clients vision or project brief.

The subsequent redesign of the ground level was a much better fit to the family and boasted a spacious, open plan style of living with a real beach feel, completely suited to the area and the clients lifestyle.
