A major transformation of this Arts and Crafts style home has turned, what was once a tired ugly duckling, into a magnificent crafted residence.
The key to the transformation was the re-working of the mansted style roof and breaking down the massing to introduce sculptured elements, such a bay windows and balconies into the roof lines.
Another key driver in the design was the re-planning of the family room over the garage. This room was completely re-planned to showcase its location.
With the introduction of a new verandah both at the front and rear, the room now opens seamlessly out onto these verandahs, and also takes advantage of the openness to the west of the home and its aspects.
“John Hooghuis, the Design Director at Playoust Churcher Architects, had an inherent understanding of the brief, and his design created a classic Roseville family home with wonderful proportions, depth and detail. It’s now recognised as a stand-out in the area – people show down and stare as they drive past.”

Lisa is a keen gardener. In fact her passion was so great that she left her career in corporate insolvency to move into landscape design. So when she renovated her 6500m2 estate in St Ives, she started with the garden.
