An Old-to-New Extension and Reno – in Templestowe


Render yourself a whole new home lifestyle in Melbourne with a renovation make-over by Lifestyle By Design.

As an older home on a sloping block, with a side entry, a carport, and very little entertainment space, this Templestowe home had all the potential in the world to become a brand new version of itself.  Where there was once no street appeal, LBD has just completed the project and the owner’s dream of a modern-looking house in a fabulous location has finally come true.

The extension aspects of the project were carried out to make this home ever so much more appealing in its appearance, which has added certain value to it as an investment longer term.

LBD carefully demolished the existing carport and replaced it with a new double garage with an expanded crossover, a coloured concrete driveway and paths to suit.  We also created a front door entry with enclosed verandah (now facing the road), and with a new coat of render and a splash of neutral toned paint, the entire house has now been further embellished to transition what was a tired property, to one with the WOW Factor!  The front garden has also been re-landscaped, with matching, rendered block garden beds for a consistent and fresh look.

Not content to just operate on its front exterior, the owner also commissioned a fabulous new verandah to be positioned behind the garage – and outdoor entertaining is now a breeze with its mains gas barbeque, kitchenette with running water and a built-in bar fridge, sectioned off for added privacy from neighbouring properties.

Lifestyle By Design is proud, once again, to have been able to enhance the lifestyle of another happy client with this Custom Renovation and Extension in Melbourne.

“What we pictured is exactly what we got with Lifestyle By Design.  Everything was done perfectly and in a very timely manner.  The communication between ourselves and Brad and Nick was outstanding – they went above and beyond, they were very accommodating and easy to deal with, and they kept a spotlessly clean workspace throughout our renovations and extension. And the end result is just fantastic!  We will happily use Lifestyle by Design for future projects.  Michelle Molloy, Templestowe (2016)
