Southern Highlands Manor House Renovation

As a skilled Builder, we had the honour of undertaking a truly remarkable project; a renovation of a charming historic Southern Highlands home into a breathtaking masterpiece that honours its past.

Throughout the renovation process, we remained committed to preserving the historic charm and character of the home, down to the detail of the traditional seagrass carpet flooring . Every decision was made with careful consideration, ensuring that the architectural integrity of the property was honoured. This delicate balance between old and new created a unique ambiance that instantly captivate all who enter.

A quirky studio room was simplified and reconceived as the master bedroom. Underfloor heating was installed and existing storage reconfigured as extensive wardrobes. The result was a bedroom that exuded tranquility and offered a harmonious sanctuary opening outwards to the special garden of this property.

In addition to the bedroom makeover, the renovation included the conversion of an old bedroom into a sun lounge, adding a delightful space for relaxation and leisure. This sunlit haven became a place to bask in the warmth of natural light, immersing oneself in a book or simply savouring moments of quiet contemplation. The careful selection of comfortable seating, soft textiles, and strategically placed lighting ensured that this sun lounge became a cherished spot for unwinding and rejuvenation.

The bathroom and laundry areas were in need of an upgrade, guided by our unwavering determination to honour the home’s nostalgic character, we embarked on a journey to create spaces that seamlessly blend modern functionality with a captivating sense of history. With consultation between our client and our suppliers we carefully handpicked fixtures with a touch of old-world to infuse a sense of sophistication and refinement into these everyday spaces.

The kitchen renovation creates a culinary sanctuary that pays homage to the rich heritage of the home, while infusing it with modern functionality. Rich, warm timbers paired perfectly with modern joinery. The countertops, imitation stone paired with the existing, original wallpaper create an instant feeling of homeliness. The result is a kitchen that transports you to a bygone era, where culinary delights are prepared amidst an ambiance of timeless beauty and authenticity.

The successful completion of this historic home renovation is a testament to our unwavering dedication to quality craftsmanship and attention to detail and is a fine example of what can be achieved when a Builder and a client collaborate on a project.
This project stands as a proud showcase of our capabilities as builders and our commitment to Southern Highlands historic architecture.

Client led renovation




” We have loved working with Rob and Gabbee. They are positive, relaxed and highly professional. Their communication skills are second to none so we always knew exactly what was happening each day.
Everything in our renovation ran to schedule and budget except for our own variations. Their apprentices are good hard workers and the trades used were reliable. Their work standards are high and the finished product is of equally high quality.
What we really liked was their optimistic attitude, Rob is always in a good mood and presents an cheerful face. He is always willing to find a solution for the demands of the client or the unexpected problem a heritage renovation can present. . . “
