This house, located in the Naremburn Conservation Area, is an award-winning project, having won the 2000 Willoughby City Council Heritage Award for alterations and additions.
This dwelling consisted of five rooms with a series of small tacked-on rooms at the rear so that the house was dark and there were no living spaces that related to the garden. A condemned garage opened onto a rear lane.
Much upgrading was required in the existing dwelling. Fireplaces, glazing, flooring and fencing were all renewed.
By inserting a new north-facing Terrace to the west of the existing Living Room, light was admitted to the Hall and both the Living and a new Family Room open directly onto this new outdoor space. A large Kitchen opens onto the new Family Room. The Family Room also opens onto a rear verandah which overlooks a landscaped rear garden. A cottage garden was installed in the front garden.
