We have altered this two bedroom 1911 Queen Anne period brick cottage to accommodate a family of six. We retained the existing front bedroom and converted the second bedroom into a bathroom, laundry and stair to two children’s bedrooms over.
A 2.2m wide space to the north of the house allows winter sun to penetrate each room. A deck wrapping the north-west corner is shaded by a large West Australian Pepper tree and cantilevered pergola. New openings, distinguished by clear finished timber frames, draw the garden into the living spaces.
