Grand Victorian with a twist

This formal grand home in one of the most sought-after areas close to the city needed a major update when our client purchased the property.  We have worked with the client over a number of years to completely renovate, rework and extend the space significantly into something splendid; the latest changes have involved converting two of the many guest bedrooms into nurseries.  As you make your way through from the entrance, formal and traditional main rooms lead seamlessly into very specific and more contemporary styles that open out to the newly created conservatory, terrace and gardens, with extended garaging below ground
