This 30-year-old beauty, with incredible bones was looking tired and in need of some works and additions to help her shine again. Starting with the internal work, including hundreds of square meters of extensive preparation, the ceiling and wall features of this home were painted from top to bottom.

Existing cupboards in bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were also modified to create shaker style faces (using existing cupboards) to ‘freshen’ up the look of these doors. Externally, a new patio extension has been implemented to join the two wings of the home creating a large, usable outdoor entertaining area, to make the most of the stunning ocean and backyard views.

What was once a four bedroom, two bathroom home now boasts five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a fully equiped capana pool bar and enormous entertaining rear deck overlooking the ocean.
