Kirkstall Close, Frankston South
Completed April 2019
INSPIRATION: This project was my family home. After living in the home for a number of years to get a feeling for the space and energy of the property, we redesigned and the aesthetics. Every element of the home was updated, from the space planning to the façade and the interior, to suit our vision of a functional modern coastal-influenced home.
TARGET MARKET: We renovated the property to suit our family and our lifestyle. The goal was to create a home that matched our vision of exactly how we wanted to live. We absolutely loved the result. As it happened when we decided to take it to market, everyone else loved it too.
LOCATION: From my earliest days working in real estate, I always had a vision of living in this serene and stylish location. It was an idyllic place to raise a family and I had envisaged bringing up my children in this special Kirkstall Court community.
DESIGN INTENT: With any renovation, there are limitations in terms of site and size. We transitioned the home from a sandstone-coloured rendered brick house with a Mediterranean feel into a modern coastal weatherboard home. The very special family memories created in Kirkstall, where we shared laughter and love, will remain with us always and maintain this one of our favourite family homes.
