Reinventing your holiday house as your permanent residence has many advantages, Graeme Alexander Homes can unlock its potential. For this project, the owners wanted their 30-year-old weekender transformed into their primary residence. When they approached us, the pair asked for plenty of space for their grown-up family on the weekends and also all creature comforts – something the holiday house lacked.

Site restrictions meant the external shape had to be retained but the floor plan was totally reworked over three levels – creating a modern layout that optimises the elevated views. Despite limited space, a new garage was achieved by pushing into the sandy soil to the rear of the block. This also created a convenient access to the lower-level living spaces.The new first floor has an extended family space, two bedrooms, a bathroom, rumpus and large laundry. An entry deck and studio provides privacy to the main deck while the repositioned internal stair offers an easy transition from the entry to the now expansive upper level spaces.

The remodelled living and dining areas and a large kitchen are all on the upper level. There is also a reading room, which brings privacy to the expansive external deck. The master bedroom is at the back but it too enjoys the views. It includes an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe, powder room and guest bedroom.

Our makeovers not only maximise living potential, they will also enhance the value of your property.
