Addstyle Suburb Profile: Mount Lawley

1 Mar 2022

On the past 33 years, Addstyle Master Builder’s has completed many heritage and character home renovations, extensions, and second-storey extensions within the stylish inner northern suburb of Mount Lawley. We thought we’d delve a little deeper into some of the beautiful attractions Mt Lawley has to offer and share some insight into how you can transform an older home into a spacious modern abode.

Mt Lawley is regarded by many as one of Perth’s cultural hotspots. It is home to Beaufort Street, a busy road full of unique shops, boutiques, restaurants, and bars. You’ll find larger blocks with early 20th-century heritage homes, many with modern renovations. Mt Lawley properties often sit at the top end of the market, and you can expect to pay a premium for a fully renovated and modernised heritage home.

Home to many heritage-listed properties

Known as a dynamic, funky suburb, many people are drawn to Mt Lawley due to its proximity to the city, along with its established properties and beautiful parks. One of the biggest drawcards to property buyers is the many character homes, which sit proudly on large blocks. However, a significant portion of the suburb falls under the control of the City of Stirling and has Heritage Precinct designation. This designation means that planning laws protect many houses, restricting the demolition of older buildings. While the City of Vincent is somewhat flexible in the type and style of housing development and renovations it allows, it too can refuse requests to demolish older homes. As a result the area has a large stock of period homes that have been carefully renovated to modern standards.

These local authority restrictions don’t have to hold you back from renovating or extending your Mt Lawley home. If you have purchased a home in Mt Lawley and want to remodel, start by talking to a home renovation builder with experience transforming heritage-listed homes.

Consult an experienced heritage home builder

At Addstyle we offer a truly comprehensive design-and-build renovation service. Our team can advise you on any local design guidelines or restrictions for your area, and if necessary, undertake lobbying, or drafting of design justification submissions on your behalf. While design guidelines for heritage-listed homes often require you to protect the home’s original character, our designers can work with you to create a design that incorporates modern living while also retaining old world charm. The goal is to upgrade and modernise the home it without losing its innate beauty.

To transform your heritage home in Perth, you’ll need an experienced builder who understands how to seamlessly meld federation home elements with modern styles.
