10 Award Winning Character Home Renovations in Perth.

Renovating and extending a character home is a highly specialised area of building. Craftsmanship of the highest standard is required to ensure that the features of an older style home are carefully integrated into the new addition. Here are ten character homes that were renovated so well that they were recognised as the best in their class.

This project has been renovated twice by Addstyle Master Builders, for two separate owners, once in the 90’s and again in 2012.

The most recent renovation began with the construction of a freestanding double garage to the front of the home in keeping with the character of the original home. A carport was also constructed on the opposite side of the property.

An existing rear bathroom, Laundry and WC were demolished and replaced with new construction and the existing Kitchen was also stripped out and extensively remodelled. 

This home won a coveted Master Builders Association Housing excellence award in 2013.

This home has also been renovated twice by Addstyle. A second storey addition was added in 2010 and went on to win an MBA award as well as a City of Stirling heritage award. Tragically a fire gutted the home in 2013, however, there was only one builder that the clients would trust to rebuild the entire home from the ground up.

This home won the multiple awards in 2016 including it’s MBA Alterations & Additions price category, another City of Stirling Heritage Award and the coveted 2016 MBA Alteration & Addition of the Year.

This project in a leafy Subiaco avenue began with the conversion of an underutilised formal dining room into a staircase and void area which led to a new second storey.

The second storey addition accommodates three bedrooms, a bathroom and an activity room.

Feature awning and casement timber windows, ornate cornices and ceiling roses were incorporated throughout in keeping with the original home.

Careful attention to detail on the exterior, such as feature eaves and moldings provided a seamless addition that is respectful to the original character of the home.
