Character Home Renovations

Renovating and extending character homes 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.

Addstyle Master Builders is the Perth character home renovation specialist with a reputation for outstanding craftsmanship and unparalleled attention to detail.


Every Perth Character Home Has A Story

Character homes have a special place in Perth’s suburban landscape. From California bungalows to federation homes and charming cottages, these unique heritage designs hold stories about Perth’s history.

Character home renovations and restorations are a highly specialised area of building. They don’t make them like they used to – and for that reason we keep a close eye on every detail to preserve the character that attracted you in the first place while integrating the features modern life demands.

Perth Heritage Homes with A Modern Update

Perth heritage homes often have features that need to be protected and hidden secrets that need to be anticipated, which can make a homeowner nervous to renovate. They can also be a trap for the inexperienced, including builders used to working with new construction.

Addstyle has over 30 years of experience bringing these beautiful pieces of Perth’s history up to modern standards, taking care not to damage or disturb heritage elements.

Addstyle has also been awarded multiple accolades for it’s work with character homes including twice winning the City of Stirling Heritage Award for Conservation and Restoration of a Heritage Place where Addstyle was commended for “demonstrating excellence in the restoration and extension of a heritage building”.

Your Home, Your Design

Most character homes were built at least a few decades ago when the technology and comforts we take for granted today were still science fiction.

In some cases, a charmingly eccentric design from yesteryear translates to strange floor plans, dated features and bedrooms that unsuitable for Perth families today.

With carefully considered design, you can still have the character home of your dreams with contemporary additions for modern living.

Working closely with you to bring your vision to life, our character home renovations seamlessly merge the old and new with bespoke designs that extend, or elegantly contrast, the existing home.

Character Home Renovations of Any Scale

Updating Perth character homes to meet the demands of modern life is our specialty, whether you are updating a tired laundry, extending through the old outdoor area or adding a second storey.

Today’s must-haves like spacious living areas, open plan kitchens, outdoor entertaining spaces, and bedrooms for the kids to grow into, are not usually features of Perth character homes. Allow us to work with you to integrate old-world charm into modern living spaces designed to suit your lifestyle.
