This charming terrace, in beachside Manly, received a stylish Northern Beaches renovation, extension and second-storey addition, bringing it into the 21st century whilst still retaining its charm and appeal.

The owners of this two-bedroom semi-detached terrace adored the location however they had outgrown the compact living areas.  The solution was to extend into the rear courtyard and add a second storey.

Two roomy bedrooms and a new bathroom were included in the second-storey addition.

The rear of the terrace was completely removed and extended to increase the kitchen and informal living area.

Large, full-width bi-fold doors created a seamless flow from the informal kitchen and informal living area directly onto the new pergola and deck.

We built privacy screens on either side of the deck and a new roof transformed the area into a private oasis that can be used by the owners all year round.

Our cabinet makers and custom joiners created the kitchen cabinetry and entertainment units in the kitchen and informal living area in the same style to create continuity.

The original downstairs bathroom and laundry were also renovated.

Only a short stroll to Manly Beach, it was important the home catered to the owner’s casual, coastal lifestyle.  With sandy feet a daily occurrence, the carpets in the downstairs areas were replaced with easy-care Blackbutt timber floors.

To retain the street appeal of the property, the facade was painted, the original fence was rendered and painted, and timber infills were added.
