Art Deco Gem Polished to Perfection

Surrounded by spectacular homes in one of Moonee Ponds’ premier streetscapes, our clients at 42 Park Street were looking to give their clinker-brick classic a new lease on life with a dramatic renovation and extension whilst retaining the home’s distinctive character.

The project included retaining and rejuvenating the home’s four front principal rooms as well as integrating a new extension at the rear including two new bathrooms and powder room, open-plan living/dining leading out to an alfresco entertaining area.

Given the block’s relatively narrow frontage (approx 11.5m) and no rear access to utilize, just as much time was spent on ‘how’ we’d build as to ‘what’ we’d build.

Totally transformed for luxurious twenty-first century living, the gain was certainly worth the pain.

Along with 3 bedrooms, home office/lounge, 2 luxurious bathrooms and guest power room (third WC), the home’s key features also include a pitched cathedral ceiling (33 degrees) in the open living area taking advantage of its north-facing aspect, sleek modern kitchen with walk-in pantry, full-size laundry, attic storage space, integrated air conditioning, as well as a sensational al-fresco deck (Blackbutt) with built-in BBQ kitchen.

A home now worthy of its prestigious position.
