A home transformation in Fairlight, Sydney

Last Updated Dec 6, 2017 · Written by Philippa Land

This beautiful free-standing house on the Sydney northern beaches of Fairlight has had a complete renovation from front facade to kitchen, bathroom, as well as bedrooms by the expert builders at Belle Bathrooms

The before and after pictures really capture the massive revamp the property has had. The house is almost unrecognisable from the before pics with newly created rooms and stairwells, giving new life to previously unused parts of the house.

The front veranda has had a huge facelift, transforming to an enclosed area with the house and moving the front door to create a new modern foyer to include the fresh new stairwell.   

Every room in this home was restyled, including the kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms etc. In the photos below, you can also see a stylish media room has been created from an uninhabitable space in the now downstairs area, and as well you can see the original sandstone walls that have been covered in.

The challenge of low headroom meant most of the labour needed to be done by hand, as machinery was not an option. From start to completion this renovation took 7 months of construction time. However, the rewards of the job are huge, as this old rundown home has transformed into a stylish functional home with all the bells and whistles the family needed.
