PlaceMakers Renovation Award over $250,000


This house, originally built in 1939, has a classic feel and is set in the middle of Lower Hutt on 3/4 of an acre of land, nestled amongst mature trees. The owners wanted the renovation to combine the character and plain lines of the 1930s with the modern features of today. 

To achieve this and create that allimportant indoor/outdoor fl ow, extra family living space was added. Warm natural colours flow throughout the rooms, trim colours match the exterior and bold colours mark the children’s rooms. 

The downstairs bathroom floor was given a new lease of life with stunning timber vanity tops in both bathrooms. Timber borders edge the dining and living room floors and frame the luxurious forest green carpet. The modern kitchen, being the hub of the family home, is positioned towards the sunny outdoor courtyard. 

Its oyster tones create an atmosphere of carefree living.
