Period Edwardian Extensions
Edwardian homes were built in the early 1900s and feature red brickwork or weatherboard, wooden framed verandahs and windows, wide hallways, mock-tudor cladding and timber at the top of the house and simple internal decorative, roofs made from slate or corrugated iron and beautiful leadlight windows.
Older Melbourne period homes like Edwardians require a builder such as Damer with an eye for detail and excellent craftsmanship skills. We have a passion for restoration and renovation of these beautiful period homes. Edwardian homes are commonly found in inner Eastern suburbs such as Hawthorn, Malvern, Glen Iris, Camberwell and Armadale. As the Edwardian period did not last for long the houses are not in huge numbers and often sought after by buyers.
Period home renovations usually require designing for modern living such as;
- Open plan living
- Extra bedrooms
- Extra bathrooms
- Ensuite bathrooms
- Kitchen renovation
- Adding a second storey or rear extension
