Richmond Victorian Cottage Turned into a Spacious Home

An inner city sanctum. Richmond in Melbourne is full of little Victorian cottages, double and single fronted houses, many with older style high pitched roofs. Making the most of this bonus is easy with the right advice and expertise.

Attic Group converted unused roof space in this house into a stunning new home featuring a new lounge, two new bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. From the street you don’t notice this gem, but inside the rear of the home opens out into a huge new kitchen, dining room and family area.

Finished in original and new timber flooring, clean white finished walls it surprises the visitor and delights the owners. A beautiful natural wood stairway, climbing up around the old sitting room leads to the stunning new upstairs living area. Natural light from a skylight in the upstairs lounge combined with a high ceiling gives an open and airy feel to the new space.

At the back where the two new bedrooms are we have large windows on one side and narrow horizontal windows facing west to let in afternoon light. A roof lift in this part of the home has allowed more space without any street view changes. Very clever!

And the owners love it. Taking an older Victorian home that is notoriously dark and poky and changing it into a light and spacious home without changing the basic footprint is a classic Attic Group advantage.
