Mulberry Homes was commissioned to construct a classic American Hampton-style home (designed by Ariane Prevost Architect). The jarrah weatherboard and brick home has extensive use of timber both inside and out with large areas of timber panelling to internal walls and timber lining boards to all ceilings. Its main features are a sheoak timber shingle roof and solid jarrah timber windows and doors.
The external areas were meticulously landscaped to the client’s rigid specifications. The scope of works included the pool, water features, alfresco areas, crazy paving, timber fences, gates and plantings in order to produce a complete home ready to move into.
The home was in need of a new modern extension, with a pool and alfresco area to suit the home entertainer.
The unique challenge in the renovation of this beautiful 600sqm, north-facing Subiaco block was the significant fall from the front to the rear laneway.
The existing four front rooms of the period home were renovated, while a new, modern extension incorporated the basement and parking.
Highlights include polished concrete floors in the living area, washed aggregate concrete in the alfresco area and dado rendered feature walls both inside and out.

Mulberry Homes was asked to provide an elegant and timeless living space to a 1980’s second hand brick home. The home is positioned on a very narrow block and has a wonderful location opposite a park.
The new addition included a new kitchen and meals area, and a courtyard al fresco area that seamlessly joined with the kitchen/dining area. They were asked to renovate the existing living space and rebuild the staircase to the loft.
Today, the home’s entrance is half way down the side of the house, accessed through two courtyards. This creates a tranquil and serene transition from the street to the inner sanctum of the home. Extensive use of white wood panelling and classical features gives the home a bright and sunny aspect.
Our clients were able to live on site and had total involvement in designing their new home.
The brief was to design and build a modern, crisp, clean line two-storey home from a 1970’s brown face brick monopitch tiled-roof house.
Design was to make use of the structure/plan footprint of the existing house and maximise the open space garden area.
The existing rear two–storey concrete structure was supported by steel beams and columns to achieve a large family, kitchen, meals area leading to new pool alfresco area. Upstairs bedroom areas were unchanged and new two-storey façade constructed with new games room & lounge complete with new custom orb roof and gutters.
Designed to replicate the Hampton homes in the New England region of America, this residence was built using conventional techniques to ensure budget constraints were met (designed by Ariane Prevost Architect). All the necessary design features for modern living are represented in this home including a large kitchen, fully appointed kitchen, open plan living space on to a large alfresco and pool area.
Features include timber arched and sash windows, polished jarrah floors, open cut stringer handrails on the staircase, & clay tiles specially imported from the UK.
