Leichhardt House 4 (Alterations & Additions)
An Edwardian era single fronted dwelling on a narrow lot, typical of Leichhardt, has been family owned for over 40 years as a rental property. It was in largely original condition &somewhat dilapidated. It is located in an aircraft noise affected zone & has heritage conservation controls. The brief was to alter the rear spaces to provide three bedrooms, two bathrooms & a combined living, dining and kitchen area at rear connecting to the private open space. Construction started in recently & it’s apparent that timber floors were badly rotted and plaster on the walls was “drummy” & needed replacement, so the interior was gutted. Work is continuing.
