Heritage Listed Homes
Building Your Dream Into Reality
Heritage-listed homes have a unique set of building standards. If you are looking to buy a heritage property you need to fully understand the prevailing restrictions, particuarly if you are planning to extend or renovate.
At Lawson & Lovell, we are experienced in building modern homes within heritage restrictions or restoring properties to the original heritage style. In our experience, every heritage building project has specific individual requirements. For a client in Manly, we had to completely restructure most of the existing internal walls, whilst retaining elements such as chimneys, feature arches, large skirtings and architraves.
You need to trust your builder to have the expertise to comply with the building codes so you avoid expensive issues prior to completion. The Lawson & Lovell team will ensure your heritage build is hassle-free and respects the heritage values of the original property.
“Thanks once again for a first-class job at our Augusta Rd house. The team was every bit as professional, organized, efficient and competent as last time (if not more) and just as proactive and courteous.
The transformation of the house is absolutely remarkable – Federation character, but re-built with 2008 components. To be receiving compliments from Manly’s Heritage people is a huge endorsement of the result. Thanks also for your help getting all the approvals for Reddall Street – we know it was tedious.
Although we’re going to defer serious work for the time being, this is a major investment for us and to have been able to leave matters in your hands, knowing you’d deal with it like you would your own house was such a relief. As always, we’d be delighted to speak to any prospective clients who are looking for a reference.”
