Old meets new

Merrivale Road, Pymble

In Brief…

  • Complete renovation and rear extension
  • Federation features were maintained and restored to their former beauty where possible
  • The new extension, including kitchen and bathroom is modern and crisp
  • Landscaping by Select Landscaping

Old meets new in this complete renovation and rear extension to this federation home. The client appointed Select Construction to renovate this house ready for the market.

The front façade didn’t require too much love and attention, just a fresh coat of paint really, the magic happens when you enter to home, graced by beautiful high ceilings, the hardwood floors were restored to their original beauty with new federation skirting being installed, the traditional federation style of this home continues through the entry hall which then opens to the newly extended living areas.

The exposed rafters, large format tiles and crisp white kitchen create a modern feel at the rear of the house and the large glass doors and windows allow you to relax while overlooking the generous backyard, which together with Select Landscaping was given a complete overhaul.

One of the highlights of this project are the beautiful high ceilings, to make the most of the space, a study loft was built above the new kitchen.

The renovation allowed our client to sell the house for a price over and above what was initially expected.

“Important points you should know about Daniel Overton at Select Construction

 Fear of the unknown is a concern for anyone who is planning to build, renovate or extend the family home. This ‘fear’ was soon laid to rest for us when we engaged Daniel Overton to revamp our home. Daniel runs a construction business that goes beyond the normal. He kept us in the know and informed us of the consequences to any changes that were made by us and outside of the scope of our agreement. Daniel made the process of choosing a builder, pricing the project, listening and understanding each other, agreeing on the process, getting it done, and Presenting an incredible final outcome – a very easy experience, with no fears.

The best part is the way Daniel Overton goes about his business. He is totally professional, has high standards, is a good time keeper finishing everything on budget and on time. Our experience with Daniel was a team effort. But the most favourable aspect of this project was outside of what you experience with any good construction company. It is that above everything else, Daniel Overton and his team at Select Construction are really nice people too.”
