3 Louisa St, Brunswick

by Dean Berman

A fantastic renovation to this 1880’s miner’s cottage in Melbourne.

Originally purchased for $880,000 in March 2019.

The property achieved approval for partial demolition of the existing dwelling for the construction of a ground floor extension.

New Dimension Drafting achieved the approval on this project.

The estimated cost of the extension and renovation was $300,000 according to council documents.

These costs can often be underestimated.

Sold for $1,907,000 by Greg Cusack and Dylan Francis of Jellis Craig.

I like the extension of 151m2 in addition to the original 30m2 residence and 10m2 porch. I like how the kitchen, living and dining has been moved and opened up to create a large open plan space. I like the materials used in the kitchen.
