"welwyn" sandy bay residence.
The site is located on the corner of Sandy Bay Road and Ashfield Street. There is an existing dwelling on the site, which is individually listed on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. The main house fronts Sandy Bay Road, with the main outdoor living area and courtyard located at the rear of the property.
This high end extension incorporates a sophisticated blend of sandstone, painted steel and timber on the exterior surfaces, whilst wrapping around a modern, bright kitchen inside.
The scope of the proposed development is isolated to the rear, East Facing portion of the existing building. Works include; renovating the existing kitchen, replacing existing windows and increasing opening dimensions to allow additional light to enter the building and improve the connection with the rear courtyard. The existing awning will be removed and replaced with a new awning that is more sympathetic to the qualities of the house and provides an improved outdoor amenity. Minor internal works are proposed to the original maids quarters to convert the current storage space into a study and library.
