Re-boot on Rita: when the full architectural treatment turns a solid Rostrevor classic into something special
With the architectural extension to match its inspired transformation, this 4-bedroom re-boot of a solid brick classic is living proof that strong bones and a vision can be much better than a cookie cutter new build.
That vision came to fruition in 2015, when owners and architect took a humble 1967-built abode we’ve all seen before in sought Rostrevor, and turned it into something pretty special some 625sqm.
We’ll start where this now 4-bedroom home saves its best for last; an open-plan extension with soaring ceilings, stackable doors to bring the outside in, a prized north-easterly aspect, and high louvres that cleverly leverage a cross ventilated gully breeze and even more natural light.
The open-plan rear is not only lined in striking floating floors, but bookended by a timber-decked patio and a head-turning kitchen with Caesarstone tops, big breakfast bar, plenty of storage and Smeg appliances.
If the kitchen is the star of the extension, then the master suite is a worthy support act thanks to its walk-in robe and sleek ensuite – one of two bathrooms, each with full height tiling.
A rendered façade, new carpets, and fresh licks of paint ensure the smoothest transition from addition to an original home that also retains its front lounge room so you have another living space up your sleeve alongside three nicely sized kids’ bedrooms.
Suddenly, what could have made way for that boring cookie cutter is now worthy of a suburb that puts Rostrevor College, the last of the original delicatessens, the walking trails of Morialta and much more on your everyday radar. It’s time to make that vision your reality.
