This project involved a major luxury home renovation and addition, plus a pool to a home in Dover Heights, Sydney. The existing property comprised an old and small single level two bed cottage over an existing garage on 450m2 of sloping land with westerly harbour views


Julian, an entrepreneur and Judy, a futures trader, had a young growing family comprising two young boys. They wanted a new triple storey home with main bed, en suite and study on the top floor, two beds, bathroom, open plan living, dining, kitchen and large entry hall on the mid level and rumpus, bathroom, laundry, double garage with internal access plus pool at ground level. Living areas were to be seamless with large external terrace areas using bifolding aluminium doors, maximising privacy with aluminium bifold louvres and maximising views with glass balustrades.


Finishes were to be upmarket being stone and large ceramic tiles to wet areas, timber floors to formal living areas and stone to the rumpus and staircase, carpet to the bedrooms, reverse cycle airconditioning, granite benchtops, polyurethane built ins throughout and views to be maximised.


Domus Homes designed a modern 300m2 net internal executive residence with 120m2 of external undercover terrace areas.


The house was built in full cavity brickwork and concrete. Development Approval took twelve months and construction took 14 months.


Referral from Julian Emery…


“I came across Domus Homes via a mail drop of their marketing flier. I had planned to renovate our California cottage which we were now outgrowing as our two kids needed more space, as did my wife and I.


Being a corporate business person, it was important to me that the service be professionally and efficiently run in a manner I could appreciate. After doing my market research and having seen some Domus Homes projects, the decision to go with David and his team was made even easier by the competitive nature of his fees combined with all the additional financial advantages they offer. David also added value in negotiating the best price and conditions with the preferred builder whose quality has been excellent.


Through the course of the project, David has consistently been there when I needed him and we have developed an excellent working relationship amounting to an exceptional and outstanding home deserving of its landmark location, thanks to his broad experience, knowledge and network and his desire to surpass his clients’ expectations.


We do not hesitate to highly recommend David and his team at Domus Homes to carry out your renovation or new home and look forward to working again with David in the near future.”
