​An old Kimberly house gets a new look

Situated in the affluent suburb of Belgravia, Kimberley’s first exclusive residential suburb, is a late Victorian style home, originally built in 1902. Of course the house’s outdated look was not quite suitable for modern-day times, which is why some alterations, restorations and additions were in order.

Kimberley-based professionals Jonroy Design Studio bring us this homify 360° gem. Let’s take a look…

The front façade

The front façade of ‘House Blanckenberg’, as we can see, displays early 1900s architecture that is typical to the environment, while the interior and eastern façade enforces its position as 21st century alteration. The contemporary intervention embraces its heritage, creating a timeless quality, setting the standards in local heritage conservation.

Looking (at the) back

This is what the house used to look like before the renovation process kicked off. Although cute and charming and presenting potential in terms of space, the homeowners required a more modern look.

The new rear façade

Much better! This renovation definitely involved quite a few changes, including a new colour palette, concrete pillars for the porch and new flooring for the terrace. And just look…

Enhancing the social aspect

… the project also treated the braai space to a stone-clad look, and threw in a pizza oven! And let’s not overlook the new dining space, which really enhances this backyard terrace’s social standing to great new heights.
