Renovated cottage by nuclei lifestyle design country | homify


was contacted early 2006 by the new owner of one of the few remaining large old properties in Irene Estate—Pretoria, to assist in the design and renovation of this beautiful yet seriously dilapidated old house.

Our client bought the property with its large grounds (3600m²) and gardens, as well as several other out buildings, solely to ensure it is not cut into small pieces, or worse, demolished and replaced by town houses, as is the fate of so many of other similar properties in this sought after estate. Our brief was to restore the building to its former glory, while at the same time bringing it into the 21st Century with regard to amenities and services.
