A renovation project has transformed a classic suburban three-bedroom bungalow into a spacious and modern luxury home.
The builder who took on the job of overhauling the dated Adelaide, South Australia residence tread a fine line by retaining some original elements while ditching others including an outdated interior.
The home – in its original state as a three-bedroom dwelling – was offered for sale two years ago.
Its new owner has since added two extra bedrooms, an additional two bathrooms and a bespoke creation in the form of a wine rack running the length of one wall.

AFTER: A stunning makeover has seen the property transformed into a thoroughly modern five-bedroom residence
The builder, who bought the property sought to create a family home, albeit one imbued with elements of architectural living.
Reinvigorating the dwelling meant rooms such as the kitchen, dining and lounge, once separate, were combined into a single multifunctional space.
Tired flooring in the form of brown lino was ripped up, ceilings were lifted to five metres and gib removed to reveal a stunning red brick wall.

Blonde wood parquetry, elevated ceilings and a red brick feature wall have made this living area a stunning space to cook, eat and relax
The kitchen, lounge and dining areas now grouped in this part of the home feel spacious and light-filled, thanks so some clever design work.
The focus rests on a view from a manicured rear section, one the eye is drawn to thanks to rear-facing floor-to-ceiling windows and bi-folding doors.
Elements such as a marble-topped kitchen island, pendant lighting and fashionable black appliances lend a modern and understated touch.
