Hawthorn Renovations And Extensions Projects

Hawthorn is an exclusive suburb in Melbourne’s inner east that allows homeowners a nice blend between enjoying the vibrancy of the Melbourne CBD, with the ability to escape the hustle and bustle with your own little piece of suburbia. However, due to the older inner suburban style of housing, it is quite common for families in Hawthorn to outgrow their homes. That’s where Period Extensions & Designs are here to assist.

Whether you need more space for a growing family or wish to renovate your home to fit your lifestyle, our home extension and renovation experts can help you design and build a customised, bespoke space that is perfect for you and your family.

Hawthorn Lifestyle

The suburban lifestyle in Hawthorn makes it one of the most sought after locations in Melbourne to live in. At only 6kms from the Melbourne CBD, it is situated close enough to the heart of the city but just far enough away to offer a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. 

At the heart of Hawthorn is Glenferrie Road, a vibrant street with cheerful cafes, designer fashion boutiques, and modern homeware. It has its own aquatic centre, a cinema, and sports facilities like tennis and bowls clubs. In a nutshell, it offers people the convenience of city living in a uniquely tranquil setting that is hard to compare.

Types Of Homes In Hawthorn

Hawthorn has a diverse mix of real estate with a blend of modern townhouses dotted with old character homes from the Victorian era. Many homeowners have extended their homes to fit their lifestyles or to increase the size of their liveable space. 

If you are one of the lucky people to own a period style home in Hawthorn, a home extension can increase the size of your home while maintaining the character and charm of the original architecture. If this sounds like you, then you should consider the option of extending or renovating your existing house into the home of your dreams, rather than moving away from the area.

Hawthorn Median House Prices

Hawthorn is considered to be an upmarket and expensive suburb to live in with a decent house costing well over $2m. The current median house price in the area is $2.5m so getting into the market from scratch isn’t easy. 

That is why renovating or extending your existing house is a perfect way to achieve the house you have always wanted, while also increasing the value and giving you full access to this exclusive suburb.
