One of Newcastle’s finest renovation projects, blending conservation, creativity, and modern sustainable design


Three beautiful frangipani trees herald your arrival at 'Frangipani House,' a stunning c.1918 post Federation era home. A sublime renovation and extension, by the talented team at Zugai Strudwick Architects (ZSA), blends the home's perfectly preserved original period features with contemporary style and functionality utilising passive solar design principles. The result is a light-filled and airy sanctuary where timeless beauty meets modern luxury.

It's easy to imagine enjoying an afternoon cocktail on the front verandah as the sun filters through the trees and your neighbours stop by to say 'Hello!' Inside you will be wowed by the beautiful Ironbark floors, 3.1m high ornate plaster ceilings, leadlight and coloured glass windows, fretwork and tall skirts and architraves. Functionality and versatility are hallmarks of the home. The original section houses three bedrooms, a shower bathroom, lounge room, and eat-in kitchenette with a sliding barn door separating it from the contemporary new extension. This versatility makes it ideal as kids' quarters, separate Airbnb accommodation, or potential professional consulting rooms adding to the appeal.

The rear extension, completed in 2014, features heated polished concrete floors, a soaring raked ceiling, and an abundance of glass and louvres to let in natural light, cross ventilation, and seamless access to the deck and verdant gardens. The Nadin West kitchen and dining area features stone benches, abundant storage, and quality appliances, catering effortlessly to family living or entertaining. Beyond, find a second living area, and fourth bedroom with full-size bathroom all converging to create a sanctuary like retreat for parents.

Inner city Cooks Hill is renowned for its charming period homes and convenient accessibility to shopping, dining and beautiful parkland and beaches. However, it's often associated with smaller block sizes. This expectation is defied at 87 Corlette Street, where you'll be pleasantly surprised by the expansive 686.73sqm landholding. Leveraging this generous plot, the property features impeccably landscaped gardens offering both beauty and privacy, ample off-street parking for multiple vehicles, and a private self-contained studio apartment boasting a Caesarstone finished kitchen, moody black bathroom and robed bedroom all tied together with hybrid flooring and air-conditioning. Elevated above an alfresco entertaining area, home office and oodles of storage, the flat's first floor position, above the lush gardens, will have your guests or tenants feeling like they are living in a treehouse.
