Transforming a Classic Toowoomba Home

Blending Traditional Building Materials with a Functional Home Extension

Project Goals

Extending A Classic Family Home on Eton Street

Nestled in the East Toowoomba, a classic colonial style house on Eton Street was due for an extension. Passed on through the family, owner Ashley wanted to personalise the home and make it suited for him and his brothers lifestyle. Originally from Killarney, Qld, Ashley entrusted Mark and the team to balance preserving the existing style of the home while adding a new laundry, bathroom, master bedroom, outdoor entertaining area, and a pool for a few people.

Our client wanted to work with a builder that was known for quality and who could respect character features while incorporating some modern elements to the home.

Project Highlights

Project Summary

An Oasis for Relaxing or Entertaining

This small classic 3 bedroom property has been fully transformed. The project involved expanding the lounge, adding a walk-in laundry, a main bathroom, and a master bedroom with an ensuite. The highlight, however, is the outdoor living area and pool, transforming the space into an oasis for relaxing or entertaining. The team’s meticulous approach is evident in every detail, from the repurposed floorboards from an old Killarney church to the carefully selected modern VJ board, ensuring the extension complements the original structure’s character.

The client described the completed project as a home that feels like his own Oasis. Not only has the extension of this family home improved the comfortability and functionality of the home for owner Ashley, but it has added significant value to the the property – making for a solid investment down the road.

Client Testimonial

It's more than a renovation; it has brought new life into the home me and my brother grew up in.

Choosing Mark and Hughes Elite Builders for our Home Extension in Toowoomba was a decision I don’t regret. His team’s work in expanding our lounge room, adding a new bathroom, master bedroom, and creating an outdoor oasis has transformed a century old house while keeping the character in-tact. The blend of old and new is seamless. It’s more than a renovation; it has brought new life into the home me and my brother grew up in.

The quality of work, respectfulness of the team on-site, and the cleanliness they maintained throughout the project was what I was hoping for. I couldn’t be happier with the finished home!
