HOOKED ON CLASSICS
It’s possible to pick the age of a building based on its design, so in the interests of longevity keep it simple.
“Don’t add anything that’s period related, like colonial or Federation extras, because fashions like that come and go,” says Clarendon Homes’ group design manager, Lester Chambers. Just keep it simple. “You don’t have to go crazy and throw everything at it,” Lester says. “When it comes to the finished product, look at the house in its entirety — including landscaping.”
