This Windsor home renovation will significantly improve our client’s lifestyle, as well as the home’s value if they decided to move onto another property.
The Windsor home renovation’s position, it’s current layout and amenities versus what is proposed in order to upgrade the home is relatively straightforward, yet will produce a dynamic result which will not only cover the clients outlays but would easily take the home’s value up to the higher end if sold immediately upon completion. If you the client chose to stay in the home for a minimum 10 year period and used good quality fitting the client would definitely make a substantial capital gain on this property.
I recommend locating the main entrance on the southern side of the house and connecting this with a covered path through to the existing stair beside the existing garage. The main entry itself would be built as a separate structure linked back to the house.
A new double garage as requested would be located out from the new living areas. A slab roof would create an additional terrace area. A new internal stair could link this garage to the main living areas and provide some secure storage space.
The kitchen, being the hub of a home should be relocated as shown so it is centrally positioned in an open plan living/dining space which is within a short distance to the indoor/outdoor room.
The indoor /outdoor room would be created from the structure of the existing enclosed verandah and the room adjacent this space. New bi-fold doors would link this new space to the outside. I recommend building up a new terrace directly out from this space so outdoor living could be easily accessed.
I recommend converting the existing kitchen and bathroom space to another bedroom and the existing ensuite to the main bathroom. In the future, the client could add a new ensuite and robe to the main bedroom. I recommend linking one of the existing bedrooms to your existing side verandah to create an extra lodger bedroom with annexe.
With the proposed adjustments to the Windsor home renovation needs, these will have all the features most commonly requested by many people I see over a 12 month period plus the client will always have a commanding position, which will ensure capital growth.

Windsor is about 3.5 km from the Brisbane city centre. As one of Brisbane’s oldest shires, it is full of beautiful old Queenslanders. It is mostly residential, along with commercial and retail facilities. The 1st land was sold around 1854. Therefore Windsor has more then it’s fair share of heritage listed sites including a school, hospital and homes. Windsor may also be home to the smallest block of land at only 73.3m. This block certainly has the smallest house in Windsor, that was originally just a single room with verandahs front and back.
The suburb became popular as it is close to the city (15 min by train) and has many historic houses that are ideal for renovating. This has contributed to a higher demand and a nice price growth for residents. Many locals work at the Royal Brisbane Hospital and the area probably has great public transport because of this. Windsor is the home of the Northey St Organic Markets, held every Sunday. You will also find the many sporting facilities and the Downey Park sporting fields which are considered the home of women’s sport.
