A unique home renovation in the heart of Grays Point, Sydney.

MATTBUILD are experts at home renovations. This lovely existing home in Grays Point provided us with an opportunity to create something truly unique. Based in the south of Sydney, the home is positioned with direct water views over North west arm.

From the beginning of this home renovation, we knew that the design had to be creative to effectively capture the serenity this location has to offer. Partnerships are very important to us at MATTBUILD and this job was no exception. By working closely with the home owners, we were able to create and deliver a tailored building solution that embraces the surrounding atmosphere.


A Little about the Home Extension –

At MATTBUILD we love delivering clients their dream home!

We find that the best way to do this is by working closely with home owners. Through these close partnerships we are able to outline a very clear brief and really focus on delivering exactly what our clients imagine.

For this home renovation, our clients were looking to extend the front of the house by adding a study/bedroom and extending off the rear creating a large walk in robe and ensuite. These additions along with a spacious 55m2 tiled balcony above a 50m2 timber deck provided them with the indoor/outdoor living space they were after.

Not all home renovations are as easy as you may think! As this block has a strong decline to the water off Port Hacking, it required some creative thinking and delicate handling of materials. No matter how difficult the location, MATTBUILD are always meticulous with our handling of materials. The first step of the home renovation begun once we had our level platform for the lower deck. Next came the rear extension. The upper balcony was constructed with the travertine tiles, giving a great finish on the balcony which acted as the rear extension roof. By doing this we were successful in creating the ultimate entertaining and relaxation area with exceptional water views.

Attention to detail is crucial to Home Renovation Success – 

At MATTBUILD, before we begin a home renovation we carefully evaluate all existing home materials. This allows us to plan what materials will complement the design of any additional extensions that our clients may require.

For this south Sydney home we utilised the brilliant existing blonde brickwork and then added new cement rendered sections to tie in with the polystyrene foamed front extension. On the lower ground floor, we used Scyon cladding in the AXON sheet profile. This works wonders with the Blackbutt decking boards flowing across the back of the house. Above on the main floor balcony, the travertine tiles and glass balustrade give a first class finish for a first class view.

  • Extra large shower area with a full width wall to wall window in the shower with views to the water
  • Glass balustrades to both balcony and deck areas
