Commendation Excellence in Use of Masonry

This a solid brick, 120 year-old heritage-listed grand residence encapsulates the prestige with which the work of master masons has been undertaken for centuries. The project saw the existing red face brickwork painstakingly repointed, to recapture the appearance of a by-gone era. The reclaimed brick work, masonry mouldings, fret-work and guttering details sees the line between ‘then and now’ blurred, and ensures this magnificent residence will be around for at least another 120 years.
