The Peppermint Grove Bungalow is an interwar property with Tudor and Spanish mission elements on a generous lot in a riverside location. It has been extensively altered over its life with mixed results, however enough of its charm remained for the owners to want to make it work for their busy young family.

The renovation involved the untangling of the existing living areas through rationalising openings, connecting living spaces to one another and better connecting to the gardens beyond. New finishing to the floors, plus additional elements including screens, mirrors and furnishings create an overarching design language that is sophisticated, comfortable, contemporary and sympathetic to the original.
