Located in the centrally-placed suburb of Richmond, the house is within a Neighbourhood Residential Zone and covered by a local heritage overlay.

Flanked by houses with strong character, this house is part of a line-up of single-storey heritage cottages, with red-tiled roofs and weatherboard walls.

With lovely footpaths and leafy-green trees, the street is part of a quaint network of streets and lanes that help create a private yet familiar character for Wedge House.

The house is to be tastefully renovated and extended on ground level with additional living and entertaining areas. Upstairs, spacious bedrooms, modernly-outfitted bathrooms and a quiet retreat will serve to create a whole new floor for family living.

Downstairs, the house extends towards the south, taking advantage of the site’s elongated yet elegant proportions. In response to both the heritage sightlines and regulatory setbacks, the massing of the house extension on the first floor provides a remarkable and contemporary form.
