Once we started renovating, we realised it was easier just to practically demolish the whole back of it, we were just going to keep this, keep that, keep the roof, but we ended up virtually keeping none of it except for the library and a front feature brick wall, which I went to great pains to retain.’’Ms Barnhill said she went to great trouble to have the front gate, front door and the door to a wine room made in steel, glass and brass and those accents picked up the home’s glazed brick.“And the library is just a beautiful, warm, lovely room, it has still got that sixties feel,’’ she said.The home is on a large 1867sq m block. The renovation is in a California Modernist style. 227 Dewar St, CorindaIt was the library that Lee-Anne Barnhill fell in love with when she bought her home at 227 Dewar Tce, Corinda, 10 years ago.Her plans then were to renovate the property and turn it into a large family home, but it was something they put off and have just recently done.The result is an almost complete rebuild of the home and a decision that, as their children have now grown up, they would sell it instead. 227 Dewar St, CorindaThe floor plan is split level and is built around central living areas. A number of the rooms open to the outdoor spaces.The outdoor area has a fireplace, barbecue area and a wine fridge.This area has river views and a terraced garden area and swimming pool. There is also a boat pontoon. 227 Dewar St, Corinda“The kids grew up and a family home as such wasn’t required at all,’’ Ms Barnhill said. “It really presents as a brand new home.“Honestly, I bought the house because I fell in love with the sixties retro, funky look. It was dark brown, glazed brick which everyone poo-pooed in those days, but now of course everyone wants it because it is so fashionable. “I loved the joinery and just the feel of it and the library. 227 Dewar St, CorindaThe kitchen has Bianco Venato benchtops with three ovens, two dishwashers, and a separate butlers scullery with foldback windows.There is pure wool carpet in the main bedroom and a walk-in robe. The ensuite has Elba Stone marble, a freestanding bathtub and double shower.There are six bedrooms and four bathrooms throughout the house.Ms Barnhill said the house was close to public transport and within walking distance to some of the best known private schools in the area, and would suit a large family.
