With a bright extension designed by Aughey O’Flaherty Architects as well as gorgeous period details, this home shows how old and new can combine for modern family living. 


Built around 1907, Bradville is situated just minutes from the Cowper Luas stop, Palmerstown Park and the Dodder Park, as well as being opposite the side entrance to Gonzaga College.

As you enter the house, the hallway shows evidence of historical details, such as the stained glass door, coved ceiling and the original wooden staircase. To the side of this space is the Drawing room, with further period features including the original tiles fireplace, a large bay window and a picture rail.

The home’s current owners show how these details can work with more modern furniture, tying them in with the contemporary additions to the house.

To the rear is the modern extension, which includes a kitchen, dining area and living area, which was designed by Aughey O’Flaherty Architects and completed in 2014. While being open plan, the space is well defined by distinct zones, with a long series of folding doors that leads outside to a patio, and a large picture window ensuring plenty of light enters the room.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, one with ensuite, with an additional bedroom on the second floor, all with polished timber floors and large windows. Both the ensuite and main bathroom feel bright and modern, with contemporary fixtures and tiles.
