Classic dialogue, fresh voice: Victorian Weatherboard

The Victorian Weatherboard

The canvas for this Victorian-era classic home? Plush green grass. Wide open space. And unobstructed sunshine. For this project, our clients had created an exceptionally detailed brief. And the joy for us? Was working with them to bring every little detail to life.

From land to lifestyle

From the gracious wrap-around veranda to the decorative finials adorning the gabled roofline, the construction of this single-level, 270-sq/m home called for craftspeople backed by experience. Custom-design that spoke to our clients’ uniqueness. And meticulous attention to detail.

Using Hardie Scyon for external cladding, we created a classic traditional weatherboard look for this forever home. Its charming yesteryear aesthetic complemented by Colorbond roofing, awnings, painted verandah posts, and elegant fretwork.

Stepping onto the front porch, you’ll be greeted by custom-made leadlight windows framing the entryway. Warm, charming, welcoming.

As you step inside, your eye will immediately gravitate toward the ornate period-style archway, decorated with detailed moulding, and leading you into a light-filled open-plan living space.

Timber flooring flows through the home, with 3.3-metre, rose-adorned ceilings and custom-cornices guiding the boundaries.

The details

  • A butler’s pantry hidden away in the feature joinery.
  • Heritage door hardware decorates the kitchen.
  • Custom-made doors, intricately designed architraves, and carved mantelpieces.

Words from our client

“From our first meeting with Aaron Martin Construction we immediately felt at ease that we could trust them to produce a high quality build.

Throughout the process, they were committed to helping us achieve our vision of a Victorian-style weatherboard home. No question was too much trouble for them, in fact, questions were welcomed to ensure we achieved the final result we had in mind. As a builder, they were very flexible during all stages of the build and were willing to make changes along the way. This was pivotal for this type of construction, as the style of home has so many details that we hadn’t originally considered when starting this journey.

During the planning and construction phases, both Susie and Aaron were very professional and committed to delivering a high level of quality in every feature of the home. In regards to the cost of construction, we found their pricing to be very reasonable and fair and AMC did their best to work to our budget.

Aaron Martin Construction are an exceptional builder and have exceeded our expectations, in both the quality of the house construction and the personalised service they offered throughout our build. What a pleasure it has been working with these guys. We LOVE our new home! They’ve built not only a house but a beautiful home for us, and we’ll be forever grateful to them for that. We’ve no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants to build their dream home.”
