From modest beginnings to enduring opportunity
Brick veneer homes in Melbourne were first designed and built in the 1960s in suburbs outside of the inner ring. They have retained their mantle as a popular option for first home buyers due to their budget, and standardised construction.
With standardisation comes opportunity. Many of Melbourne’s brick veneer homes exist on larger allotments of land, giving owners plenty of scope for additions, extensions, and renovations. Families can add plenty of style and space to the original home as time goes on.
Supa Group works with families and homeowners to design, develop, and implement extensions to brick veneer homes in Melbourne. Our design consultants are on call to help you realise your renovation dreams.
Key features of brick veneer renovations
Brick veneer homes are simple by design. However, this does not mean that they are without charm.
Aside from the cream or red brick facade, you can usually identify modern brick veneer homes by their single, double, or triple frontage.
Stock (but superb) standards
Your brick veneer home will likely feature a range of standard inclusions, including metal-framed windows, tiled roofs, and timber flooring.
Unlike other home styles, there will be plenty of spare space around your brick veneer. This gives the opportunity to move the frontage, or extend out the back. Their simple roof lines often mean a double storey extension is a great option.
