From a single frontage comes huge growth opportunities
Single fronted cottages have been a prevalent architectural style for Melbourne residential areas for decades. They are low rise, easy to maintain, and present untold growth opportunities for families looking to remain at the same property as they grow.
Single frontage design is usually limited to the Edwardian and Victorian architectural eras. They are typically located in the inner suburbs when land subdivisions, in areas like Fitzroy, Carlton and North Melbourne, were more contained and constructed as workers cottages.

We work with single fronted homeowners to redesign and overhaul homes to give the family more space to grow and prosper.

Key features of single fronted home renovations
When it comes to identifying and renovating features of single fronted homes, there's plenty to choose from.
Depending on the architectural style of the single fronted home, the frontage may be weatherboard, local red brick, or coloured rendered brick.
Single fronted homes take hallmarks from many periods of design. Keep an eye out for classic casement windows, Flemish glass, and stylish cornices.
Nothing speaks to Australian living quite like summer rain on a tin roof. Many single fronted homes may also have small verandas or front courtyards.
