Got a Heritage-Listed property? You need to read this

Owning a heritage-listed property is a wonderful thing.

Your property is a piece of history – representing a time gone by.

That often means that it is also in need of a little TLC. 

 

One of the biggest frustrations for heritage property owners are the limitations put on improving the property.

In order to preserve the heritage and traditional ‘look’, councils often impose restrictions on what you can change about a Heritage Property.

This can mean even adding a storage shed without development and heritage approvals is out of question.

 

There’s good news, however. 

NSW Legislation at the time this article was published allows for erection of a garbage bin storage enclosure on both heritage and non-heritage properties so long as you meet certain criteria. This means that you can put a garbage bin storage enclosure on your property, go as close as 450mm to the boundary and there is also no size limit or height limit specified! 

See the following link for current guidelines: https://www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/#/view/EPI/2008/572/part2/div1/subdiv21a

 

Styles of Garden Rooms that suit Heritage Properties

If you are needing something other than a garbage bin enclosure and need a Garden Room design considered to be sympathetic with a heritage property, we recommend our Verandah or Porch Designs.

Both designs feature a traditional pitched roof, and can be customised with classic options such as cedar cladding and cedar windows. 

The Melwood Verandah Design is a great addition to traditional properties.
