A KENSINGTON GARDENS property has been given not one, but three stunning renovations to transform it into a fantastic family home catering for people of all ages.

Miranda Hodge and her partner David Harford bought their 38 East Terrace home 12 years ago, attracted by its location, its Federation Bungalow style and potential for a transformation.

Drawing on Miranda’s design background, the couple set about transforming the property into a spacious and grand family entertainer, treating it to three separate major renovations.


“The first one was turning a 1950s garage into a self-contained bachelor pad or studio, so our son James lived out there and we put in a whole new laundry and a new bathroom,” Miranda says.

“In the second renovation we went up, and added a whole new level and that became our daughter Lucy’s teenage retreat, and we also made general upgrades.
