Queenslander Renovation - Barchester St, Sherwood


Craig Rynne Constructions specialise in bringing life back into classic and character-protected homes. “Foxrowan” on Barchester st, Sherwood is a stunning example of a character home that has been lovingly renovated by an experienced builder.


Originally built in 1925 by the Fox family, the house was purchased in 2008 by Josie and Rowan Kendall; bringing the name ‘Foxrowan’ to life.

This stunning renovation was designed by Keith Hollier Architect Pty Ltd with the intention of incorporating the stunning original home into the design, but also to compliment the surrounding houses in the street and suburb.


The home has a luxurious amount of space both inside and outside. Verandahs have been built into the front and back of the house, allowing the garage to be recessed at the front of the house. Externally, the home has maintained most of the original details. Inside, the home has a fresh, bright look with key features such as door breezeways, decorative arching, and ornate internal stairs incorporated.


The home has an open and luxurious feel, however, upon closer inspection you will find that the home has been cleverly designed to include a highly functional design.

On the lower floor there is a guest bedroom and home office. Both of which have been deliberately situated apart from the rest of the home with separate access for privacy.


The home features several beautiful finishes that contribute of the overall aesthetic of the home. A brief overview includes:

  • Craftwood VJ walls and ceilings

  • Hoop Pine clear finished floors

  • Internal stairs are made of Kwila

  • Decorative Cornices

  • Ducted internal air-conditioning

  • Clear finished spotted gum floors on the verandah

  • Weatherboard used on external walls

  • Colonial skirting and architraves

  • Marble benchtops

  • Colourback glass splashbacks

  • Routed drawers and doors finished in two-pack gloss

  • Frameless glass shower screens

  • Wrought iron balusters & ladies waist timber handrail
