Working in conjunction with local council, the Heritage Council, and other heritage advisors the project to restore the Federation Queen Anne style home was many years in completion. Originally built over 120 years ago on a large parcel of landing overlooking the Indian Ocean the home was in considerable disrepair when work began. Wherever possible repairs were made to the original materials such as limestone walls, ceilings and ceiling roses.
For the new areas of the home that were extended to incorporate an additional living area, replicas were made and sourced so as to match the original detail of the home. From the marble flooring to custom-made period style cabinetry and the ornate ceilings, Le Fanu is once again a beautiful landmark home that will enhance the WA coastline for another 120 years.
