Bell House – 1850s Fitzroy Bluestone Cottage Renovation

Bell House - 1850s Fitzroy Bluestone Cottage Renovation (1)

Bell House is an 1850’s home with a 1970’s addition. A complex, rambling house provided an interesting narrative on which to build. Robert Nichol & sons contribution gives a new address to the home, a new front door, a new master suite and a new heart. Its sculptural form respects the heritage nature of Fitzroy, and the neighbours, whilst proudly standing on its corner allotment.
