The Brief

Collaborating on numerous successful projects over the years, CORE was engaged by Hilton Residential to deliver end to end structural engineering consultancy services for the redevelopment and extension of a charming 2-acre farm right in the heart of Berry.


6 months – design and construction

Experts in structural engineering – residential

Responsible for the delivery of new building specifications and certifications, external retaining wall works and the design of an external pool and studio, CORE worked closely with the client from design through to construction to see a truly bespoke vision brought to life – resulting in the creation of one of Berry’s finest, luxury farm stays.

The secluded two-storey farmhouse and luxury cottage has 8 boutique bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and accommodates 18 adults in pure comfort and style. Beautifully designed and built with quality details and finishes, the picture-perfect home is filled with character and offers a rare sense of peace and serenity.

“The original house was a red weatherboard with a red tin roof. The layout was very dysfunctional; there was no way to fix it without adding an extension,” said owner Caroline.

“Today, many people walking past the house think that the new extension is actually the old part of the house, and the old two-storey part is new. We love this – it means the house is perfectly balanced.“

With structural engineering a key component of the project, CORE is proud to have contributed our expertise to this extraordinary home and are happy to see another family’s vision brought to life.
