Brighton Cottage


Multi award-winning modern Brighton home.

Anthony and Jessica Karlovic, the husband-and-wife team behind First Avenue, proudly
present the award-winning renovation and extension works on a project they designed, built, specified all interiors finishes for and completed to a meticulous standard to deliver a premium property to Melbourne’s booming Bayside real estate market.
The humble cream and green 1930s cottage they affectionately named “Lincoln” after their eldest child, was transformed into a chic modern home that pays tribute to its carefully restored facade and front rooms while hiding Brighton’s best kept interiors secrets in its grand rear extension, which features a striking black kitchen, soaring ceilings, brass accents, a 7m pool, fully landscaped gardens, outdoor kitchen and a self-contained pool-house/rear studio.
Winner of the 2021 HIA Victorian New Kitchen of the Year Award, 2021 HIA Victorian New Bathroom of the Year Award and Finalist in the 2021 HIA Victorian Spec Home of the Year Award.
