Heritage Listed Residence In Kent Town
This late Victorian style sandstone and redbrick villa in Kent Town is registered as South Australian Heritage. In September 2010, Lancaster Painters Australia performed beautiful heritage repaint and decorative finish work inside the villa. Decorative finishes included European washes to the walls and the hand painting of a faux (fake) marble effect to the columns and arches. We delicately picked out the colours of the heritage ceiling roses and cornices. Finally, we delicately applied 22 karat gold leaf by hand to the decorative features of the fireplace plate, the keystone and the Corinthian column leaves.
In January 2011, Lancaster Painters Australia were called back to perform heritage remedial and reconstruction work to the extensive water damaged areas of the house. It included repaint work to match the existing heritage colour schemes as well as repair and reconstruction work to original decorative finish work we completed in 2010. Works included moisture testing, sensitive cleaning of surfaces, filling, colour matching, repainting of ceilings and cornices, and artistic reconstruction work to the decorative ceiling roses.

In March 2016, we performed further heritage reconstruction work to the main bathroom and the mezzanine area that led into the bathroom. It included colour matching, repainting of walls and woodwork and artistic touch-up work to the column in the mezzanine area that we had previously hand painted in a marble finish. We beautified the bathroom using a high gloss finish for the ceiling, applying a hand painted marble finish to the top and bottom of the cornices with a hand painted silver antiquing finish in-between.
