G. Beavans Bowral renovations

A historic Bowral building been undergoing renovations to enhance its beauty.

The G. Beavan Funerals has been around since 1883, and the building has needed some love to keep it functioning.

Manager Josh Peszko said the family-owned business’ base needed modernising and some features needed fixing.

“We wanted to put some love back into the facade,” he said.

“The roof was leaking, so it has been replaced, there has been electrical work done in the house, we’ve redone the carpark, the chapel and garage received new roofs, and the chapel’s technology has been updated.”

Mr Peszko said the building’s history was kept in mind during renovations.

“It’s a beautiful Bowral house and people love it,” he said.

Assistant manager Wendy Graham said furnishings had also been chosen to keep with the building’s historical feel.

“This was a functioning home, where you can sit down and we’ll do what we can for you,” she said.

The next stage of the renovations will be the sunroom and back rooms of the building.

The G. Beavan Funerals office in Camden has also reopened.
