We want to modernise the front of our house. Thinking of changing the balustrade to glass or wood and
rendering or cladding (maybe both) Any ideas appreciated.
You will need to do much more than change the balustrade. The dominant features are the arches, not the balustrade. Trying to modernise an older home like this always end up looking a bit try-hard, unless you spend lots of money and address all of the features that are looking dated. I would consider just giving everything a high pressure wash and live with it before spending big dollars.
Best of luck,

I’m not a fan of arches so I’d remove those and add some timberBy cladding the residual columns and running a beam across the openings. But first remove palms and enlarge garden beds.
