VER­SA­TILE MAKEOVER

Southern Gazette (Belmont) - - RESIDENTIAL -

bought the home in 2004 as an in­vest­ment and have rented it out, used it as a week­ender and their son lived at the ad­dress while at­tend­ing univer­sity.

“This year, we have done a full ren­o­va­tion in­clud­ing adding a new kitchen, bath­room, laun­dry, en­suite, floor cov­er­ings, light fit­tings, plumb­ing fixtures and plan­ta­tion shut­ters,” they said.

“Out­side, we re­moved the ex­ist­ing court­yard and built a front en­trance on to the house, and re­moved the ex­ist­ing back ve­randa and built a new large pa­tio with bi­fold doors and kitchen servery with bi­fold win­dow.

“As reg­is­tered builders, we have been ren­o­vat­ing homes for the past 20 years.”

The fit­tings com­bine lux­ury with in­dus­trial, such as ex­posed metal beams, fea­ture lights, engi­neered wood-look floor­ing and lush car­pet.

The stun­ning white kitchen will please any home chef, with spa­cious break­fast bar, stone bench­tops, full com­ple­ment of Euro­pean ap­pli­ances, soft-clos­ing cab­i­netry and servery.

With a pri­vate bal­cony and en­suite, the mas­ter bed­room of­fers the per­fect re­treat, while the two mi­nor be­d­rooms have ac­cess to the fam­ily bath­room with lux­ury shower and stylish wood and metal cab­i­netry.

“We have been able to lock and leave the prop­erty, as it’s only a small group of neigh­bours who are very con­sid­er­ate of each other,” the Al­lens said.

“You are two blocks walk to the Pre­ston Street shops, with IGA, restau­rants, cafes and Cygnet Cin­e­mas and our son has been able to ride to uni.”
