A mod­ern makeover

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Front Page -

ASEAFORD Rise ven­dor wishes she could put her house on a trailer and take it closer to her work­place. ‘‘If I could lift the prop­erty closer to the city, I would,’’ the ven­dor of the ren­o­vated four-bed­room home says. ‘‘I now need to be closer to the city be­cause I work longer hours in a new job.’’

The ven­dor says the prop­erty was gut­ted to turn it into a mod­ern home be­cause ‘‘it hadn’t been touched since it was built about 15 years ago’’.

‘‘The house was pretty dis­mal when we bought it but we saw huge po­ten­tial in not just the house but also the land it was on,’’ she says. ‘‘We re­did the bath­rooms, the kitchen, the bed­rooms, floors, the heat­ing . . . it’s ready to move in.’’

The ven­dor says the home is on an es­tate but doesn’t feel like it.

‘‘We’ve re­ally liked the fact you can hear birds and our es­tate has nice streets, not like some other es­tates,’’ she says.

‘‘The area is re­ally nice and it’s family-friendly. It’s got ac­cess to good schools and the Noar­lunga hos­pi­tal, which is be­ing up­graded.’’

The home has an open-plan kitchen with Cae­sars­tone bench tops and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances. The mas­ter bed­room with a walk-in robe and en­suite is at the front of the home, op­po­site the for­mal lounge, or par­ents’ re­treat.

There is re­verse-cy­cle air-con­di­tion­ing, gas heat­ing, low-main­te­nance gar­dens with a gar­den shed and a lock-up car­port.

‘‘We’ve had some re­ally pos­i­tive feed­back about the qual­ity of the fin­ish­ings we’ve cho­sen,’’ the ven­dor says.
