A modern makeover
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.
