WHEN Jede and Matt Chad­wick bought their Burleigh Wa­ters home in 2009, it was a brick ve­neer, brown ren­dered house.

That home is al­most un­recog­nis­able now af­ter it was trans­formed through Burleigh Con­struc­tions into a house that has al­most dou­bled in size.

One of the things which re­ally at­tracted the cou­ple to the house was the lo­ca­tion.

“The street is nice and quiet and fam­ily ori­ented, it is close to the school and the beach and the park,’’ Mrs Chad­wick said. “We lived in it for quite a few years and then we did a big ren­o­va­tion nearly two years ago,’’ she said.

The cou­ple had three chil­dren in four years so they needed to ei­ther buy some­thing larger or ren­o­vate - they de­cided to ren­o­vate.

“So we went for a full mod­ern Hamp­tons style ren­o­va­tion, I have got my dream kitchen in there, which I am very sad to leave,’’ Mrs Chad­wick said.

Be­fore the ren­o­va­tion, the home had three bed­rooms and two bath­rooms.

Al­though it was listed as a four-bed­room house, with two me­dia rooms, Mrs Chad­wick said it was legally five bed­rooms, as one of the me­dia rooms was cre­ated as a bed­room.

“A lot of houses you can’t see kids in the pool and things like when you are in the kitchen so I re­ally loved that I could be in my beau­ti­ful kitchen and still see the kids in the pool.’’

There is an adults’ wing and a chil­dren's wing.

The kitchen has stone bench­tops, a gas cook top and a but­ler’s pantry and there are tim­ber floors in the open plan liv­ing and din­ing area and bi-fold doors. 7 MAIT­LAND ST, BURLEIGH WA­TERS 4 3 2 Agent: Troy Fitzgerald and Justin Hunt, Ray White Broad­beach / Broad­beach Wa­ters / Mer­maid Wa­ters Auc­tion: Septem­ber 1, 10am In­spec­tions: Satur­day, 9.30am-10am
