Before & after: Mid-century home overhauled for fabulous ROI

We’ve got another fabulous before and after for you today, courtesy of one of our recent sales. Originally purchased by our client in 2017, for $420,000, the Dianella home was subsequently renovated with a focus on highlighting its lovely mid-century features.

The kitchen, bathroom and laundry were all overhauled and a new garage, with skillion roof, was added to the front of the home. In the building trade, our client did a lot of the work to the home himself and so managed to get away with spending just $80,000 on what you’d agree is an impressive makeover.

The home’s original kitchen is almost unrecognisable in its current state. Though the layout remains the same, the finishes have been brought up to date with blue cupboards and a dated brown tile being replaced with a stylish mix of green and white joinery  as well as an olive-green Kit Kat feature tile laid vertically.

The bathroom went from a dated pink affair to a stylish sage green and white design – oval mirrors, offset tiling (with contrast grout) and hanging greenery only increasing its appeal.

Our client made some clever space planning decisions too including converting the home’s original garage into an additional living space. Located at the side of the property, the extra room made the home far more appealing to families and it also happens to open out onto a second outdoor space.

The property also had extensive landscaping works taken out which greatly added to its overall appeal. And as for the ROI, the house just sold for $718,500 which is a pretty incredible result!
