The construction and materials companies of a city know their real estate styling well; it’s their job to know. So with the trend being emphasizing modern amenities paired with hardwood floors in Sydney, companies there know what to put focus on.
So when something pops up that goes against the trend, it’s bound to get attention, as was the case with a recently renovated property on the Gold Coast, which was bought at a blindingly fast pace, acquired a mere 10 days after its initial listing.
The three-bedroom property, located at 103 Turpin Rd., Labrador, was built back in the in 1950s, and went up for sale early in April of 2018, being listed for less than two weeks before being bought for a price of $772,000. According to the listing, the beautifully presented Gold Coast home had recently undergone heavy renovation.
Further details on the work done to the house, as per according to the listing, involved completely gutting the original structure of the house, then adding an specifically designed extension. The result, the listing says, is a property that’s quite unique to the Chirn Park area; one that can only be appreciated once one sees it.
The house featured hardwood flooring, newly refurbished windows, kitchen and bathroom. The vendor who sold the 1134m2 property, acquired it back in 2015, then divided it into two blocks. The front block, clocking in at 500m2, was the one with the house, and was retained, renovated, and, eventually, sold. The second block at the rear currently remains vacant.
Ash Breen, from LambettWillcox Estate Agents was the one in charge of marketing the property, saying that it was a record sale; a bargain price for a three-bedroom home in the region. He adds that over 70 groups went through the property to survey it, and it was eventually under contract in a mere 10 days.
Breen describes the property as something uncommon on the Gold Coast, as the styling of the house was akin to the use of hardwood floors in Sydney, in the inner west region, and, infrequently, in Melbourne. He says that this unusual aesthetic, for the region, anyway, is why it was appealing to buyers.
