A 1920s cottage located in Prospect, South Australia has undergone a series of dramatic renovations transforming it from a dated residence into a modern home.
The three-bedroom home, which was sold in November, 2018, for $525,000, has been overhauled in just three short months.
The extensive renovation was the work of professionals, who take on just one or two projects like this every year.
Currently, the lavish property is on the market with an asking price of $780,000 – $840,000. So how did they do it?
Dated red brick cladding (brick exterior) has been dispensed with along with unsightly fencing which gave this property a boxed in look and feel (left). Instead, the 1920s cottage has been renovated to highlight its old world charm while embracing modern elements (right)
The update breathed fresh life into bland interiors, such as this living room, by removing tired carpeting and wood-panelled feature walls (pictured)
Part of the renovation saw new flooring added in the form of stained polished floorboards which were offset brilliantly against crisp white walls and ceilings
A kitchen, which once featured a green tiled spashback set against acres of wooden cupboards, is barely recognisable following its makeover
Post renovation, this once-dated area is now lined with white gloss cupboards, an island bench, a freestanding gas/electric cooker, and a stainless steel dishwasher
Open plan living and dining areas couldn’t feel more spacious thanks to an abundance of natural light
A bedroom that was once swamped in lace curtains, an obtrusive cupboard, and dull carpeting barely resembles its former self after the designers have done their work
Rather than try to hide this beautiful wrought-iron fireplace, the renovators have chosen to make it a feature, one that works wonderfully well with plush carpets and floor-length drapes
Large mirrored built in wardrobes, and unique porthole windows, are features of home’s other bedrooms
An ensuite, connected to the master bedroom, has added touches of luxury, courtesy of stone-top benches and a floor-to-ceiling blue herringbone patterned tiling
The main bathroom is finished to match the ensuite, however, this room features a separate bath and glass panel shower
The all-important indoor-outdoor flow is created using double bi-fold doors which open out on to a pretty paved courtyard
Manicured lawns and neat hedging lends a touch of old world charm to a garden that was previously covered in concrete slabs
