Five-bed house worth £1.9m unrecognisable after dramatic transformation

A five-bedroom property has stunned buyers after returning to the market with a new look.

The property, which is located in Australia, originally sold for $1.8 million, approximately £990,000 last year, but now after a dramatic transformation it’s up for auction again.

Previously, the 1895 three-bed bungalow had a dull, concrete exterior.

But now the modern architectural masterpiece looks like it belongs on an episode of Grand Designs.

The front of the property is decorated with wood panelling, smooth stone detailing and a white accent wall with warm spotlights which give it a contemporary feel.

There is also dual access, and a double garage.

As you enter the property, the first room you walk into is the cozy living room.

The magnolia walls and wooden floor has been swapped out for a white and grey colour scheme.

And the mismatched furniture has been given a modern upgrade.

Despite the dramatic transformation, you can still see some of the original features, like the fireplace.

But the kitchen, which backs onto the living room, is most definitely the focal point of the property.

Before, it was decorated with wood cabinets and plain grey worktops.

But now it has luxurious fittings, a centre island and panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows.

There is also a second living area, which could double as a larger dining room if you replace the additional sofa with an ornate table – making it the perfect place to entertain guests.

Downstairs there is also a bathroom, two bedrooms and a butler’s pantry.

The master bedroom, which is most probably the size of a studio flat, features a private balcony, ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe.

And there is also an additional two bedrooms, and study on the upper floor.

Outside there is a swimming pool, small grass area and double garage, which doubles as a rooftop garden.

Realestate.com.au said according to Inner West Council development records, local builder Robert Kharzoo is behind the work.

The property is due to go under the hammer in a virtual auction with a guide price of $3.5 million, approximately £1.9 million.

CoreLogic, property data provider, also revealed that a sale around this price would see this house claim the spot of the second highest price paid for a property in this area, behind a woman who’s renovated warehouse comes in at $6 million, about £3.3 million.
