On another note, I have watched a home undergo a huge renovation since it was sold a couple of years ago. It was my pick at the time for a property with potential. My friend (with a builder husband so therefore an expert) scoffed and said it wouldn't have views due to trees and that it was limited with what you could do on the difficult site. I disagreed (I knew the trees were ones you'd be allowed to remove) and thought it had huge potential.
Well, today I noticed it's for sale. I'd say it's reached a pleasing outcome (to say the least). Here is a sneak peek of what you can enjoy living in, in my neck of 'The Shire'.
She was right...no views
Leave modesty at the bathroom door...
My type of house. My kids only question was 'where's the pool'. It hasn't one, but with 920sqm block, and a bit of cash to splash...
I haven't shopped again. Still thinking/looking/deciding. Mustn't rush these things!
