Hocking Stuart Albert Park director David Wood said the renovation was done about four years ago.
“It was in a very unrenovated state, it has had a beautiful renovation,” Mr Wood said.
He said there was a lot of interest in renovated properties, especially in Albert Park.
“People haven’t got the time or expertise to do their own renovation,” he said.
The original home had two bedrooms off a traditional side hallway and a living room, kitchen and bathroom at the rear of the house.
That side hallway now leads past the main bedroom suite, with custom-designed walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, plus the laundry and powder room, to the open-plan kitchen, meals area and lounge room.
Here marble adorns the benchtops and splashback in the kitchen, which also has a full suite of Miele appliances including a bar fridge in the island bench.
The living space has ample built-in cabinetry, including a hidden study nook.
A large pivot door links the living zone to the deck outside, which has a sun awning with remote control.
An extra level has also been added with two additional bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.
Other features include messmate timber and basalt floors, premium Tretford carpet, ducted airconditioning and bespoke joinery.
