Renovated cottage up for grabs in Redcliffe
THIS two-bedroom home has been completely renovated and is going under the hammer this weekend.
Owners Krestina and John Tawadrous bought the property at 169 Scarborough Rd, Redcliffe four years ago and set out to completely overhaul the house.
“We wanted something where we could pick the colours, make it our own and give it a touch of luxury,” Mrs Tawadrous said.
“We did everything from ripping out the kitchen to gutting the bathroom.
“We were living there while were renovating and I was heavily pregnant. It was liveable but it was in a bad way.
“We had to rip out the kitchen and we found dead mice behind it.”
The home today is almost unrecognisable from what the couple first bought.
A front porch leads into the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, with a study nook in the living space and a laundry off the kitchen.
The gourmet kitchen has stone benchtops and modern cabinetry, while timber floors feature throughout the living space.
The two bedrooms have built-in robes and the main bathroom has floor to ceiling tiles, double basins and a freestanding bathtub.
Downstairs there is a teenager’s retreat, with bathroom, opening to the back entertaining deck.
“The bathroom is definitely my favourite (room in the home). The bathtub and the colour scheme are amazing,” Mrs Tawadrous said.
She said the home would suit a couple with a teenage child, who could make use of the downstairs retreat, or an older couple who need space for guests.
“The home has a great backyard size-wise and can accommodate people with pets and kids, and people who like to entertain.
“It’s a home with so much potential for anyone to make it their own.”
The property is being marketed by David Huynh and Darren Suhle of Ray White North Lakes.
It will go to auction on Saturday, March 9 at 2.15pm.
