Renovated western Sydney home generates huge buyer interest
It may have only hit the market a couple of weeks ago but a western Sydney home has quickly generated huge buyer interest — and it is easy to see why.
A far cry from the drab property it once was, this three-bedroom pad in Woodpark is ready to move into as all of the hard work has been done.

LUXURY PROPERTY SET TO SHATTER SUBURB’S PRICE RECORD
“The house has undergone a full renovation over the past four years and it is now a stunning family home,” listing agent Matt Carpenter from Starr Partners Merrylands said.
“It is also a high set block and the land size is 645 sqm — a property on more than 600 sqm is quite rare to find in Woodpark,” Mr Carpenter said.
Originally a 1950s build, the house is set in a cul-de-sac. While it spans a single storey and now has a spacious and flowing layout, there is still plenty of room to move outside.
Out the front, a covered timber deck is perfect for enjoying a hot cup of tea or coffee on the weekend.
The rear deck, which branches off the main living space, was made for entertaining.
Fitted with downlights and ready to mount a large television, it has ample sitting space and an unobstructed view of the flat lawn, where the children can run around and play in privacy.
Inside, the kitchen is a highlight. Like something from the pages of a home design magazine, it has dark cabinetry which stand out against timber bench tops, stainless steel appliances and a light wall colour.
It is in an open-plan setting with the dining area, it is close to the large loungeroom.
The main bathroom has floor-to-ceiling tiles and a freestanding tub. At the side of the home, a long driveway leads to a double garage.
Mr Carpenter said while the owners prepare for auction day with plans to move interstate, the spruced up property has been inspected by a mix of buyer types, all eager to snap it up.
“The level of interest has been brilliant — we normally see about five or six inspections a week but this one has had 46 in just over a fortnight.
“There are a number of interested parties from those wanting to upgrade, to downsizers and even first home buyers … it has definitely made an impact on the market because there is not much around at the moment.”
A neighbouring suburb of Guildford and Merrylands West, Woodpark had just 18 sales in the 12 months to April.
