A spacious townhouse just moments from the beach, the biggest test with this property was to reach a balance between the location and its interior design. The newly painted walls and four bedrooms posed an exciting opportunity. Alas, hanging artwork was not an option but the floor plan beckoned discovery. We noticed the unused space at the top of the stairs but one bedroom in particular peaked our interest as it contained an entrance to the backyard. The potential to become something more than a bedroom was apparent. The transformation? We turned the room into an additional living space and styled the interior with plush coloured pillows and captivating flower arrangements. The top of the staircase also invited a change. No longer a simple thoroughfare, the area was reconfigured into a cosy study. To complete the makeover, we added lush indoor plants and carefully engineered the artwork to lean decoratively on the walls. Multiple bids came in prior to auction day and the property sold prior to auction for more than $80 000 over its asking price.
