Mosman Park Home Improvement Transformation: From Dated to Desirable (Case Study)
February 9, 2024
Nestled in the sought-after Mosman Park, our client approached us with a vision: revitalise their property without a complete rebuild. Their goal? Maximise value while creating a comfortable and welcoming haven for future tenants. The current rental shortage and desirable location meant the property would rent as-is, but strategic upgrades could elevate its appeal, minimise future maintenance, and command a higher rent.
Embracing the Outdoors
The cornerstone of the transformation was the addition of front and rear decking, offering seamless indoor-outdoor flow and creating spaces for relaxation and play. The wrap-around design enhances aesthetics, welcomes visitors, and connects seamlessly to the front door.
Opening Up the Space
To foster a sense of spaciousness, we widened key doorways throughout the house. This simple change dramatically improved the flow and created a more airy feel. Additionally, new doors were installed, ensuring every element aligned with the refreshed vision.
Curb Appeal and Functionality
The eaves underwent a meticulous restoration, including repairs, replacements, and a fresh coat of paint, presenting the property at its best. A comprehensive landscaping overhaul transformed the exterior with manicured garden beds, a lush lawn, and strategically planted trees for shade and privacy. The previously uneven dirt driveway was upgraded to a paved, concrete entrance for a polished welcome.
Modernisation and Sustainability
The entire house received a lighting upgrade with energy-efficient LED downlights and oyster lights, promoting sustainability and reducing energy costs. External wall-mounted lighting added security and aesthetics.
The Heart of the Home
The kitchen underwent a significant facelift, featuring new cabinets, a redesigned layout, stone countertops, a breakfast bar for casual dining, modern appliances, and a widened doorway seamlessly connecting it to the front deck.
Gone were the outdated blue tiles and bulky tub that transported you to a different era. We transformed the space into a modern sanctuary. Imagine sleek, neutral tiles creating a calming atmosphere. A floating vanity maximises space while adding a touch of elegance. Walk-in showers with glass enclosures offer a contemporary feel and accessibility. Modern fixtures gleam, mirrors and lighting brighten the room. This bathroom exudes tranquility and functionality, ready for modern living.
Layout changes and doorway modifications were implemented to enhance the property’s overall functionality and flow. Additionally, the fireplace was upgraded to an electric flame effect fire for ambiance and safety. French doors, zebra blinds, and added gates and fencing improved privacy, security, and safety for residents.
The Finishing Touches
The beautiful jarrah flooring was sanded and polished to reveal its natural beauty. Carpeted areas were stripped, showcasing the stunning wood beneath. Finally, a thorough cleaning process ensured the property sparkled, from removing debris to pressure washing exteriors.
Results that Speak Volumes
This renovation wasn’t just about aesthetics; it was about strategic improvements that delivered tangible results. The property leased quickly at a higher rent thanks to its enhanced appeal and functionality. The client was delighted with the transformation, and we are proud to showcase it as a testament to the power of strategic home improvements.
