A beautiful terrace home in the inner city suburbs of Sydney was in desperate need of a renovation and transformation to bring it into the modern day. The fittings, fixtures and layout were all outdated and it needed some clever crafting to get it just right.
Original period mouldings, ornate skirting boards, picture rail, decorated ceiling and timber flooring cement an obvious connection with an era gone by, while the new elements of the home such as colour choices, updated lighting, polished concrete and cleaner lines modernise the space.
Mother Daughter design team, Carla Barton and Noela Coffey, better known as the ‘Mother Flippers’ embarked on this mammoth renovation task. The team at realestate.com.au captured their renovation from purchase to the end to give budding renovators and house flippers tips and tricks from the professionals while on their own reno journey.
The series showed that no matter how experienced you are, there can always be challenges. Luckily, the result was a magnificent renovation that was respectful to the homes heritage while incorporating a refined contemporary aesthetic and thoughtfully planning living flow, which also then converted to dollars!
