Melbourne - Wendy & Makira Property Factsheet

Wendy and Makira Wells

SEARCH LOCATION: Inner City Melbourne

BUDGET- $1.050 million

THE BRIEF: Wendy and Makira are looking for a 2 or 3 bedroom house or warehouse conversion with a study that Wendy can use as her home office.  Preferable the study would be separate to the bedrooms and close to the front of the house.  It’s also important that the 2 bedrooms are generous in size and both have their own bathroom – ideally they’d be on separate floors.  Open plan kitchen/living/dining is a must and a roof garden or terrace would be terrific.  As they have a big dog and 2 cats Wendy would also like a generous courtyard or small backyard.  Dealbreaker is the body corporates not allowing pets.  Must be in an area with direct public transport links to Makira’s school.
