Hindmarsh Island house: Before and After

Take a closer look at the makeover of this dated 6 bedroom home in South Australia.

Located 1.5 hours South of Adelaide near the Murray Mouth, it’s easy to see the appeal of living on Hindmarsh Island. Theresa and Steven Burns purchased the property in 2008. It was built in 2003 but resembled more of a mid 90’s style building. The house included a whopping 6 bedrooms, wide-open living spaces and even a personal jetty!

As the years passed, the house lost touch with its surrounding environment. New builds arose, rife with modern style and glamour, each property striving to outdo the next with modern appeal. Plus our ageing homeowners were finding it too much work to maintain such a large property.

With Theresa also needing frequent trips Adelaide for treatment and to visit the kids and grandkids, the Burns family had to make a big decision about where their futures lie. It was time to move closer to Adelaide and to their family, which meant they had to try and sell their dream house.

Steven and Theresa tried their best to compete on the property market.
Originally listed for $680,000, three years later the property is still on the market and is now accepting offers over $580,000.
