Leongatha, VIC House - Before + After

Take a closer look at the amazing Leongatha, Vic house makeover completed by Shaynna, Charlie and Andrew.

Kate and Mark met when they were both 17 years old and were attending two different high schools in Leongatha. They dated for 6 years before getting married and starting their family. They have two girls, Ayla who is 8 years old and Talia who is 6. Mark coaches the local AFL football team and Kate coaches the affiliated local netball team. Mark works at the local sporting store in the main street and Kate teaches at Leongatha Secondary College. They are both heavily involved in community activities and both call themselves “sports nuts”.

Kate and Mark originally built a house that they decided to sell it, because it was slightly out of their budget. They purchased 35 Brumley street 5 years ago and thought that they would be able to live in it for a few years and then sell it and get something bigger afterwards. Although they were happy paying a smaller mortgage living there, they have now outgrown the house. They want a property that has more space so the two girls can have to freedom to run around and yell and scream and do what kids do.





Summary of works – Interior

This quaint home is in dire need of a facelift. The layout is quite good so all that’s needed is a punch of colour and a sprinkle of style. Shaynna has gone for a bold colour scheme in the back of the house to compliment Charlie’s exterior.

And by leaving the dark timber trims on the inside, it not only echo’s the dark trims on the outside but is a nice and simple feature to bring in warmth. The Bathroom and Kitchen have benefitted from a re-spay and the laminate floor stretching from the kitchen to the family room is both modern and practical for a home like this.

Summary of works – Exterior
This weatherboard in Leongatha was competing with some much prettier homes in the area and the drab exterior wasn’t helping. Charlie’s changed all that with a marvellous exterior paint job. There was also, some tidying and planting out the front as well.

Smart paving leading to the newly painted front door makes the perfect entrance to the inside of this property. Hedging in the back garden will provide some privacy and garden furniture always gives an outdoor space that finished feel.
