Meet Laura and Marcus!

Search Location: Altona North, Melbourne ,VIC
Budget: $500K

The Brief: Marcus and Laura are renting at the moment after selling their house and are keen to get into a 10-15 year family home. They have good local connections in the Altona area so want to stay there, they also know their jobs aren't high paying and feel as though Altona is affordable and still close enough to their work. They’d love a family sized home with two or three bedrooms and some yard space for their son, Archie, to play in but crucially they also need a garage for Marcus' "project car" the 1971 Valliant. They love older-style post-war houses.
