Love It Or List It Australia

Love It Or List It Australia reno recap: Frewville, SA

We take a look at the latest episode of Love It Or List It Australia with Andrew Winter and Neale Whitaker.

Lyndi and Les have lived in their Frewville home in South Australia for 14 years. With a lot of sentimental value packed into this home, Lyndi is not keen to move. Lyndi thinks Neale will be able to give them what they need: an ensuite, walk-in-robe, storage and an extra living area to accommodate this fast-growing family of five. 

Les, however, thinks it's time to leave this home behind and upgrade to something bigger and brighter. 

Andrew's case to 'List It'

Andrew is set quite the task with a budget of $1.4 million, the couple want something close to Frewville with two bathrooms, a master suite, a pool and two living areas. 

"Frewville is an inner-city suburb full of beautiful old houses close to just about everything you could want and about 5km away from CBD," Andrew says. "While their fully-refurbished home is completely amazing, a master bedroom without a window is not for me!"

Neale's case to 'Love It'

Since Neale had some budget left over, he decided to give the bathroom and laundry a freshen up as well as adding the required ensuite, walk-in-robe, extra storage and living area. 

"This home lacked living space for a growing family and only had one bathroom," Neale explains. "A clever renovation of the carport provided a wonderful master with en suite and walk-in-robes, extra living space and much needed storage."

The verdict

Lyndi and Les seemed completely taken by surprise at Neale's tremendous renovation and solved their problems. The renovation also upped the home's value from $900,000 to $1.1 million, but Lyndi is still stuck on the transformation Neale had made - especially because they're right by award-winning supermarket, Frewville Foodland!

Despite this, the pair decided to 'List It'. Although it was a tough decision to make, Lyndi said it made her realise what other properties are out there, and the next step up the property ladder was too irresistible.
