Take a closer look at the makeover of the Macleay Island house in Queensland, performed by the Selling Houses team.
It should be paradise, a sub tropical island off the coast of Brisbane, but for Raice and Chi Chi it’s more like purgatory. They need to upsize to accommodate their growing tree lopping business, but have failed to find a buyer in a whopping 6 years! To add to their woes, it seems half the island is for sale. Is this our team’s toughest challenge yet?
An Island home may seem like a dream but the reality is demand for property on Macleay is fairly low, so Raice and Chi Chi’s house needed to be well presented.
The biggest issue was the kitchen. There was nothing we could salvage, so the whole lot had to go. Shaynna chose new flat pack units from Bunnings and configured them in an L shaped layout. She blocked up the old serving hatch to create more wall space. New appliances, including a proper cooker, finished the room.
The whole house was painted throughout and luxury vinyl floor laid in the living areas to create a consistent look. Shaynna updated the window blinds in the lounge and bedrooms to add character and texture. The blinds had a streamlined finish so were perfect for the small home.
