Melbourne - Darina & Lucy Property Factsheet

Darina & Lucy

SEARCH LOCATION: Melbourne

BUDGET- $700, 000 - $750, 000

THE BRIEF: Having lost her 1960’s minimalist architect designed home in the second Christchurch earthquake, Darina made the decision to move to Melbourne to be closer to her daughter Lucy and her husband. Darina is looking a house with character but also modern touches like a sleek kitchen and bathroom. She wants 2 bedrooms plus study or 3 bedrooms, as she’s into yoga and natural healing and would like space to set up her massage table for treatments.  Darina has been displaced for 2 years and it is time for her to have her own place again.
