Love It Or List It Australia

St Ives Chase house: before and after

Sharyn and John had a familiar dilemma on this week’s Love It Or List It Australia.

As empty nesters living in the sought-after Sydney suburb of St Ives Chase, Sharyn and John had reached a crossroads in their life as they approached retirement.

Neale had a budget of $110,000 to create a space to entertain guests, adding a home office and updating the outdated bathrooms.

Neale enlarged the family bathroom by knocking through the separate toilet, and updated the master suite.
Overall, the warm and muted colour palette added a much-needed touch of luxury to the house, increasing its market value from $1.6m to a huge $2m.

Read the full recap of this episode here and see the incredible makeover in the pictures below.
