The Parkway, Balgownie Renovation Update – Stage 1

Tammie is a single Mum to two boys and has taken on the challenge of renovating a character-filled house in Balgownie that she purchased a few months ago.

Initially, the criteria for the property was anywhere North of Wollongong, with good bones and a good history. Once Tammie saw this property in Balgownie, she fell in love with the Cyprus Pine floors and the size, as well as the potential she could see it had.

With 4 bedrooms and a huge lounge area and bar, there is already lots of space, but there is definitely room for improvement. Immediately Tammie could picture transforming the bar into a study nook with a bookcase, updating the bathrooms, and creating a master bedroom worth talking about. The biggest challenge for the renovation will be the kitchen and outdoor deck which will take the bulk of the budget creating a beautiful open plan flow perfect for entertaining. Downstairs will be a secluded media room, set up to function as a teenagers retreat or a home cinema.
