For those of you that knew me well before this blog will remember the house that I use to live in at Wynnum. For those who have never been to the old house, met me recently, or perhaps never at all, I use to live with my parents and they owned a Queensland style house within a suburb of Brisbane called Wynnum.
I spent 23 years in the house in Wynnum, and got to know it very well. It was where we played countless games of Cricket in the backyard, I would practice my basketball like crazy in the backyard, we would kick the footy, or soccer ball, and as we got older, the house was the scene for heaps of parties including my 21st birthday.
A couple of months before I left for Germany, Mum and Dad sold the house to go their separate ways. When they sold it, it wasn’t in the best condition, but in my opinion it was still very nice. This house always had potential, and would be really nice one day if someone decided to give it some tender love and care.
Well that day has arrived. After Mum and Dad sold it, the new owners started the renovations. Before I left I took this photo of the old place.
As you can see it was under pretty heavy renovations. I also took a photo of inside, just for the memories.
This was the main living area up stairs for people that do not know. The kitchen was to the left of the photo and the main room was through the door.
Ok now its time for the new photos. I was alerted to this by a friend from school who drove past and saw the change. The link for the site is here. Thanks to the site for the photos! As you will see the change is pretty big. The place looks great.
Ok, now for the price. I would never have guessed they would even considered putting so much money on the place, but they have. If you want it, you can have it for only $899 000. It took Mum and Dad over 1 year to sell the house. Wonder how long it will take this time. I don’t really think I would fancy taking out a loan for 900K, especially when the RBA keep raising rates. But then again, anyone considering this place would have to have a huge deposit, if not all the capital.
Anyway, I was stunned when I saw it, and now seeing what it could have been like I want it back! Maybe one day I could afford to buy it back… haha wishful thinking!
Bye for now. Scott
