From drab to fab in just six months

From drab to fab in just six months

While many homes remain untouched for decades, some are transformed in the blink of an eye.

A western Sydney property which sold for $970,000 in late 2017 is already back on the market after undergoing a jaw-dropping overhaul.



The 739 sqm block at 74 Chelmsford Rd in South Wentworthville then housed an original fibro home, which was knocked down to make way for a modern mansion.

Now selling with a guide of $1.6 million to $1.8 million, it took the vendors just six months to build, according to Starr Partners agent Matthew Carpenter.

“The property had been sold with DA approval to build duplexes on the site, but the sellers decided to build a family home instead,” Mr Carpenter said.

“They do that for a living so they are already building to sell, and then do it all over again,” he said.

Packed with luxury inclusions, the two-storey residence features a CCTV system, LED lighting and high ceilings throughout, with some rooms showcasing a double height void.

Double front doors open to reveal a wide entry hall, which has a rumpus room to the left.

This spot makes hosting guests a breeze with a built-in bar.

Further ahead is an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room, which features sleek wall recesses and an integrated gas fireplace.

Glass splashbacks, an island breakfast bar and handle-free cupboards feature in the kitchen, along with a butler’s pantry.

The top level has another living space, a bathroom and four bedrooms, two with private balconies and one with an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.

Arguably the best aspect of the property is the entertainment area at the rear. There is a covered outdoor space fitted with a barbecue, pizza oven and a sink.

This area overlooks a pool with a water feature, as well as a cabana complete with its own bathroom.

Mr Carpenter said the house had a commanding street presence and was proving popular with local buyers.


“We have held four open homes and had about 60 groups through … the typical number of inspections by this stage is about 10, so it is a standout.”

The property is set to go under the hammer on-site during the morning of Saturday, March 2.
