16 Langlee Ave, Waverley . That’s it Sydney property buyers. It will take a minimum of $2.5M to buy this cute but tiny house in Waverley. The property market in Sydney is nuts, ridic, hilarious or just simply depressing. Signs are the market is about to explode again. House are being sold before Auction and there is a black market for properties that never reach the illustrious pages of the Wenty.
Fatigue sets in about now so I’m here to help. Apart from a dated kitchen which a splash of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint will fix, the house is ready to go. The backyard faces north, the house is painted that fashionable grey colour (although only the facade, guys you could have painted the sides). The garage is like a cupcake.. so take a long tape measure and see if the Jeep fits in. Bonus playroom in the attic and home office outside.
The so-called ‘formal’ rooms are simply furnished and look more usable than normal.
Brilliant choice of window and door frames. The industrial look frames are loft style and not simply a concertina fold back look.
There’s a home office/ study lurking in the back yard. I advise looking at the google satellite maps closely. There is an apartment building at the rear.
Sleigh beds make me feel sorry for the removalists.
The kitchen is the only room with a high need for renovation. The cheap option is to paint the cupboards and replace the door knobs. Expensive option is to gut and redo and get a better flow to the adjoining family room.
Lounge room is now a TV room. A practical use of an otherwise ‘formal’ room.
