Buy & Hold

11 May St, Lilyfield

by Dean Berman

An extended house in Sydney’s Inner West.

Originally purchased for $760,000 in June 2009.

The property was DA approved in 2013 for first floor alterations and additions to the dwelling amount to $118,500.

The cost of work can often be more than the quoted figure.

The house went from a 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom to a 4 bedroom 2 bathroom.

Sold for $2,100,000 by Cindy Kennedy and Marcus Hejtmanek of McGrath.

I like the fun colour of the facade and the open plan kitchen, living and dining area. The use of materials are really cool such as what looks like chipboard vaulted ceiling, wood and classic furniture pieces. I think the addition of grass in the outdoor area has increased the appeal of the property.
