This client lived overseas for many years and, on returning to Australia, decided to downsize from her north shore home. She was looking for a more cosmopolitan lifestyle in the eastern suburbs.
We started our journey looking at 3 bedroom apartments in Potts Point, Elizabeth Bay and Surry Hills with either harbour or district views.
However, the apartments we saw in her budget were much smaller than she could live in with two adult children. They also didn’t have the light and space she wanted.
Many were in buildings that needed work and had high strata levies. We then expanded the search to terraces houses in Paddington and Woollahra. We soon found this wonderful off-market terrace house with great indoor/outdoor flow, high ceilings, three large bedrooms with built in robes and a clever renovation which ensured good natural light throughout and created open plan living. It ticked all the boxes.
The property is also only a short walk to the shopping and restaurants on Queen St, Paddington five-ways and Oxford St. It offers all the excitement of inner city living. Our client is absolutely delighted with the purchase.
If you’re looking to downsize in the eastern suburbs, we’d love to help you too. Get in touch with Sally James today.
