Couple see potential in transforming 1920s Ipswich cottage

first_img Inside 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing before the renovations.When the couple moved into the home three months later, they kicked off renovations straight away.“We lived with my parents while we did the major renovations – knocking out walls, putting in the new kitchen and bathrooms,” Mrs Bennett, 36, said.“I was pregnant with our second baby. We basically had 10 weeks to get the house liveable, on the inside, before he arrived. “We actually moved in the night before I was booked in to have Oscar. We didn’t even stay there the night.”Mrs Bennett said they had been looking for a house for “quite some time” in the Ipswich area. We knew we wanted to renovate, we knew we only wanted to stay in it for 12 months while I was on maternity leave, be close to my family, and we knew we wanted something with character,” she said.“We had seen a lot of homes that were already ‘renovated’ but we are extremely fussy and weren’t happy with the style or the workmanship.“We pride ourselves on our high end finishes and creative interior design when it comes to renovating. “When we saw this house, we knew automatically it had potential. It was a quaint cottage from the 1920s but unsure what story it was telling.” This Sadliers Crossing has been revamped inside and out. The property is being sold by RE/MAX Ignite’s Roxanne Workman for offers over $569,000. 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing before the renovations.

Mrs Bennett said inside the house, the kitchen and bathroom had no connection and the floorplan was disjointed – there was no flow.

We modernised the entrance and opened up the space creating a cathedral ceiling. “When you walk in now, there is a sense of opulence. Before, it was enclosed, dark and somewhat uninviting. “The kitchen was definitely functional however, it did not suit the style of the house. There was also no clearly defined lounge area. We have made the most of the space by removing walls and adding onto the back of the house.”center_img Time taken: Just under 12 months Reno spend: $165,000 Before renos, the outside area of 33 Cribb St was hidden by trees and pot plants.Set on a massive 809sq m block, Mrs Bennett described the landscaping as “extremely cluttered and high maintenance”. “You would not believe that it was actually a large block of land – it was hidden by trees, pot plants and oh so many sandstone steppers, which we repurposed to create a cobblestone like path from the front gate to our front door,” Mrs Bennett said.“It took weekend upon weekend over many months to see the potential of the space. “We created gardens around the perimeter of the house and built a new white picket fence to replace the old chain link fence that had stood for many years prior.” The new kitchen at 33 Cribb St, Sadliers Crossing. Check out the spacious new bathroom.As with most projects, the biggest jobs were the kitchen and bathrooms, Mrs Bennett said.“They were the most expensive too. This was due to knocking out walls and expanding spaces to make the house feel larger, overall,” she said.Mrs Bennett said due to the age of the house, there had been a number of changes over the years. “The laundry was located down a set of internal concrete stairs. We decided to bring it up to the same level of the house and use some of the space as living/entertaining area,” she said.Tim worked closely with Mrs Bennett’s dad, an electrician with a broad knowledge in the industry after working in construction for 50 odd years. “They both get along well as they have the same work ethic and desire to complete a project to the best possible standard,” Mrs Bennett said.The couple are now selling their home to live between their Ipswich and Brisbane workplaces.
