Renovation of Chadstone Villa Unit

Monday, 09 May 2011

This two bedroom villa unit was recently purchased by a client for investment purposes. It appeared that the unit had not received any maintenance in more than 20 years and was looking very tired and run down. The client wanted the unit renovated in a cost effective fashion with the aim of maximising their rental return. It was decided that the scope of works would include the replacement of the kitchen including all appliances and the inclusion of a dishwasher, replacement of the vanity, toilet and shower screen, resurfacing of the existing bath and wall tiles, replacing all tapware, upgrading of the electrical system, replacement of all light fittings, switches and power points, replacement of the carpets, front and rear doors, all door handles and window furnishings throughout and a full internal repaint.

The end result is a smart and comfortable villa unit ready for its new occupants. With careful selection of tradespeople and some smart purchasing of appliances, fixtures and fittings, the project was undertaken over a period of eight weeks (over the Christmas/New Year period) and came in well under the client’s target budget, including all management fees.
