IT’S very rare to come across an older home that has been so extensively renovated that it is basically new.
However, that is exactly the case for this three-bedroom home at 9 Tremain Avenue, located just outside the central business district in West Bathurst.
Bathurst Real Estate agent Sandy Fairbrother said the owners have gone above and beyond the renovate this home.
The list of improvements is long and includes work inside and out.
The external cladding has been removed and replaced, all the internal walls have been stripped and redone, there is a new roof, new plumbing, new electrics and new floors.
“They basically rebuilt the whole house and just left the footprint,” Mr Fairbrother said.
One of the new additions to the home was the front deck, which provides a great entry into the home.
In its original floor plan, you would enter via the living room, but with the renovations this was changed to a short hallway.
The living area has been moved to the rear of the home, while three bedrooms sit at the front.
One of the bedrooms takes up much of the space that was originally dedicated to the living room.
It still features the original fireplace.
As for the master bedroom, it now features an ensuite that used to be the bathroom of the home.
The owners were very clever in the way they have presented the ensuite, selecting tiles that give a sense of the age of the home.
The main bathroom comes off the open-plan living area and looks stunning.
It features marble tiles from floor to ceiling, with a new tub, shower, vanity and toilet.
The open-plan living area is a stunning, modern space.
There is a small dining area as you enter off the hallway, with the kitchen over to the right.
A living space sits at the very back.
The rear yard has also been transformed during the renovations.
Bi-fold doors open on to a brand new deck, while pavers lead out to the carport and laundry.
There is still a nice grassed area for children and pets to enjoy.
Other great features of this home include under house storage, Caesar stone benches, floating timber floors and a heat transfer system on the roof.
Mr Fairbrother said this home was in a great location and in an area of Bathurst continuing to see improvements.
“It’s a pretty unique property in what it has to offer, probably a bit ahead of its time for Bathurst,” Mr Fairbrother said.
This property will be open to inspect on Saturday from 12.15pm to 12.45pm.
