Sunrise Beach House - Noosa

The minute we saw this house we knew it would have to be a great doer-upper. Elevated with great views to the hinterland, we thought that with a little T.L.C. ...... mmmm well a little more than T.L.C. perhaps! The central wall was completely removed and re-built with a new entry to the bedroom wing. Essential wardrobes were added to the master bedroom and a linen press was included in the hallway. Spotted gum hardwood timber floors replaced the vinyl floating floors and a new kitchen, bathroom and ensuite were installed. The bi-fold doors were added to create the perfect transition from the lounge room to the deck area. A light and neutral colour scheme was designed to keep the home open and bright.
