AFTER 18 months of hard work Paula and Clinton Turnbull have given this private 1930s Queenslander a new lease on life.
The couple bought the property with the intention of making it their long term home but a change in circumstances has meant they have listed the property for sale.
“We’ve worked on it every weekend since we’ve been here,” Mrs Turnbull said.
“It had been empty for about 12 months when we bought it so the garden was completely overrun. We did about 10 trips to the dump with garden waste.

“It was a lot of hard work but there is still more the next owner can do.”
The couple not only tamed the garden, they also repainted the house, put in new carpet, airconditioners, blinds and some statement lighting.
“The home has the most beautiful light in every room and there are eight sets of french doors throughout,” Mrs Turnbull said.
“It’s a very cool home. You get a lot of very nice breeze and it’s so leafy too.”
The elevated home has a full length front veranda, high ceilings, VJ walls and a back deck.
There is a lounge room with fireplace, a family room, living room and dining room.

The country-style kitchen has plenty of bench and cupboard space and there is also a bathroom, separate toilet and a sleep-out upstairs.
Downstairs there is a rumpus room, laundry and bathroom and parking for up for five cars.
Mrs Turnbull said the 774sq m block was very private.
“The home is hidden behind the trees and we’ve planted lilly pillies, which will grow quickly and add further privacy,” she said.
“We also get amazing birdlife. We get lorikeets in the jacaranda tree and kookaburras too.”
