Comments on 3 Myamyn Street ARMADALE

This is what I wrote in 2008: This is a lovely home in need of some Tender Loving Care - one of my favourite smaller homes I've seen this year. With a great renovation this could rate into the 800 or 900's. Expect competition.

This is what I think in 2014: 

This was an exquisite shell when I first saw it up for sale in 2008 and it's been finished off with a lot of class by Nicholas Murray architects.

Old meets new - underground added - no shortcuts in thinking, in building, in materials on the rear extension either.

This is a professional couples dream home and if it had a lift it would be a pinnacle for downsizers as well.

This part of Armadale has been getting strong prices for years now and its obvious why, after a visit or a google. Its brilliantly positioned.

The home itself has a façade to fight for in that its so memorable - very much the baby version of what was sold recently in Mercer in terms of evocative to look at.

At this point I should say well done on being brave and digging the underground car park in - this home as it was in 2008 presented many opportunities, but it also presented a number of issues; that if not met head on and in a courageous manner we would have seen an end result far inferior to what lies there now.

OK lets get some balance, some perspective - what are its faults?

Blank look, blank space - there aren't any dealbreakers except one and we will get to that later.

The bathroom downstairs means a walk into the corridor for the bedroom occupants - this is how desperate I am to find fault to look balanced.

2 levels of steps mean the occupants have to be fit. The bedroom configuration may not suit all as its 2 up and 2 down - but hey if you bought it for my family I'd get over it.

So rear yard, northern orientation, impressive cellar. Wow it's all good.

A better mid-sized gem would be hard to find - maybe left field and very different would be 11 Malin St Kew - it brought out the same sort of feelings.

And so we come to big issue - the dealbreaker for many.

Can you think of it?

I was at the open and I couldn't really move around and not one, not two, but 3 people came and asked me the same question about the same issue.

October 25th will resolve that and for all but one the hurt will linger for a little longer than it has in the past.

What our clients had to say about James

Always sceptical about it, but did what I was told - Good decision. Mal, you purchased 11 Condor for me a few years back. Sold it today. Good deal. Turned out to be an excellent choice. Worked well for the kids and made a tidy profit. Always sceptical about it, but did what I was told - Good decision. Thanks, Douglas
