first_imgChris and Lou Williams loved renovating their Ashgrove property so much, they’ve decided to do another. Photo: Annette DewFriends told 31-year-old Chris Williams and his wife, Lou, 30, they were crazy, but the couple have loved renovating.“Everyone hates it, and we didn’t,” Mr Williams said.“People usually shake their heads and say, ‘Why are you doing it to yourselves?’”The pair spent 15 months and about $1 million creating their future family home at 54 Moulton St, Ashgrove, before deciding it was too hard to stop at just one venture. The home is a comfortable mix of contemporary and colonial.“It was never on the cards during the process that we’d sell it, it was just at the end of it we said, ‘Well that was really fun, we kind of want to do it again!’”Because they intended to settle in the house, Mr Williams said they didn’t skimp on the work which resulted in a stunning five-bedroom, three-bathroom design masterpiece.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour ago The outdoor entertaining space is inviting … and very hip.When asked about their favourite spaces, Chris said they love the central living areas, but have different spots for downtime.“My place is the media room downstairs where I can relax, have a beer and watch sport while Lou’s space is upstairs. She got a bedroom that she’s set up as a sewing room so she’s particularly drawn to that room.” No expense was spared in creating a beautiful family home.A look through the home reveals a tip of the hat to the original cottage, combined with contemporary finishes such as polished concrete, architectural timber walls and ceilings, a dark-and-light colour palette, video security system and ducted airconditioning. There’s high-end architectural features throughout.Mr Williams said, however, the greatest thing about the home was its livability.“It just flows,” he said.The renovation is sure to be a hit with viewers too when it appears on the new lifestyle show, “Ready, Set, Reno” on September 10, on 9 Life.54 Moulton St, Ashgrove, will be auctioned today at noon by Josh Brown of Ray White New Farm.Follow Kieran Clair on Twitter at @kieranclair or Facebook on Kieran Clair — journolast_img read more
