The vendors at 5 Bent St have worked with the original charm of the property.
“My wife has a really good eye for interiors and was keen to take on the challenge. The property was extremely rundown and dilapidated when we bought it.”
Today you would have no idea that the place was in a bad way.
Arranged as a spacious three bedroom, two bathroom main residence the property includes polished floorboards, freshly painted wall panelling and a classic contemporary design style.
The property includes the main house and three separate apartments.
Mr Ironside said that the main bedroom with ensuite was one of the biggest renovation challenges, with grotty tiles and original doors. It now includes some trendy barn doors and a new white wall tiling.
The property also includes three completely separate apartments, all on the one title.
In the centre is a two level loft apartment, currently used as a holiday weekender, with two other one bedroom flats behind, both currently tenanted.
The ensuite of the main bedroom includes sliding barn doors.

“It feels like more of board house because the tenants are friends,” Mr Ironside said.
“But everything is completely separate – it’s a great set-up. The tenants are all keen to stay on – they love the location.”
Just a short stroll from the town centre, the home is close to restaurants, cafes, a Coles supermarket and the beach.
A popular location for holiday makers, Mr Ironside said that he thought the house was originally built as a weekender.
“From what I’ve heard, a well-to-do person built the house, and you can see that in the design – there are seven different types of cornices, which is supposed to be a sign of wealth,” he said.
“We worked with the original style of the home – that’s what we loved about it, and it’s go real character.”
