10A North Street is listed for sale
THEIR renovated Queenslander was dubbed Australia’s best “instant hotel” and now their latest project has hit the market.
Brisbane couple Terry and Anita’s West End house scored a perfect 10 from expert judge Juliet Ashworth during the final episode of Instant Hotel, and they were crowed the winners of the series which debuted on Channel 7 late last year.

At the time, the couple said they had no idea the show was a competition.
The show featured couples with AirBnb-style properties travelling between homes and rating the experience.
Terry, a developer, and Anita, who has a background in interior design, spent 12 months renovating the two-bedroom worker’s cottage in West End, turning it in to a luxury rental property.
Their latest renovated property at 10A North St in Newmarket is now on the market, and is listed with Place New Farm.

Agent Alex Rutherford said the property was launched to the market a week ago, and there had already been strong interest.
“Buyers can have a house without having to do a thing,” she said. “It is in a good street and close to the Reading (shopping) complex.”
Ms Rutherford said Newmarket in general was proving “very popular” with couples and young families due to its proximity tp good schools, public transport and the CBD.
“They are wanting character homes on reasonable sized blocks,” she said.
