Two levels of luxury at 20 Midgley St, Carina will be offered for auction on Saturday.
TWO years ago, 20 Midgley St, Carina was a ‘cute” 3 bedroom cottage.
The house as it used to look with a compact front patio.
It goes to auction this weekend having doubled in size.
The sophisticated entertainer as it looks today.
It is now a four bedroom, two and a half bathroom, two-storey house with views of the Seven Hills Bushland Reserve from its new back deck.
What hasn’t changed is its address, just two streets from Camp Hill, where the median house price is around $260,000 more.
Carina is 7km east of the city and borders Carindale, Carina Heights, Cannon Hill and Camp Hill.
Three registered bidders are already preparing for this Saturday’s auction and Ray White Stones Corner agent Ben Cannon is confident of a good turnout.
“This is rare,’’ Mr Cannon said. “Most times registrations don’t come in until the day.
“It’s an indication that come Saturday there’ll be some spirited bidding.”

The renovated 1950s post-war home has a large communal living space that flows from the front to the back of the house, with the entertainers kitchen in the middle.
The modern kitchen separates the lounge and dining areas.
The wing to the side has a master bedroom and second bedroom.
Downstairs is the family room and two bedrooms with a patio.
“The upside of this place is that the owners have meticulously finished it,’’ he said.

“That’s what shines with this place. All the work has been thoughtful and executed really well.”
Interest in the property is coming from inner city professionals looking to buy their first house, locals moving within Carina, and buyers from the bayside looking to downsize closer to the city.
“Carina seems to be hot property,’’ Mr Cannon said.
“It’s that one belt out from Camp Hill where affordability is becoming more of a challenge.”
