Once upon a time...
April 9, 2010
...in a tiny mountain-side cottage, there lived a slightly strange but very content couple. Their blended family of six children were either grown up and independent or living with their other parent. So when the time came to enter the property market together, they found a perfect 3 bedroom home with city views, 1/3 acre of native gardens and a modest outdoor living area for their fur-kids to enjoy.
Ahhh... life was blissful.
And then, one by one, the chicks returned to the nest.
Very soon, their perfect 3 bedroom home with city views became seriously crowded and as they loved the location so much, an extension and renovation seemed the most logical solution. "I've got an idea" he said to his woman. "Lets go looking at display homes to get ideas of what we can do to our place".
Now any intelligent woman knows, that you don't just go looking at display houses - you fall in love with them. And that is exactly what happened. From the moment they entered the Porter Davis Marina 42, a new romance began. Five bedrooms with semi-ensuites to the 4 minor bedrooms upstairs. An amazing informal living area that beckons you to follow the bi-fold doors out into the alfresco. A private master suite downstairs (as the slightly strange couple aren't getting any younger)and an impressive 2 storey void with open staircase in the entry foyer. And although the couple looked at almost every display home in the state of Victoria, once they had their hearts set on Marina, there was no turning back.
Stay tuned for the next instalment... Happy LANDings
