A jaw-dropping renovation has transformed the one-bedroom apartment at 5/20 Phillipps Street, which is on the market with a $490,000 to $540,000 price guide.
Tired and dated just months ago, the residence is now more modern, light and open.
Owner Matt Causer, who revitalised the apartment through his business Eco Constructions, said he had a plan from the moment he saw it.
“As soon as I walked in the door I knew what I was going to do,” he said.
“I’m thrilled with the outcome, it’s amazing, I really love it.”
Mr Causer said the renovation, which included knocking out and moving walls, took about four months of intense work to complete.
