Incredible renovation of 1980s Mater prize home

Posted on by

first_img33 Flockton St, Stafford Heights, Brisbane.This Mater Prize Home — the height of luxury in the 1980s — has been jettisoned into the 21st century with an unbelievable makeover.The home was valued at $140,000 in the 1980s and was Mater Prize Home Number 144 with tickets offered in books for $5 or $10. Located within the sought-after 15km ring around Brisbane, the home now has a new lease on life.The solid bones of the Mater Prize home were given a Hamptons style makeover by every one of the Maloneys — the family that owns it.“I project managed and was the wallpaper stripper and landscaper and I had a builder do the bathrooms and kitchen for us,” said owner Jim Maloney. A press clipping of the side veranda area in the 1980s. New flooring, a whitewash, new light fixtures all add up to a fresh Hamptons feel.

Next came the new kitchen and bathrooms and the house was painted white.“We ummed and ahhed about the original round windows,” he said.“They are unique and we thought they fitted the Hamptons brief being circular so we plasterboarded around them, simplified them a little bit more and now people comment on them straight away.”But some things have remained untouched, like the back retaining wall with besser blocks turned the opposite way so plants can be potted in them. The back area with the blocks for planting — way ahead of the vertical gardening trend.They believe the 782 sqm block in a “prestigious pocket of Stafford Heights” “offers quality on a grand scale”.“Exhibiting Hamptons style luxury in every aspect, this 1980s Mater prize home has been completely transformed to create a modern day haven for the whole family,” was how it was described.The property is for sale by private treaty. The home was given a Hamptons style feel outside and in.“The kids helped early on with the bedrooms, stripping wallpapers and painting the walls.“They earned a bit of extra pocket money that way.”The Moloney family has renovated townhouses and built from scratch, but 33 Flockton Street, Stafford Heights was their first flip house.Mr Maloney said his family has “never renovated to sell before”.“It was a big one to take on but it was worth doing. We intended to do it in the two years,” he said.The facade was the first to be changed, pulling out the ornate Italian style posts and replacing them with clean square posts to begin the Hamptons style renovation. The circular glass feature walls at the entry were original to the house — just given a fresh treatment and paint job.

Rondon: I was ahead of Ighalo on Man Utd target list

Posted on by

first_img Rondon, who has scored five goals in 11 games in the Chinese Super League, said via the Mirror: “The chance was very close to come back to England. “The owner of my club said that they paid a lot for me, he wanted me to stay and didn’t want to let me go. He said: ‘It’s not in our minds to let you go.’ “I talked to Rafa and then they chose another player, it finished and I didn’t have any chance to go. “I stayed and I take that experience with me in my life, in my career and I have to wait because I’ve signed for two years and if I stay for two years it doesn’t matter for me. “My agents didn’t say too much. They said they’d call me if they had some news but the opportunity to go was really, really close and the decisions are with the owners. “It was a good opportunity for me to come back to Europe but I stayed in China and then we will see what happens in the future. “I enjoyed England a lot, I followed the Premier League a lot, my children now speak better English than me! “It’s a very good thing for me and it was a big opportunity for me and my family.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 The 30-year-old former Newcastle striker was rumoured to be one of a number of targets in January, but now the Venezuelan has revealed how close he came to joining Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford. The Norwegian boss was desperately hunting for a forward in January with Marcus Rashford injured. Bournemouth frontman Josh King was an option for United, while Rondon says his club and boss Rafa Benitez were also contacted about a move for the forward. However, Dalian Professional blocked the move, as they did not want to lose Rondon after paying £16.5million for him last summer on a £8million-a-year contract. Instead, United looked elsewhere in the Chinese Super League and ended up signing Odion Ighalo from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua on loan, with Rondon suggesting he was ahead of Igalo on Solskjaer’s list. read also:Rondon opens up on how he reacted to Man Utd signing Ighalo instead of himAdvertisement Loading… Salomon Rondon has revealed his club Dalian Professional blocked a move to Manchester United in January.

Gerrard revels in Coutinho ‘brilliance’

Posted on by

first_img Press Association The Brazil international has scored once, had two assists and looked one of the side’s brightest players in recent matches and although he has yet to complete a full 90 minutes, having been substituted in his three starts, Gerrard has no fears the youngster will be unable to handle the pace of the Premier League. “I think you’ll see the best of him next season when he gets a full pre-season under his belt and gets used to the speed of the game,” Gerrard added. “What he has shown for 55 or 60 minutes is that he’s a top player and he belongs in a Liverpool shirt. If we can get that for 90 minutes from him next season then he’s going to be a great asset for us.” Team-mate Jose Enrique is another similarly impressed by Coutinho’s start to his Anfield career. “The numbers speak for themselves: in four games he has two assists and one goal so I hope he will continue like this scoring goal and making assists,” said the left-back, who combined well with the Brazilian in the build-up to Liverpool’s first goal against Tottenham last weekend. “He is the type of a player, as a big team, you have to have. He can create from nothing in a one versus one. He is playing really well right now and he is the type of player we need. “Defenders are important but you need people who can score goals and we have now.” January signing Philippe Coutinho’s “moments of magical brilliance” have given Liverpool just the lift they needed, according to captain Steven Gerrard.center_img The 20-year-old has played just 202 minutes since his £8.5million arrival from Inter Milan but his impact has already been significant. “He’s got moments of magical brilliance,” said the Reds captain of Coutinho, who is already on his fourth professional club having left Vasco da Gama for Italy in 2010 and also spent six months on loan at Espanyol. last_img read more

Salah praised after Liverpool thrash Leicester

Posted on by

first_img(BBC) – MANAGER Jurgen Klopp called Liverpool’s reaction to going a goal down against Leicester the “best I’ve ever seen” after Mohamed Salah’s double helped them come from behind to win at Anfield.Jamie Vardy gave the visitors an early lead when he poked home from a Riyad Mahrez pass before Salah equalised in the second half.The Egypt international then turned Harry Maguire on the edge of the area before firing in his second of the day – and 17th Premier League goal of the season – to give Liverpool the lead.Klopp described the hosts’ performance as “perfect” and the Reds, who will finish the year in fourth place, extended their unbeaten run to 15 games.Leicester stay in eighth but have now gone five games without a victory.“On perfect days we win football games,” said Klopp.“The crowd were unbelievable and we needed them today to score these two goals. It’s a good team performance and a well-deserved win.”The only concern will surround the fitness of match-winner Salah, who Klopp said was “limping” when he was substituted with less than 10 minutes left to play.“We have to check it,” added the German. “We tried to change it as quick as possible and of course that is not too good.”last_img read more
