The house has been partially renovated. RE/MAX Regency agent Charl Louw, who is marketing the property with Augusta Swayn, said the bathtub was purchased to be used in the renovation. But after not being able to complete the updates, the owner placed it in the backyard as a quirky, last minute addition. “It was an impromptu decision,” Mr Louw said. “He bought that for the second bathroom but time hasn’t been on their side.“It’s there as a piece, the next owners can use it there and connect it or use it in the bathroom if they convert it.” Mr Louw said the renovations had been completed except for the second bathroom, where the bath would have gone. “He converted a three bedroom, one bathroom to a five-bedroom house with a new kitchen and impressive outside area — it’s a real stunner in Mudgeeraba.” Brick features walls are on show throughout. The claw-foot bathtub standing in all its glory. Buyers keen to bathe in their backyard surrounded by nature need look no further than this recently renovated Mudgeeraba property. The five-bedroom house at 168 Wallandra Rd has a large yard with a covered entertainment area and plenty of grass, plus the freestanding bathtub in the middle. Unfortunately the bath isn’t connected to water, so filling it up might take a while but could prove handy for a number of things — an ice bucket when hosting guests or a spot to wash the dog, maybe?
