Open the front door at 2 Kinkora Place in Crestwood, and the bright and cheerful tones of pink will instantly pop out at you from the walls, sofa, tile in the bathroom and many other features, but diving into the history of the home reveals more heartfelt undertones.

The current owner and her daughter bought it a few years ago as a place they could call home together. However, the daughter was quite ill during the renovation and died almost a year ago of breast cancer.

Pink is internationally recognized as the color for breast cancer awareness, and along with the owner’s love of color, it explains a bold choice.

Home.by holly real estate agent Bianca Way says that when she first saw the house, the highlight was how the current owner had poured his heart and soul into it.

“I think that’s exactly what your home should be. It has to be a reflection of all the things that make you happiest, and that’s what this is. ”

The home has been on the market for a week, but Bianca says they’ve had about 20 groups through on inspection trips, leaving some blown away by the pink and others wondering how they might have toned it down.

“I would say that at least half just come to see, but those who are really crazy about it are figuring out how to best use the space. It’s a lot of house! ”

The home has faced many adjustments since it was built over 50 years ago and previously consisted of three separate homes, with a studio apartment downstairs, another one-bedroom unit and a three-bedroom unit upstairs. The combined total offers five bedrooms, two bathrooms, three toilets, a massive shed and an equally massive garage.

“The floor plan meanders in a way in all possible directions, so many people think about how they can practically live in space,” says Bianca.

Upstairs you will find elegantly decorated bedrooms and a seating area, all with incredible views of the Majura region and spread out to the Black Mountain Tower.

As the peacock-LED-lit window at the front of the home suggests, the living rooms downstairs are designed to stand out. A flamboyant mix of pink, warm yellow colors and romantic jewel tones perfectly complements the style and aesthetics of the lively renovation.

Quite a few of the pink items are fixtures, including the bench seat in the living room and the tile flooring in the laundry and bathroom, but Bianca says a coat of more neutral paint on the walls is an easy way to make it more tasty. to a wider audience.

“This is a home that rises because it’s true what they say: it’s impossible to be blue when you’re surrounded by pink!”

Bianca says this will be a house she will remember well into her career.

“One of my favorite things about real estate is being able to experience unique spaces designed by homeowners. The Queanbeyan region never disappoints with a wonderful, eclectic and diverse community of creative and risk-takers.”

Bianca is also using this sale as an opportunity to hold a fundraising event in partnership with the National Breast Cancer Foundation to help achieve ‘zero deaths due to breast cancer by 2030’. This ends the day after the auction and accepts donations online.

“I thought this is a great way to celebrate this space and support the owner and the process she went through, not to mention a lot of other women,” she says.

This home will be auctioned on site at 9 Saturday, December 4th.
