Maree Whitchurch is downsizing from her four-bedroom home at Bardon now that her kids have grown up.Mrs Whitchurch has lived at 36 Gordon Rd, since 1998 and said the property was now too big to maintain.“We bought in this area because we had lived in the western suburbs when we were younger,” Mrs Whitchurch said.“We were drawn back to the area after working elsewhere.”36 Gordon St, Bardon.Mrs Whitchurch is moving to a townhouse development over the hill at Canopy Bardon.The restored 1950s cottage was “a lot smaller” when Mrs Whitchurch bought it years ago.“In 2001 we extended the home,” she said.“It took a good 18 months of planning and then we put the renovations off for 12 months because of GFC and we had another child in that time,” she said.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 2:08Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -2:08 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
