Humble garage transformed into luxury six-bedroom eco-home worth £1.25MILLION 

A humble suburban garage that was transformed into a luxury six-bedroom home has gone on the market for £1.25million.

The stylish eco-friendly property in Rhiwbina, near Cardiff, was built on the spot of the garage sitting between houses on a busy hillside road.

The ‘up-and-over’ garage was demolished and replaced with the stylish dream home with cutting-edge design.

It also boasts eco-friendly living as rainwater is collected from the roof to flush the toilets and irrigate the garden.

Builders from MJ Construction carried out the stunning makeover from just an old garage bought 12 years ago for an undisclosed price understood to be less than £100,000.

It is now home to an artist who is selling the property.

Michael Lewis, of MJ Construction, said: ‘We always envisaged this house as having a luxury feel and an edginess to the interior, and this image was successfully carried throughout the house by using sumptuous fabrics, luxury flooring and high-end bathroom fittings.
