In a move that has many wondering, Cherie Barber, publicly known as Australia's'

"Reno Queen", has acquired one of Sydney's smallest apartments.

Located in the prestigious inner-city suburb of Balmain and just metres from harbourside parks and ferry, Barber has acquired an 18 square metre studio apartment for just $260,000, a testament to her keen eye for potential, even in the most compact of spaces.

The Balmain studio, nestled in one of Sydney’s most desirable harbourside locations, is set to undergo a complete transformation in just five days under Barber\'s experienced hands.

Known for her ability to add value through smart renovations, Barber\'s latest project aims to inspire many on space utilisation and interior efficiency.

“With housing affordability a national crisis, and #interest rates increasing, tiny home living offers people an easier pathway to a debt-free lifestyle.

“Socially, there’s a growing movement towards minimalism and simplifying life, with people seeking to declutter their lives and reduce their footprint. I’m excited to share my latest project with others so they can do just that” said Barber.
