first_img5 Clithero Avenue, Buderim, is a good example of a classic Queenslander.They’re one of the nation’s favourite style of property, but what is it about Queenslanders that makes us love them so?According to Dion Seminara, the director of design at Dion Seminara Architecture, it is their timeless elegance.He said people loved the look of the exteriors and the sense of homeliness that they evoked.“They’re made of timber and tin and that resonates with people, it’s homely,” he said.And it seems we can’t get enough of them.Mr Seminara said at least 70 per cent of his business involved the restoration of period properties. 26 Cintra Road, Bowen Hills offers buyers a blast from the past.“Every week we get at least one call from someone looking to renovate a Queenslander or worker’s cottage,” he said.Yet their popularity could be what leads to their demise, as more people undertake renovations that may ruin a property’s original features rather than enhance them.“What is important is to protect what you love — the look from the front, and good proportion and balance inside,” Mr Seminara said. 26 Cintra Road has VJ panelling and decorative architrave and is on sale through Ray WhiteYou also need to be careful when buying a Queenslander, because many of them are not fit for renovation in the way you may want, no matter how charming they may appear.“People have to remember that these were the project homes of yesteryear. They were picked up and dumped on sites without much care or consideration for the surroundings or anything,” he said.Mr Seminara said location and orientation were important when choosing a home, along with not mixing up styles. The windows at 5 Clithero Avenue in Buderim are as dreamy as the view“A big mistake people make is they raise the home too much and repeat the materials from the original house on the ground floor exterior,” he said. “Replicating the materials used is not in keeping with the original style of these homes,” he said.

first_imgAt the same time, despite his weekend remarks, he has enjoyed his time in Detroit, so he very well could be trying to raise his trade value for the good of the team. Either way, Castellanos is pointing out something and that statement could easily influence some of the conversations about his game. We’ll see if this changes his worth in other teams’ eyes though and results in a deal.One thing is for sure though, if and when Castellanos leaves Detroit, he’s not going to miss Comerica.”I mean, they can move in center and right-center field,” he said. “There’s no reason I hit a ball 434 feet off (Nationals right-hander) Anibal Sanchez and it goes in the first row. That shouldn’t happen. But I’m not in charge of that either.” “This park is a joke,” he told reporters, via the Detroit News. “It’s to the point where how are we going to be compared to the rest of the people in the league in terms of power numbers, OPS, slugging and all that stuff when we got a yard out here that’s 420 feet straight across center field?”Castellanos was a top-10 prospect before he made his MLB debut in 2013, but he has never quite developed the power many evaluators thought he would. He was given a future 70-grade power by MLB Pipeline in 2013 which has been given to only a few players such as Miguel Sano with the Twins and Joey Gallo of the Rangers.

The 27-year-old seems to have an idea why, and he says opponents even point out part of the problem.”We’ll get on second base or third base and they’ll come up and be like, ‘Man, how do you guys do this?'” Castellanos said. “We play 81 games here, man. I don’t want to hear about the two you hit that are questionable.”To an extent Castellanos does have a point. He has 104 home runs in his career with 60 of those on the road. In his six-plus seasons with the Tigers at Comerica Park, he has hit a home run every 34.9 at-bats. In road games, he homers in every 26.4 at-bats.That is a difference, but it’s not a huge one. It probably comes out to about two home runs hit in an average per year (3,118 career at-bats at 26.4 ABs per home run = 118 career homers or 14 more in total over seven years).So how does this matter in the bigger picture? Castellanos, 27, is a free agent after the season, and it’s unlikely that he’ll re-sign with the Tigers. So Detroit is trying to trade him, and teams like the Cubs are interested. And if he wants to be traded, which he very well could, he might be trying to get better teams interested in him, leading to either a World Series chance this postseason or simply a chance to get with a team he could feel out and possibly consider re-signing with. Nicholas Castellanos is one of the Tigers’ two best trade chips, and he might be trying to help his value in an odd way.The Detroit outfielder hit a walkoff home run in Sunday’s 4-3 win over the Blue Jays, but he chose to vent his frustrations while speaking about the game.last_img read more
