The talented Three Birds team - who got together as their husbands once played for the Parramatta Eels - have secured the sale of their fifth residential renovation project.

It is a little home in Baulkham Hills that sold at $1.35 million earlier this month.

The Oakland Avenue house was bought by the team - Lana Taylor, Bonnie Hindmarsh and Erin Cayless - for $922,500 in May. 

After nine weeks, the former fibro suburban house was transformed into a cottage-style home with extension.

It was marketed by Jane Booty at Century 21 as a "lust-worthy home with unparalleled street appeal."

It sold to a young couple from Strathfield who have family nearby.

"The couple are as gorgeous as the house… it’s a perfect fit," Booty said.

The Three Birds Renovations have worked their makeover magic previously at Northmead, Castle Hill and Beecroft since kicking off their new career in mid-2014.

Lana Taylor, Bonnie Hindmarsh and Erin Cayless had long spent time on the NRL game day sidelines, exchanging tips about paint colours, carpet samples and new bathrooms while their husbands Jason, Nathan and Nathan ran around for the Parramatta Eels.

The trio are planning on renovating three homes a year in The Hills district.

The Baulkham Hills offering came with a new designer style kitchen and a bathroom, featuring the striking black freestanding bathtub from Caroma.

Outside they added a tiered deck, with new alfresco area overlooking the landscaped rear gardens.

The project was watched by their more than 90,000 dedicated followers on Facebook and Instagram. They also filmed their own digital show in partnership with realestate.com.au.

The fibro had been owned by the Coddington family, who tragically lost two sons — Tim and Sam — in a plane crash while on a surfing holiday in Manila in 2002.

Their mother approached Bonnie when she wanted to sell the home and asked them to purchase it and bring it back to life. 

It's back story had Bonnie Hindmarsh engaged to the seller's son, Sam who passed away on a surfing trip when he was in his 20s.
