Selling Houses Australia

It’s the biggest renovation so far, but will this multi-million property sell for the right price?

With season 13 of Selling Houses Australia wrapping up on Wednesday night, we’ve saved the best until last!

When it comes to big, beautiful houses, it doesn’t get much bigger or better than the team’s final renovation in The Gap, Queensland.

This home, owned by Sandie and Tony, is more of a tropical retreat than a home. The 10-acre property has a grand home with five-bedroom, three-bathroom as well as a resort-style pool and multiple living spaces.

They’ve lived here for the past 17 years after building the property in 2003. Now that their three sons have all left home, the pair are wondering what to do with themselves in this big empty nest.

While they have 14 animals – including alpacas, dogs, cats and chickens – to keep them company, they do need to downsize.

But there's a big problem. It's a shrine to the 1990s.

And that's not all. This huge colonial-esque property has more than one challenge for the Selling Houses Australia team to solve.

While the home is outdated, it's outdated on a large scale. So anything the team does to this place is going to be big and require some clever thinking. And let's just say Shaynna and Charlie aren't impressed...

Apart from the dated décor a house of this size and character is unique and only appeals to a particular buyer, so Andrew definitely has some research to do.

With an asking price of $3 million, it’s little wonder this home has been on the market for over a year.

So, to attract the right buyer there needs to be some big changes. This home is going to require a kitchen and bathroom makeover – the first house to have both done this season.

And while the outdoor area has been well-maintained there’s no connection to the indoors. So Shaynna and Charlie are going to have to work together to create a seamless flow from the indoors to the outdoors.

Luckily, Charlie always looks on the lighter side of life, because this huge renovation is going to require some positive thinking and a lot of good laughs!

So will the Selling Houses Australia team’s renovation be enough to secure the big ticket price this couple are after? There's only one way to find out!
