Selling Houses Australia

This house makes Shaynna and Charlie walk out, but can Andrew convince them to stay?

If there’s one thing the Selling Houses Australia team know, it’s how to reinvent a house. But this week’s house isn’t going to be so easy.

In fact it’s so bad, Shaynna and Charlie are ready to call time on the renovation before it has even started thanks to the quirky floor plan, the mysteriously locked room and large unkept garden.

The more the team look through this property, the more impossible their mission seems with Andrew calling it 'the ugliest house' he's come across.

But owner Narelle needs to sell her 4-bedroom home in the coastal town of Moreton Bay to be closer to her daughter and grandchildren who live on the Gold Coast.

Narelle has lived in her house for 35 years and while the unusual floorplan is setting off alarm bells for Andrew and Shaynna, Narelle and her adult son, Shane - who lives with her - are used to it.

Shane has even transformed one of the rooms into a whisky room where he displays his impressive prized collection of expensive whisky.

But there’s no time for a drink for the Selling Houses Team (although they may need one!).

The property has been on the market for five months - with Narelle listing her home at the negotiable price of $369,000, but so far, nothing.

It’s no surprise to Andrew and Shaynna.

In fact, Shaynna and Charlie think it would be better for Narelle to move in with Andrew on the Gold Coast and rent her home out – saving everyone a lot of reno headaches.

Her teeny tiny budget doesn’t give the Blaze and the Bone much to work with either, so it’s no wonder they’re looking for a quick exit.

But, after a bit of persuasion from Andrew, the team get stuck into it.

And in true Selling Houses style tackle the challenging layout and get the job done. This one requires so much work that even Andrew puts his work boots on and helps out. 

But will the potential buyers see past the secret room, the whisky at every turn and an upstairs kitchen with limited family living space?
