Selling Houses Australia

North Maclean, QLD - Meet the homeowner

In the second episode of the new series, the Selling Houses Australia team made over Kelly Anderson's five-acre property, which was looking tired, downtrodden and ravaged by dogs.

Kelly is a train guard, single mother to three adult girls and eight loveable but boisterous dogs. Kelly's trying to sell her shabby '70s steel frame kit home, which sits on a five-acres of property 40km south of Brisbane.

The house has more or less gone to the dogs, given all eight of them are allowed inside, with shredded curtains and rooms entirely dedicated to the pooches.

The property was on and off the market for years and hasn’t shifted despite having plenty going for it.

The turn-offs were clearly deal breakers and the unappealing, worn out interiors looked daunting. The several outbuildings, including kennels, needed dismantling much to Kelly's dismay, who built or installed most of them herself.

The Selling Houses Australia team wanted to help her sell the place so she and her menagerie could downsize to Bribie Island.

After they finished working their magic - with a whole heap of help from Kelly's daughters and sister - Kelly was left with a home that she loved, "20 years living here and this is my dream now. My dream home and I’m selling it."

But, she didn't change her mind and, with a successful sale under her belt, will soon be heading off to Bribie Island to live a peaceful life by the sea.

The new series of Selling Houses Australia continues Wednesdays at 8.30pm on Lifestyle.
