Selling Houses Australia

Episode Guide

North Rocks

Series 4 · Episode 1

This house’s towering, overpowering problem is so extreme that many prospective buyers turn around before even getting out of the car. Bang in the middle of the front yard stands an enormous electricity pylon. There’s no fixing or removing this “feature” but more people might be prepared to live with it if the rest of the house was exceptional. Unfortunately the only thing exceptional about this house is its outdated,1980s décor (complete with purple loo!), making this property completely un-saleable in its present state. George and Lynda Antonjevic have been living at their North Rocks home in Sydney for 13 years with son, Alex and daughter Monique. They’re selling up because the massive house and extensive grounds are simply too much for them to maintain. The plan is to downsize and the couple have already purchased a townhouse off the plan. At the time, 18 months ago, they never imagined their family home wouldn’t sell. Now the townhouse is almost complete and in 2-3 weeks the bridging loan will kick in putting enormous strain on their finances and making a sale a matter of urgency.

Does anyone know what was below the new "entrance room/hall" ? There was one room below and one above, but the one below was never shown. What was in it?

Thanks for that. We are currently looking at a property that has power lines running directly behind it. I was a little concerned
