The Gentile’s are your typical close-knit Italian family. They all live in the Melbourne suburb of Reservoir and each week gather for dinner at the old family home. Charlie built the sprawling 4-bedder with his own hands and it was a perfect place to raise the kids. However now they’ve flown the nest and he and wife Sylvia want to sell up and use the money to fund their retirement. Tragically, they can’t afford to buy in their beloved suburb, but a good sales price will mean they can still buy close to family. The trouble is, the house has the street appeal of a loading dock and an interior straight from the 70’s making it a tough challenge!
