Alarge Mount Gambier home was recently featured on the hit television show ‘Selling Houses Australia.’
The property was on the market for approximately 12 months before it was sold last year by Ray White Mount Gambier principal Tahlia Gabrielli for $800,000.
The home is located on Tanglewood Crescent in Mount Gambier’s Conroe Heights estate on a double allotment spanning over 3000 square metres and Selling Houses Australia Presenter Andrew Winter said it was the largest suburban home they had renovated.
Ms Gabrielli said she was approached by Selling Houses Australia because some of her properties at the time ticked boxes regarding what they were looking for.
“They looked at a few and in the end my property was picked to proceed with the show,” she said.
“That was probably one of the largest houses I have ever sold and it would be one of the biggest ones in Mount Gambier, that would be a fair statement to say.”
Mount Gambier locals and buyers went through the house before any changes were made and gave their honest feedback about the property, which was passed on to former owners Tony and Wendy.
“For the majority of people, the house was just too big,” Ms Gabrielli said.
The house was dated and received a makeover from interior designer Wendy Moore and landscaper Dennis Scott, who stripped it back, brought it more up-to-date and made it more appealing to potential buyers.
Ms Moore and Ms Scott focused on renovating key areas of the home, including the open-plan living areas, main bedroom, landscaping and the outdoor entertaining area.
“It was a house that was built to never be sold, they had built it to be there forever, but life and circumstances change,” Ms Gabrielli said.
“It was an amazing quality built house, very grand, very expansive and elaborate.”
The home eventually found its perfect match and a local family purchased the home, who Ms Gabrielli said would fill the home with their children, laughter and good times.
“It was an amazing experience and I got to meet so many amazing people which is really good,” Ms Gabrielli said.
“I’m lucky I had clients that were successful and that we could do it all together. It was a great journey and experience for us all to share.”
