Bring a date to Wynnum’s ‘ensuite without walls’ house auction

first_imgMore than 100,000 people from Australia to America, Europe and Africa weighed into the ensuite without walls debate after a picture of the newly renovated house at 18 Alverna Close, Wynnum was tweeted online. The six-bedroom house is on a 2045sq m block.“Auctions are so serious, we want to make it look relaxed and welcoming. It’s more a community event, rather than just coming to see the house. “We’re going to be there for an hour, an hour and a half, and people can bring their kids, have a drink, something to eat, and hopefully it will sell. We want to make it real.”But the champagne won’t be for everyone.“We’ll be offering non-alcoholic champagne to the bidders,” Mr Lordi said. “We don’t want any drunk buyers.” The hype has also translated into more work for owner and local builder Troy Williams, who fully renovated his Wynnum house over two years.“I didn’t expect it to go quite like this, it’s been the best journey,” Mr Williamson said.“A lot of people have recognised me in the streets: ‘You’re the guy with the bathroom’.” MORE REAL ESTATE STORIES Troy Williamson at his newly renovated house in Wynnum where the master bedroom has an ensuite with no walls.
