Ana and Mason Sithole are getting a divorce and need to sell quickly so that they can move on with their lives. The team needs to get their run down Bela-Bela home show ready fast!
VJGT visits Ana* (Mamagana) & Masoni Sithole in the resort town of Bela-Bela. The Sithole’s are going through a divorce and need to sell their house to divide their assets. The Sithole’s house consist of three bedrooms two bedrooms an open plan kitchen and living area and a large garden, but the current state of the house has attracted offers way below the asking price.
Henck enlists the help of Re/Max Bushveld’s Loua Boshoff to get the ball rolling. The home has suffered some serious neglect including ceilings that have been badly repaired using tape, and the house is seriously lacking curb appeal as the drought has destroyed the garden and there is no driveway.
Kevin commits to fixing the ceilings, updating the paint colour and finishing the house with proper cornicing and skirting. He also suggests that a crush stone driveway is installed to give the facade a finished look. Henck and Loua set out to paint the rust proofed burglar gates in a fresh coat of chrome paint. Lara creates a sophisticated design using Ana’s love for minimalistic colour and surrounding nature as inspiration. Kyle brings his A game and replants the front of the garden with plants that will flourish in Limpopo’s extreme climate.
The show is filled with big promises and a visit to the elephant sanctuary, but a quick home renovation almost turns in to a disaster when there is confusion between Kyle and Kevin over who was supposed to install the new crush gravel driveway and Lara delays the reveal as she forces the Sedgars truck to make a detour to pick up a couch in Vereeniging that was not available at the Sedgars warehouse.
Kyle is forced to use his staff to install the driveway and enlists Henck to help him plant. Lara’s furniture is nowhere in sight so she takes Ana off-site to teach her a handy design tip on how to turn an ordinary PVC pipe in to a flashy closet organiser for her favourite obsession, her shoes.
The furniture arrives five hours late and the team works into the late hours to get the house show ready. The finished product is a house that suddenly owns its place in the street, with an inviting driveway and a beautiful landscaped garden. Lara’s interior is minimalist in colour, but has an understated flash in its use of leather and glass finishes and a subtle dash of colour that even Ana can’t resist.
The owners are impressed and the potential buyers even more so as the property receives an offer at the listed price the very next day.
