Former Big Brother star Krystal Forscutt shows off her stunning South Coast holiday home
Former Big Brother star Krystal (née Forscutt) has a lot to celebrate.
The 33-year-old and her husband, property developer Neil Hipwell, have spent the majority of the year building their ‘dream’ holiday home in Gerringong, New South Wales.
Now, just a few days ahead of Christmas, she’s taken to Instagram to share picturesque views from their new $1.7 million holiday pad.
Worthwhile view: Krystal Forscutt’s new pad may still need some finishing touches, but it certainly comes with pristine water views
The couple, who share three children – Husky, 3 months, daughter Nakoda, one, Sunny, five – purchased a huge plot of land overlooking Werri Beach for $1.7million back in May 2019, and have since spent almost $400,000 on construction.
Back in June, Krystal described the build as ‘organised chaos’ after she visited the site.
And it appears the chaos has continued, as she also told fans trying to get the home sorted before Christmas and her son’s birthday was proving to be a struggle.
‘Trying to finish a house, l get ready for Christmas and it’s also Sunny’s b’day tomorrow… Life is just crazy [at the moment].’
Grand plans! The couple were first granted a permit for the $262,797 valued build and a $24,739 swimming pool and spa in November, six months after buying the plot of land
‘Feeling very unproductive everything takes 10 x longer with a baby.’
The couple have had a busy few months – shortly after welcoming their newest addition in June, they were granted permits for the $262,797 valued build and a $24,739 swimming pool and spa.
During a previous trip to the gorgeous location, Krystal shared footage from their home, boasting about how it is a dream come true for the little family.
And in January this year, they were granted a permit for an extension valued at $96,510.
Gerringong is a tiny town located just minutes south of Kiama in the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Krystal grew up in Batemans Bay, further down the coast.
Krystal’s husband Neil is managing the project himself through his successful property design and construction company, Futureflip.
Exciting times! Krystal described the build as ‘organised chaos’ after she visited the site back in June this year
