'Love It or List It': John and Melissa reject Hilary Farr's renovation to buy new house with trail, fans call it dumb
In the latest episode of 'Love It or List It', Hilary Farr's design magic fails to impress couple John and Melissa as they list the property.
The newest 'Love It or List It' episode ended on a surprising note with John and Melissa picking a new house over their now-renovated old one. Hilary Farr did a fabulous job of transforming a vanilla space into something that's straight out of a design magazine. Well-balanced and lit, the couple's new house is anyone's dream. However, it was strange when they decided on shelling money on location rather than their old home, which is now good as new. In a surprise turn, David Visentin walked away with the prize.
Fans thought it was a tad unfair because Farr did pull off a solid makeover, gave them their house of dreams, more than what they asked for. The revamped house now features a sunroom, a dream kitchen and a secret door, which doubles up as a bookshelf. Wow! what else would one want? The house sports a classy-modern look and appears fresher than before with wall paints and upholstery all toned down to beiges and creams.
Here's what they said:
"Just watched the new Love It or List It. Hilary redid the whole house beautifully but the couple left for a house that completely needed work everywhere. Geez people are dumb. #LoveItOrListIt #TeamLoveIt,'' expressed a fan, while another tweeted: "Well called that one wrong.. lol
The couple's decision to pick a new house over the renovated one is a personal one, but viewers say it was a silly call especially because buying the new one would mean more money, considering they were already over budget. However, they stuck to their decision because both of them thought having a play area and a trail would be a good idea. Guess, location trumps renovation?
