First-ever Big Brother winner Craig Phillips has revealed he is selling his family home.
Park Avenue in the wealthy area of Prescot, Merseyside, sits the house that the handyman built with his wife Laura.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline Property and This is Money, he explained the property was their “dream home”.
But their media work, which includes their success Mr & Mrs DIY YouTube Channelmeans they need more space.
Park Avenue in the wealthy area of Prescot, Merseyside, is the house that Craig built with his wife Laura.
Craig Phillips is also known for his various television appearances such as ITV’s 60 Minute Makeover.
They have an office and studio at home, where six staff members work. And they continue to grow, so they need more space.
Built by Craig and his team, the five-bedroom property is called Park Avenue and is located in Liverpool’s Eccleston Park, Prescot.
It spans 0.6 acres and spans 7,265 square feet, with parking for more than 15 cars.
It is on the market for £1.5 million and is being sold by Jackson-Stops estate agents.
The large living room has a modern kitchen with separate island and a large dining space
Master handyman Craig lives in a five-bedroom apartment block with his wife Laura and their children.
Craig and his wife Laura are behind the successful YouTube channel called Mr & Mrs DIY.
The main entrance includes several stairs leading to the second floor of the property
The unique property was built in 2019 and spans an impressive 7,265 square feet.
Craig who is also known for his television appearances as ITV’s 60 Minute Makeover, said her family had loved living there but were now considering a new project in the Midlands.
“Laura and I have loved living here, in our dream building, for four or five years,” he said.
“However, we are now aiming further afield, closer to the Midlands region.
“We are starting a new chapter in our lives with a little more space in the countryside. We will then be the center of the whole family and I have many friends in this neighborhood.
The property is on the market for £1.5 million and is being sold by Jackson-Stops estate agents.
The house has a space dedicated to relaxation with a pool table next to a bar
Outside in the rear garden there is room for plenty of seating as well as a hot tub.
People often refrain from taking on a new project after undertaking their first personal build due to stress.
But not Craig and his wife who are now looking for land.
Craig said: “You see some people go through periods of stress when they are building their own house.
“Even though I have a team of builders, it was still stressful because you have to juggle money. And things never go as planned, because things change organically.
“Trying to build your own house is difficult. But it’s also exciting. We looked at three or four plots, some are close to the river. We also looked at some large homes with lots that need work.
The property is also home to their media work, which includes their successful YouTube channel Mr & Mrs DIY.
The couple created a gym in the house, with various equipment and floor-to-ceiling mirrors.
The couple’s bedroom has a bathtub placed between the windows and next to the double bed.
There is a nice bar on site, with several bar stools as well as a lounge chair.
He explained that their options leave room for expansion. They now have children and a growing media business.
He said: “We work from home and want to build a new TV studio as we now have half a dozen staff working here at home. We have an office and a studio, but we have outgrown it. We need more space.
The offices and studio are intended for their media work with Mr and Mrs DIYtheir YouTube channel which has nearly 400 videos.
“When we built the house five years ago, we didn’t think about selling it, but we are entering a new chapter,” he concluded.
