Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are renovating their luxurious house, and they’re inviting us along for the adventure.
Mark, 36, is the delighted owner of an Essex property with wife Michelle, 36, and the couple aren’t afraid to flaunt it online.
The pair routinely updates admirers on the progress of their property, from getting grass to grow on the yard to putting down really massive plant pots that appear to be the size of our own houses.
After initially debating on the path to take with their sitting area, Mark has disclosed that the pair has decided on a big modification.
Mark released a video clip of their sitting room on Instagram, which views out into the dining room and the garden beyond, and is essentially open plan even though it appears cosier and more concealed.
‘Do we have doors here or not?’ Mark asked his followers.
‘I think it looks better when you walk in and see all the way through, but Michelle’s point of view is that when you’re on the couch it’s always more homely if you shut yourself in a little bit.’
He did not, however, wait for his fans’ feedback, as the camera then cuts to show craftsmen installing stylish doors made of black steel and with enormous, gleaming panes of glass.
Mark was clearly happy with the completed outcome, as he laughed: ‘Oh, I don’t mind it. I like it!’
He added: ‘I think the missus, as always, was right on this one. That has literally changed the game.’
Mark finished by giving the full effect of the new doors, walking from his sitting room into the dining room, with the sweeping garden and countryside visible below.
The TV stars have been working on their new home for over 18 months, having built the countryside mansion from scratch.
They previously had a pool installed, which was the envy of all of us when the recent September heatwave sizzled the UK for a whole week.
Mark shared a sweet snap of him making the most of their one instalment with a post on Instagram, showing him splashing about with his toddler nephew before relaxing on a lilo.
