Award-winning builder adds $2m to Blairgowrie home in six years

A 1970s fibro beach shack bought for $362,000 about six years ago has gained more than $2m after a lavish makeover.

Hansen Living boss Scott Hansen and his interior designer wife Kirsten bought 34 Ridley Street, Blairgowrie, in 2015 and have spent the intervening years “pulling it back to the frames”.

The award-winning builder said he had been hoping it might edge past the $2m mark, but despite a “perfect storm” of COVID-19 driving Victorians to buy a second home within the state, as international and even interstate holidays prove tricky, he did not expect it to reach the sale price of $2.541m at its Sunday afternoon auction.
