There is no Next Episode of Who's Been Sleeping in My House planned.
Tracking through the trail of title deeds and library records, Adam traces Ashcombe's history to a young, savvy entrepreneur, George Crocker, whose name is still recognised in Ballarat today. Indeed, the story of the house is inextricably linked to the dynasty of the Crockers, who called Ashcombe home for more than a hundred years. However, behind the Crocker's good fortune is a terrible double tragedy. But what is its connection to the mysterious dining room?
As soon as they saw it, Sue and James knew that the Victorian brick and limestone cottage in Fremantle was the house in which they wanted to raise their family.
But there's another, more unsettling story about the Fremantle house .....
Peter and Tina have enjoyed Oljato's quirks and charms for 27 years. But having never sighted the original documents, they've always wondered who masterminded such an unorthodox design; when exactly the house was built; and what the nameOljato means.
However, it was while renovating the staircase that the couple made a remarkable discovery – something that many owners of old houses only dream about. Sealed behind the wall they found a box of treasures – a small collection of documents and trinkets. Who did they belong to? And more intriguingly, why were they hidden in the wall?
Invercloy is a grand Federation-style home in Redcliffe, Western Australia where it stands out as a majestic mansion in a sea of suburbia.
There's no doubt the big, rambling house afforded some breathing room for the boisterous brothers, but Pauline is convinced that the house exudes something more. Her question: what could be behind Invercloy's spell that has worked such wonders on her family?
Like many towns in Tasmania, the people of Pontville are proud of their historic buildings – and particularly an impressive stone house called The Sheiling. The date on the gate gives a clue to its age, ‘Circa 1819', which would make the house one of the oldest buildings in Tasmania. It's quite a claim, but not everyone is convinced.
Doobawah is an impressive Queenslander – a tropical, wooden palace on stilts, with a labyrinth of doors and windows designed to catch every breath of breeze from Moreton Bay. Indeed, Doobawah comes from the local Indigenous language, meaning ‘vast expanse of water'.
Helen and Richard bought the home over a decade ago, and as their family has grown, so has their fascination for the house's 125-year-old charms. They began to search for any snippets of its past and what they found was intriguing – a series of photographs that document Doobawah's early beginnings. To their surprise, the house looked different – it was even grander, with impressive wings and balconies on either side. But the photos revealed an even greater shock – lots of people move house, but their whole house had moved!
Adam Ford's mission is therefore to investigate a house that has not only changed its appearance over the years, but also its location. Who built Doobawah? When was it moved and why? And what tantalising clues lay buried in the fuzzy grain of the old sepia photos?
About 500 kms east of Perth, on the fringe of the Western Desert, sits the outback town of Coolgardie. In the 1890s it exploded into life with the discovery of gold, and became a ghost town almost overnight when the gold dried up. Today only a few of the grand buildings from Coolgardie's heyday survive, and one of them is Peter Pan.
Mike and Lyn were so seduced by the sight of Nelson Grange, a handsome Georgian homestead in Bridgetown WA, they bought it without setting a foot inside.
The couple has now lived there for two years, and Nelson Grange hasn't disappointed. They are delighted by its seclusion and tranquillity, well away from the rat race. And in its way, Nelson Grange has brought them closer to their family and friends, who now stay for days when they come to visit.
But all may not be as it seems behind the facade of the house. Mike and Lyn have heard that Nelson Grange was the scene of a brutal murder. It's been said the original owner was speared and killed by an Aboriginal elder. Could it be true? Mike and Lyn really want Adam Ford to find out.
