House Hunters International • S34E05 : Beach Life in Melbourne, Australia
Miranda and Bart moved to London from The Netherlands with a plan to return home in just a couple of years. But that was twelve years ago and now, caught up in the hectic pressures of job and career, they realize they have little time to enjoy their two young daughters, or each other. They revisit their plan to move back to The Netherlands until Bart is offered a position with a firm in Melbourne, Australia. After touring the city, they decide to relocate and soon begin the process of finding their new home. Real Estate Agent Donna Morsman steers them away from Melbourne center in favor of shore-line suburban properties that lie along Melbourne's Port Philip Bay. Their selection is beautifully challenging. One house is a contemporary custom design right by the beach. Another has a quaint village charm, while another has a tropical inside outside design where rooms open to the outdoors. In the end, their decision is carefully tuned to which property best for the children; as House Hunters International finds this young family a new home and a new way of life in Melbourne, Australia.
