‘Yeah, I’m just checking on YouTube how to restore an 1870s building,’ he laughed. 

Of his plans for the property, Andy joked: ‘I’m just going to start like a Berlin-esque club – no shirts allowed, electronic dance music.’ 

According to The Herald Sun, Andy’s fixer-upper property is located in the affluent Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn and sits on 2000sqm lot and looks out to the Yarra River.
