  • The home was ‘barely standing’ when builder Julian Zullo decided to buy it
  • Mr Zullo spent countless man hours shovelling garbage out out the property  

A crumbling shack that was ‘barely standing’ has been transformed into a multi-million dollar home after undergoing a $1.3million makeover.

The dilapidated property, in one of the most exclusive streets in Brisbane, was once an eyesore, with rubbish filling each room and paint peeling from the walls. 

But builder Julian Zullo saw potential in the ‘hoarder house’ in Coorparoo.

And after countless man hours shovelling garbage out of the home it has now become a family’s dream.

‘It really was the worst house in the best street,’ owner Julian Zullo told Domain. 

‘A lot of people knew this place as the crazy hoarder house that a little old lady lived in for 60 years. 

‘And, everyone knew about her because of all the weeds and how dilapidated the home was and that deterred the rest from buying it. 

‘But I could see the potential. There was just so much character.’

He said it was ‘so rewarding’ to drive down the street and remember it for what it was and see it for what it is now.

It took a year of planning and another 12 months of building to transform the property.
