The house that was the backdrop for the iconic Australian sitcom Kath & Kim is being demolished.
The owner Jo Kelly is renovating the property, which is located 35 kms south-east of Melbourne in Patterson Lakes, as she prepares to rebuild a new family home.
Jo told Seven News on Monday: ‘We are rebuilding a home that we are going to live in. It will be extremely different.’

‘It won’t have any of the same brick work, curtains or kitchen that was in the original house,’ she said.
During the series, the property’s private pier was blocked by a high fence to give the show a more suburban feel. It has since been torn down.
It comes after it was revealed that the beloved Australian sitcom could be getting a reboot 20 years after it first hit screens.

The Melbourne home that was used as the central location for the series has been visited by crew members in recent weeks, neighbours say.
‘It was unimaginable neighbours could keep TV’s biggest secret under wraps much longer,’ a source told the magazine.

An official announcement will be made later this month, Woman’s Day reports.
