A Place in the Sun buyer dissolves into tears as she learns 'upsetting' truth behind dream propertyJuly 9, 2021
AN A Place in the Sun buyer dissolved into tears after she learned the 'upsetting' truth behind her dream property.
Thursday's episode of the Channel 4 show saw presenter Jean Johansson meet Paul and Bev, who wanted to find their perfect home in Torrevieja, Spain.
The couple had a budget of £100,000 and wanted somewhere with space for guests and a music studio.
The first three properties Jean showed them didn't tick all their boxes, but the couple loved property four, with Paul saying it was: "practically perfect in every way".
The thee-bedroom townhouse was slightly over their budget at £104,000 but had two bathrooms, balconies at the front and rear as well as a covered terrace.
To make things even more impressive for the music-loving duo, the communal pool was shaped like a guitar.
Paul added: "It's a lovely, lovely house. I'd call it a Mary Poppins house it is practically perfect in every way. It's really good."
Jean replied: "Call me Mary Poppins! Is it a place where you could see yourself living?"
Paul said it was a "big possibility" before asking about a housing development across the road.
He said: "We do have one concern. It's only the land they will be building on, thirty properties could take, I don't know how long."
Jean replied: "I wish I could give some guarantees on this land but I just can't. It's unpredictable."
Her response prompted Bev to start crying, with Jean immediately wrapping an arm around her to console her.
Between her tears, Bev managed to say: "I'm really upset".
Jean replied: "You just really like this house don't you?"
At the end of the episode, the couple revealed property four was still at the forefront of their minds, and had hired a Spanish solicitor to try and find out more about the building site across from the property.
However, they were unable to gain any further information, so decided to take a chance and make an offer, which was accepted.
A Place in the Sun airs weekdays at 3pm on Channel 4.
