Tess Daly and Vernon Kay sell £1.7m house as they ditch plan to demolish it and build their dream home


TESS Daly and Vernon Kay have dropped plans to demolish and rebuild their dream home – and are selling the £1.7m house instead.

The star couple and their daughters Phoebe and Amber live in a six-bedroom house in Buckinghamshire with their two Shetland ponies, Honey and Willow.

But they had also snapped up a house nearby for £1.5million that they’d planned to tear down and replace with a modern and “energy efficient” home.

Tess, 51, and Vernon, 46, were granted planning permission for the huge transformation project and had even hired expert firm Urban Curve Architecture to design a “bespoke, one-off house”.

According to MailOnline the impressive new pad would have featured a timber effect front door and windows in grey aluminium frames, and would have been four storeys, yet with the appearance of a two-storey home.

But their neighbours objected to the project, with one saying: ‘The basement extension will require significant ground works into the chalk hillside … require(ing) significant removal of existing trees and shrubbery . . . which screen the neighbouring properties”.

The neighbour also stated the build would affect wildlife, specifically badgers.

‘The Badger Protection Act of 1992 makes it illegal to “intentionally or recklessly damage or destroy a badger sett, or obstruct access to it”.

In light of the appeals Tess and Vernon decided to cancel their plans and sell up instead, making a tidy £200,000 profit when they sold the house for £1.7million.

The couple, who wed in 2003, already live in a stunning mansion with six-bedrooms, a swimming pool, and a gym.

They’ve shared glimpses of their home on Instagram.

The TV presenters have also shared several snaps of themselves in the grounds of their plush home and relaxing on their comfy-looking garden furniture with their pet pooch.
