And it seems that all the hard work has paid off for the rope access technician. 

Richie gave the exterior of the home a facelift, transforming it from white to a light grey. He also landscaped the gardens and added a paved driveway.

He upgraded the backyard by installing a sleek wooden deck, paving part of the area and laying down green grass.

Inside, Richie knocked out the dated wooden kitchen and installed a modern-looking, black and white kitchen. He did the same with the old blue bathroom.

He also transformed the interiors by polishing the tired wooden floors, giving the home a fresh lick of paint and opting for a neutral colour scheme for the walls and furniture.

Reflecting on all the work that went into renovating and selling the home, Richie said it was the ‘end of an era’.

‘End of an era. Very happy to be finishing up this project during a crazy year,’ he told his Instagram followers.

‘My humble little base of operations, this house has delivered on some great memories and some wild stories,’ he added.

‘Bought after the GFC and in complete need of a rebuild, this project was a long but enjoyable one. What a great way to close out the year!’

The property, which sits on a 412-square-metre block, also has a carport and parking available for multiple vehicles.

The home, which is just a short drive from a shopping centre, has air conditioning and a spacious outdoor seating area, perfect for entertaining guests.

Richie was last seen on television in 2018, on Channel 10’s Bachelor in Paradise. 

He was previously The Bachelor in 2016, but his relationship with winning contestant Alex Nation only lasted a year.

Alex later came out as bisexual and started dating a woman.

Before starring on The Bachelor, he’d been one of the contestants on Sam Frost’s inaugural season of The Bachelorette in 2015.
