The Australian soap opera Neighbours is finally coming to an end, and two fans who purchased a home on the area where it was filmed have expressed their regret.
Living on Pin Oak Court, which is referred to as Ramsay Street in the drama, would “always be a novelty,” according to Hayley Jones and her partner Miles Shackley.
The Liverpool-born pair relocated to Australia in 2014 with the goal of eventually settling on Ramsay Street.
The soap has had a home in Melbourne since its inception in 1985.
I’ve always wanted to own a home on Ramsey Street, Ms. Jones remarked.
“So when I learned that one was approaching, we reasoned, “Why not? We should try it.”
Although Mr. Shackley said he like the garden more, Ms. Jones, who resides in the property featured as the Kennedy family home in the program, said it “was absolutely a pro” when they were seeking to buy.
The couple claimed it took some time to persuade people they had actually relocated to Ramsey Street when they moved into the cul-de-sac in March 2020.
The statement, “It does seem like the house because honestly it truly is where they film neighbors,” was made back and forth often, according to Mr. Shackley.
It will always be somewhat unique.
Local limitations caused production to temporarily cease when the couple moved in during the onset of the coronavirus epidemic, but when crews resumed work, the couple said they appreciated seeing the actors out and about.
It’s been incredibly thrilling, said Mr. Shackley, who even appeared as an extra in the program.
He said, “I was a dude in the background with a cup of coffee in two episodes.
To be honest, it wasn’t that difficult because that’s basically what I do in real life—sit down, drink a cup of coffee, and attempt to get some work done.
The pair stated that now that filming is over, they would try to restore the interior of the home but will leave the outside alone because “we purchased it for this.”
“It’s a destination for tourists. Even now, people adore it “Shackley stated.
“People continue to travel especially to see it. When it’s not a popular tourist destination, it’s still a good street with nice neighbors and a nice neighborhood.”
“Our neighbors have become into wonderful friends,” Ms. Jones continued.
