Everything he posted videos of, Mark branded #PRPRODUCT to indicate that he had received them free of charge.

The TOWIE hunk revealed the grand exterior of the house, which featured a lavish pillared doorway. 

He explained that he and his actress wife are just waiting for their sweeping driveway to be installed before the property will be complete and ready for them to move into.

In the clip, posted to the couple’s WrightyHome Instagram page, Mark showed off the gravelled driveway, explaining that they were waiting to put down the stylish blocks to complete the driveway.

Showing off the granite slabs from Marshalls that have already been installed as the driveway’s edging, he said: ‘The house is looking lovely. Driveway, last thing to do. It’s all being prepped now and so far the edging has gone in. Look at these granite slabs!’

The TV personality said that the edging will run all along the front of the house in a curved shape, with a path leading to the garden.

He went on to ask fans their opinion on the granite slabs they are planning to use for the entire driveway, explaining that they are yet to decide whether to use light and dark grey blocks, or just darker slabs.

He added: ‘So going back to it, these are the blocks we’re using for the driveway, across the whole drive, we’re still deciding at the moment, do we go for light and dark, light and dark, that kind of look or do we just go all dark with the granite edging up the side, if that makes sense.’

Mark and Michelle, who are estimated to have a net worth of £12million, have been documenting the construction process after purchasing the original property for £1.3million in October 2019.

Construction experts have estimated the demolition and rebuild of the home will cost around £3.5million.

Due to various lockdowns and Covid restrictions, construction has been stop-start after they demolished a farmhouse and began building a five-bedroom mansion complete with bar, gym, granny annexe and outdoor swimming pool.

The couple won planning approval for the colossal building project back in January 2020 – and it has been over two years while the couple waits to move in. 

They have been sharing frequent updates on the development to their ‘Wrighty home’ Instagram page, which includes the swimming pool.

Speaking of the project, the couple said: ‘Our garden means the world to us and we love the outdoors. We searched high and low to find the best landscape designers, after realising that there was only one company for us.

‘It’s funny how you can have a dream, tell the professionals and they make your dream bigger than you ever imagined.

‘Here is what the boys Cam and Matt Keightley have designed and created for us. Absolutely blown away and cannot wait to see it come to life.’

They have shared stunning before and after shots with their fans online which show the original farmhouse as it stands and the CGI plans of their home.

The traditional wood-beamed farmhouse will be transformed into a beautiful white home complete with pillars out front and vast windows, in a design some have likened to the white house.

‘Here’s the lovely house that we purchased back in 2019 vs what we are hoping to create,’ they wrote in a social media post.

‘It’s been a long process so far and still a long way to go but sooner or later we will have the house we could have only ever dreamed of.’

The couple have been together since 2012, and were married in 2015. They regularly share snaps of their life together with fans on social media.
