Vice Ganda, who is moving into a new house, gave a tour of the 1,300-sqm. bare structure which is still under construction.
According to the comedian, he bought the property where his house currently sits around five to six years ago for his late grandfather.
While he initially wanted to sell the property after the death of his grandfather, he eventually decided to keep it and build a new house.
“Itong property na ‘to nabili ko siya five or six years ago. Binili ko ‘to para sa Lolo ko. ‘Yung namatay ang Lolo ko, sobra akong na-sad. Nawalan ako ng gana ipatayo siya. Tumengga siya ng ilang taon,” he shared.
He went on: “Pero maganda kasi ‘yung property tapos inadvise-an ako na ‘wag daw ibenta dahil sayang mag-aappreciate. Tsaka dahil gusto ko na rin lumipat ng bahay, pinatayuan ko siya.”
The It’s Showtime host said it took three years to finish the construction of his house which has an industrial design with elements of stones, metal, and glass.
He also revealed that he was supposed to move into his new house back in March. But due to the pandemic, he was forced to reschedule his transfer.
“In fairness, three years natapos na siyang gawin. Palipat na ako ng March tapos biglang nagkaroon ng aberya, mga pandemic ganyan. Nag-lockdown. So hindi ako nakalipat. ‘Yung mga gamit na inorder ko for delivery, hindi siya na-deliver,” he said.
He added: “Nag-GCQ na, ayos na dapat. Pinayagan nang lumipat, tapos i-dedeliver ‘yung gamit. Tapos biglang naghigpit na naman. Hindi natuloy. So ngayon, lumuluwag na ulit kaya unti-unti papalipat na kami.”
Vice also decided to put an elevator in house for his mom. “May elevator kasi siyempre ‘yung nanay ko pagpupunta dito, sasakit ‘yung tuhod. Hindi niya kakayaning umakyat kaya kailangan magpagawa ako ng elevator for her,” he said.
The new house has an entertainment room which he calls the den, a large dirty kitchen, a spa room, and an elevated swimming pool made out of glass with jacuzzi. It also has a recreational area which Vice intends to transform into a gym area for boyfriend Ion Perez or a party place in the future.
Meanwhile, Vice also has a grotto at the back of his house which he revealed was originally there when he bought the said property.
“Nung binili ko ‘tong property na ‘to, meron kasi siyang nakatayong bahay. Tapos meron din siyang grotto. Pero ‘yung bahay lang ‘yung tinear down. Siya lang ang tinibag at tinanggal, but the grotto remains kasi hindi daw maganda ‘yung sinisira ‘yung ganyang part,” he said.
