Billie Shepherd updates on delayed £1.4m family mansion with Kardashian-inspired pantry

Five-and-a-half months pregnant Billie and husband Greg Shepherd began to renovate their house in January 2021 but it has been delayed for some time for several reasons.

The couple – who are parents to Nelly, eight, and five year old Arthur – are currently living in their first-family home until their construction masterpiece is complete, and Billie reveals that when they move out, her mum Suzie will move in.

While the family wait to move into their mansion after a long wait, Billie – who is expecting her third child with Greg – gives OK! an update on how it's going as she hints she can't wait any longer.

“It’s been a much longer process than we ever could have imagined,” admits Billie.

“I would never do that again. I said if the baby isn’t a goal to get it finished I don’t know what is!”

Billie revealed that the new renovations include a kitchen/dining area with a huge island for the family to sit around, glass cabinets, a large dining table, L-shaped sofa and giant TV.

But it’s the Khloe Kardashian-style pantry that excites Billie the most. She says: “I watch The Kardashians – I absolutely love it.

“I’d love to meet them. My sister’s met Kim. Khloe Kardashian’s pantry is my dream – mine’s not as big as hers obviously, but I’ve definitely taken inspo from her.”

While it was reported there were planning rows with their new neighbours, Billie previously set the record straight with OK! in March.

Billie and Greg, 37, declared there is no toxicity between them and their neighbours, telling us: "Obviously, in the beginning, going back to when we got the planning permission, we had a few issues, which we tackled and we all came to an agreement.

Greg added: "It’s absolute rubbish that the neighbours have been rowing."

Billie then said: "We want to set the record straight. There have been no complaints. There has been a lot of work being done for a long time, so we could have had a lot of trouble, but we haven’t."

She even revealed that their neighbours have come around for cups of tea, explaining further: "A couple of them have popped around to introduce themselves. So, despite what the reports have said, it’s all been fine."

Billie went on to say they are "so near but so far" from moving into the house.

She said six months ago: "We’re so near but so far. All of the plastering is happening as we speak, so that will transform the inside of the house.

"It’s going to start to feel very real. All the bathrooms are going in as well as the kitchen. We’re really getting there."

Billie added: "We’re hoping to be in there in the next few months. We can see the end, finally!"
