Killing Heidi guitarist Jesse Hooper has put his Melbourne home of eight years on the market.

Jesse and his wife Anna plan to sell the 1950s-built West Footscray property for between $1.3million and $1.4million.

The Mascara hitmaker, 41, told Realestate.com.au the couple had significantly renovated the home since buying it.

Jesse said: ‘Before, the house was cute and quaint; now it is gorgeous and all modern.’

‘We kept some of the original features, including the fireplace and some floorboards. Everything else is new,’ he added.

Their extensive renovation work includes a second bathroom, an open-plan kitchen and an eye-catching flower mural.

Jesse said the home had been the Hooper family hub for some years now, with sister Ella, 39, who fronted Killing Heidi, making frequent visits to see his daughter.

The property is particularly attractive to buyers because it is in the heart of Melbourne’s western suburbs and close to all amenities.

Jesse and Ella rose to fame in the late 1990s and early 2000s as guitarist and singer respectively of the Australian rock band Killing Heidi.

In 1999, the band stormed the ARIA charts with their hit single Mascara from their debut album Reflector. 

The group scored hits with their follow-up songs Superman Supergirl and Weir, and won four ARIA Awards in 2000, including Album of the Year and Best Group.

After Killing Heidi split in 2006, the siblings formed an acoustic folk duo called The Verses.
