Another listing secured in The Block

Written by in Property News on July 3, 2013

For The Block enthusiasts, you’ll be excited to learn that a second property has hit the market.  The apartment, renovated by childhood sweethearts Madi and Jarrod from Sydney, epitomises their design style of “natural, raw and rustic with a modern twist.”


Located at 401/142 Park St, South Melbourne, this property is sure to wow the crowds.  Listing agent Russell Cambridge from Biggin & Scott Richmond is thrilled with the opportunity to sell this property and believes it will achieve a great result for the young couple, “We are very confident that Madi and Jarrod will go very well.  Their apartment has all the same benefits s the top floor…a great outlook, view and heaps of light.  The home is presented in a very stylish, appealing and spacious way.  The feedback we’ve been receiving is very positive”.


The property boasts a fully equipped designer stone kitchen with walk in butler’s pantry and state of the art stainless steel appliances.  The judges were all praise when it came to the kitchen, with judge Shayna saying “It has a beautiful warm feeling to it, because of the flooring, and the colour palate they have chosen.”


The living/dining area resulted in a mixed reaction from the judges, but we think this room oozes style and class.  According to Jarrod, “I am happy with the layout we have. I think it works really well, having a dining and lounge room. But the judges weren’t happy with our room. We still got high scores and everything, but they were saying that they thought that we went backwards this week.”



For listing agent Russell Cambridge, the terrace area and view is a real selling point, “I love the terrace area off the living room…very spacious and sunny.  If I lived here this is where I would relax, enjoying the city lights.”

As well as a great opportunity to sell a stylish and well publicised property, Russell hopes to raise awareness for the Heart Kids charity, “we believe this is a great opportunity to give our wonderful charity Heart Kids exposure through the show.  We are co-branding ourselves with Heart Kids on most of our marketing.”
