The Block Front Yard Reveals

They say first impressions matter and this week all team’s gave their best efforts, making a grand first impression to prospective buyers come auction day. After all this year’s teams have achieved in the past 11 weeks delivering a front yard and facade seems like the easiest part of rounding out your time on The Block. While the spaces may have been tiny compared to past weeks, each team managed to give prospective buyers a taste of the house’s interior style and maintain a street-view that is pleasing on the eye. How could you go past Hannah and Clint’s beautifully on trend blush pink front door or the striking differentiation that Ronnie and Georgia's contrasting monochrome facade gave against the backdrop of...

The Block Reveals - Studios

It’ s the final countdown to this year’s Block renovations going under the hammer at auction. After almost 12-weeks of non-stop renovating, delivering a space that included a studio, walk in robe, ensuite, a double garage and a single garage was sure to test even the calmest of contestants. Despite the magnitude of the space each team was able to deliver a studio that, in our opinion, added even greater value to these already grand homes. Here at Southbound, we loved seeing how each team interpreted the space for the families that will eventually call these houses home. From Ronnie and Georgia’s home office to Josh and Elyse’s studio apartment - the spaces delivered show just how versatile an addition these...

The Block Reveals - Backyards

They called her “Ten Tonne Tessie” and for Block couple Ronnie and Georgia she was meant to be their backyard jewel. Despite her grandeur, their pool wasn’t enough to give them the win in this week’s backyard reveals on The Block. It was Josh and Elyse’s backyard, which Neale Whittaker said would easily be suitable to feature in design magazines globally, that took home the $10,000 prize and - you know what - we can see why. Simple and elegant, it is a space we here at Southbound think, ticks all the boxes for a modern and luxury home in inner-Melbourne. Family friendly with enough flexibility to adapt as children grow, parents entertain or Mum or Dad soak up the...
