“The Block” 2016
After many seasons of watching Channel Nine’s The Block, I was delighted to recently be invited to inspect the apartments at 164 Ingles Street in Port Melbourne.
As filming is still taking place and all the rooms have not been publicly revealed as yet, I am duty bound to keep the details of the apartments respectfully confidential. What I can say is that I was genuinely impressed by what I saw and the apartments certainly seem more generously sized in real life than on the TV screen. The deco features of the building have been celebrated and, for me, the crowning glory of the apartments is the top level common area. All I can say is “Wow!”.
It was terrific to talk to Sasha from The Block and chat about the challenge of being on camera, the mammoth effort it has been to produce what is a stunning apartment and, of course, “the wall”! Overall, all contestants should be proud of what they have toiled hard to deliver. I shall continue to watch – with keen interest – the remaining episodes of The Block and look forward to assisting any of my clients should they wish to purchase one of these boutique apartments.
