Jenny Heath and Dylan Adams began the 2022 season of The Block with the unique advantage of being the show’s first tradie couple, but they ended it in limbo.
The couple has the unfortunate distinction of being the only participants in this year’s season not to have sold the house they worked so hard to build.
In the show’s most controversial finale yet, winning pair Omar and Oz took home a record-breaking $1.68m profit while two couples failed to sell their houses at all.
Despite sharing the dubious honor with Jenny and Dylan, fellow contestants Sharon Johal and Ankur Dogra managed to offload their home on Friday in a shocking development that propelled them into second place.
The couple sold their home to the contentious “Lambo Guy” who arrived in the finale in a yellow Lamborghini and drove up the price for Omar and Oz’s home in a bidding war with serial Block buyer Danny Wallis.
He bought Sharon and Ankur’s home for $4.25m, which left the Block couple with a profit of $170,000.
Yet Jenny and Dylan are yet to find their winning bidder for the five bedroom, three bathroom home they built over 12 weeks.
The couple admitted it wasn’t the “outcome (they) hoped for” in a heartfelt post on Instagram, but they were determined to remain positive.
“Our beautiful Block home is still on the market, fingers crossed it gets snapped up soon,” they wrote earlier this week.
On the Domain website, the 5.3ha property is touted as “striking” and “panoramic” with the biggest acreage and veranda on this season of The Block.
“Created and crafted without compromise, the expansive dimensions of this unrivaled family residence seamlessly combines an innovative sustainable design, luxurious finishes and entertainment grandeur,” the listing reads.
The house boasts luxurious features such as a self-contained granny flat, wood fired pizza oven, wood fired hot tub, and a heated pool.
The Gisborne home is also completely off the grid with a seven-star energy rating.
Based on the suburb’s median sales price, the Domain website estimates the house would sell for $1.63m.
While it’s an automated estimate, the figure is well below the $4.08m reserve set for all couples on The Block and would relegate Jenny and Dylan to last place.
However, the agent’s indicative selling price for the home is between $4.08m and $4.4m.
Despite the setbacks, the couple took to social media to praise the TCC Real Estate team responsible for selling the 5.3ha home in Gisborne, Victoria.
“We want to say a huge thank you to our amazing team,” Jenny and Dylan wrote in an Instagram post.
They said the real estate agents were like a “second family” and thanked them for going “above and beyond” with the house.
“Our Block home is still on the market, we have no doubt they will sell it very soon,” the Block couple said.
Their home is the last Block house still unsold – and the only one built by traditions with hands-on experience.
