2021 season is set to look like Ramsay St. meets The Block…
Nine has now confirmed Bronte Court, Hampton as site for The Block 2021, as first revealed by TV Tonight.
Nine has reportedly purchased 5 properties in the picturesque suburban cul-de-sac. One of the homes belonged to buyer’s advocate and The Block auction regular Nicole Jacobs.
Domain reports MicJoy Pty Ltd purchased Ms Jacobs’ property, renovated last year by Block architect Julian Brenchley, in June for $3,025,000. It claims other homes will sell to MicJoy over coming months, though none have yet settled, public title records show.
It’s rare for producers to confirm the location this far, but sources suggest Nine is looking to get on the front foot, and get the Council on side.
“An idea of how to make the show that we’ve always dreamed of, but have never been able to find a property that’s suitable, that fits the build, doing it the way that we wanted to do it,” producer Julian Cress said previously.
“We’re really excited about next year, because we have found a property that actually meets that brief that we’ve set ourselves, it’s something that we’ve never done before and we’re very excited about it.”
