Jenny Heath and Dylan Adams began the 2022 season of The Block with the unique advantage of being the show’s first traditional couple, but ended it in limbo.
The couple have the unfortunate distinction of being the only entrants in this year’s season not to have sold the home they worked so hard to build.
In the show’s most controversial finale yet, winning couple Omar and Oz took home a record profit of 1.68 million dollars while two couples failed to sell their homes at all.
Despite sharing the dubious honor with Jenny and Dylan, contestants Sharon Johal and Ankur Dogra managed to ditch their home on Friday in a surprising development that propelled them into second place.
The couple sold their house to the controversial “Lambo Guy” who came last in a yellow Lamborghini and raised the price of Omar and Oz’s house in a bidding war with serial Block buyer Danny Wallis.
The bought Sharon and Ankur’s house for $4.25 million, leaving the Block couple with a profit of $170,000.
However, Jenny and Dylan have yet to find the winning bidder for the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home they built over 12 weeks.
The couple admitted it wasn’t the “result[they]hoped for” in a candid post on Instagram, but they were determined to remain positive.
“Our beautiful Block home is still on the market, fingers crossed it’s gone soon,” they wrote earlier this week.
On the Domain website, the 12-acre property is touted as “stunning” and “scenic” with the largest acreage and terrace this season for The Block.
“Created and designed without compromise, the expansive dimensions of this unparalleled family residence seamlessly blend innovative sustainable design, luxurious finishes, and entertaining grandeur,” the listing reads.
The home boasts luxury features including a free-standing granny flat, wood-fired pizza oven, wood-burning hot tub, and heated pool.
The Gisborne house is also completely off the grid with a seven star energy rating.
Based on the median sales price for the suburb, Domain’s website estimates the home would sell for $1.63 million.
While it’s an automatic estimate, the figure is well below the $4.08 million reserve set for all couples on The Block and would relegate Jenny and Dylan to last place.
However, the indicative sale price of the house according to the agent is between 4.08 and 4.4 million dollars.
Despite the setbacks, the couple took to social media to praise the TCC Real Estate team responsible for selling the 5.3-hectare 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 “beyond” with the house.
“Our Block house is still on the market, we have no doubt that it will sell very soon,” the Block couple said.
His house is the last Block House yet to be sold, and the only one built by tradesmen with practical experience.
