Meet the 2020 Block Homes

Five period homes from the 1910s, 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s, have been rescued from demolishment, uprooted and transported to a 2761-square metre block of land in the heart of sunny and affluent Brighton bayside suburb of  Melbourne. There they wait to be brought back to life by five eager new couples. 

We have a sneak peek of The Block homes in their original locations before being relocated to Brighton!

Block architect Julian Brenchley has designed the renovations, which maintain the five old period houses and include new two-storey extensions at the rear. Each house now has at least four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a huge kitchen, dining and living area, plus a double garage with a studio.

“This time around we looked at preserving some of the period aspects of each house,” Julian says. “It’s been really interesting to explore five different renovations of five houses because in the past they were all roughly the same design.”

And as if homes this close to the beach don’t already sound good enough, for the first time on The Block each one will also have its own swimming pool.
