The Block 2018 | Terrace week Reveal

And that’s a wrap – well almost…

The teams have revealed the last of their spaces with some dazzling terraces.

From luscious greenery, to water features, cooking appliances and entertainment areas – there were some true standouts.

So who really dazzled with the final piece of their puzzle?

Style highlights …

Let’s start with the winners, Jess and Norm, who finally took out the win with a beautiful and luxurious terrace. Fotojet (3)

There was so much to love – the size alone makes it the perfect entertainer’s space, which is perfect for the quintessential St Kilda buyer.

I love the outdoor dinning space, particularly the custom table, which is perfectly covered (because let’s face it you just never know with Melbourne weather) as well as the gorgeous bar area and it’s million dollar views.

And of course it would be a terrace with the perfect BBQ – their marble-topped BBQ is absolutely stunning and the perfect element for entertaining.

The outdoor lounge area is placed perfectly, and the water feature adds a lovely design element as well as a soothing sound, which gives a space a sense of calm and serenity.

For an extra special feature, the grassed area at the side was a genius touch, adding the green luscious element as well as being suitable for buyers who have animals.

Coming in second with a beautiful modern terrace were Bianca and Carla.

With the assistance of landscape extraordinaire and Block favourite Dave Franklin, the girls created a gorgeous space that complements their kitchen perfectly to have an all-round entertainment area.

I absolutely loved the custom-made five-metre long table made from recycled timber with the BBQ  at the top end – perfect for any gathering.

The fifty year-old Zycads are absolutely stunning and give the space that luscious green element.

One of my favourite aspects about this space is the gorgeous fireplace, which utilised the original chimney from the old Gatwick.

Not only does having a piece of the heritage add richness to the property, but it helps utilize this gorgeous space in any weather condition – and let’s be honest, in Melbourne that’s a must.

Hayden Sara

I also have to say I absolutely loved the sleek and stylish elements of Hayden and Sara’s terrace.

The highlight no doubt is the custom outdoor kitchen with that absolutely stunning teppanyaki BBQ, which is almost a piece of art, along with those beautiful twin tubular exhaust fans.

I love the wrap-around bar – so chic and very much on the mark for a St Kilda apartment.

Overall the terrace has a very modern and sleek feel, creating a great space for a buyer to enjoy hosting guests,  which really suits the area.

Still ahead…

Just when you thought it was all over – The Block decided to shake things up with a challenge apartment.

No doubt there will plenty of style and drama still to come …
