Producers for the hit renovation show spent $14.3million on the row of five homes in Hampton East, in Melbourne’s Bayside, 14km from the CBD.

Only one of the five properties purchased along the row of homes at numbers 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22 has two bedrooms. The other four boast three to four bedrooms.

The Block filmed its 2021 season in neighbouring Hampton, only two kilometres from the 2023 location.

One of the Block’s regulars, Denise Jacobs, said East Hampton was ‘taking off’ even if it was the ‘poor cousin’ to Hampton, which tends to be pricier.

The buyers agent, who sold her own home in Hampton to Nine for $1.59million for the 2021 season of The Block, described Charming Street as ‘great’.

‘It’s a happy little pocket and there are some lovely established homes,’ she said.

The prices buyers paid for the Hampton homes in 2021 were between $2.3million and $3million, so fans should expect to see similar prices for East Hampton.

Jacobs added that the 2023 season of The Block will be ‘easier’ for the producers than the current season.

The Block 2022 was being filmed in Gisborne, in country Victoria, a 40-minute drive from Melbourne, and is said to be one of the most ambitious seasons yet.
