The underdogs when they started in The Block All Stars, Phil & Amity have proven themselves to be real contenders to Win Wednesday’s finale (The Auction is actually on Tuesday). The couple were on the original series of The Block 10 years ago.
After walking through the four finished houses in person, there are a few key reasons why I think Phil and Amity’s heritage cottage will fetch the most at auction.
- Firstly, there is the feature which sets their house apart from the other three – the mezzanine level above the kitchen.
- The second level adds an open feeling to the back of the house and creates a great retreat area for studying, crafting, storage and could even be used to sleep extra guests. I’m surprised the other teams didn’t think of building up considering they oversaw the entire build of the back of their houses.
- Phil and Amity also made the smart move of making their laundry area a second bathroom, which will come in handy for entertaining or when family and friends come to stay.
- The other great thing Phil and Amity have done is keep their style, colours and appliances neutral, or Hamptons beach chic as the judges have called it. While some of their rooms might not pop like the other houses, the neutral palate allows potential buyers the opportunity to put their own style stamp on the house.
