The Block's Sasha and Julia Sold Their Home to The Bachelor's Sam and Snez!
I was pretty excited to tune in to the first episode of The Block as meeting the contestants is always fun. There I was, wine in hand, being introduced to Victorian couple Julia and Sasha. Julia is a property stylist, and she was shown walking through a house she'd styled — hold the phone! It was a house I knew! Rewind. Replay. Yep, Julia had styled the Melbourne home bought by Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski back in January!
A little online digging revealed that not only did Julia style the Edwardian (including choosing that Tiffany-blue door), her and Sasha were the original owners. Two things: Firstly, small world, right? Secondly, we now have a pretty good reference for Julia and Sasha's styling that we're bound to see more of on The Block.
At the time Snez and Sam bought the property from Julia and Sasha, the house was freshly renovated but maintained the classic details of a heritage home, like high ceilings and bay windows, but had the benefits of a contemporary open-plan layout and modern features. Like those French doors! The Tiffany blue theme runs throughout the house but there are a lot of fresh white walls.
Sam and Snez laid out a cool $1.6 million for Sasha and Julia's three-bedroom home. Which Sasha and Julia no doubt used to start their next project! Scroll for a peek at the house, and Julia's styling!
