The Block TV Show’s Very Own Port Melbourne House Showcase

Melbourne / 12 Mar 2017

The popular hit TV show, The Block 2016, was filmed on location at a Soap Factory building in Port Melbourne. Port Melbourne used to be known as being run down and an undesirable place to live, however following the Block, the average price of each of the renovated apartments was well over 2million dollars, the highest selling apartment maxed at just under AUD 3million. But why wasn’t Port Melbourne ‘spotted’ earlier? Its prime location is only a bounce from the CBD, its close to the waterfront, which has been greatly ‘dolled up’ following recent refurbishments related to the Docklands developments. Port Melbourne is hip, cool, modern and fresh. We hope you enjoy the below collection of houses for sale in the area, some renovated, some offering potential for DIY renovations.
