The embattled Brighton home of The Block contestants Jimmy and Tam has finally sold.
The 1950s-style pad, which was at the centre of the show’s “conwoman” scandal, is understood to have been snapped up last week by a local family.
It’s believed to have sold for around the $4 million mark, industry sources confirmed.
The home was at the centre of an A Current Affair expose, which aired in December, which claimed the Queensland couple’s winning bidder, Emese Fajk, hadn’t paid up.
Fajk, 28, outlasted serial Block buyer Danny Wallis to place the final $4.256m bid on the property at its televised auction in November 2020, gifting Jimmy and Tam the biggest winnings in the show’s history — an incredible $1.066m.
In the interview, Jimmy told ACA: “We’ve pretty much been conned.”
High-profile agents Michael Townsend and Josh Stirling, from McGrath St Kilda, had been tasked with selling the home but refused to confirm or comment on the transaction.
Earlier this year Mr Townsend, the agency’s director, told the Herald Sun the four-bedroom property had sattracted interest from families, downsizers and investors.
“This is a highly desirable property, especially off the back of COVID-19, which has seen people moving for lifestyle reasons and thinking, ‘let’s get a pool and a house somewhere we can enjoy long term’,” he said at the time.
“It’s in a great location — Brighton is blue chip. Plus (The Block properties) are incredibly well built … and they’re great investments.”
