Natalie Fagan and Ashlee McKee from Belle Property Daylesford, will drive the sales campaign of house number one for Channel 9’s  real estate program The Block.

The latest season comes with a fresh take on the show’s theme, as it embraces the tree-change lifestyle that has risen in popularity thanks to the pandemic.

In line with the tree-change theme, each contestant group is renovating a property located in Victoria’s regional town of Gisborne to ultimately create what was described to be a “luxurious country dream home”.

Sustainability is a central feature among the five competing properties, with all the homes off-grid and graded with a seven-star energy rating. The homes will also be equipped with a 1 million-litre water tank, geothermal heating and cooling, solar power and wastewater recycling.

Ms Fagan and Ms McKee said they were “delighted to be chosen” to represent Tom and Sarah-Jane who have House 1 in the show. “We can’t wait to bring as many quality buyers to House 1 for Tom and Sarah-Jane as possible,” they said.

They added that their debut on the reality television series would give them the opportunity to present their region to a wider audience.

“We are so proud of where we live and work and it’s a great opportunity to showcase the Macedon/Gisborne region, which offers the perfect lifestyle balance for those wanting to live sustainably and ‘off-grid’ but still within easy reach of Melbourne,” Ms Fagan and Ms McKee said.
