Scott Cam has been host of The Block since 2010, but it wasn’t until the show landed in Gisbourne, VIC in 2022 that he picked up the tools himself, renovating an entire house alongside the contestants and showing us he’s picked up more than a thing or two about interior design along the way. Now, the house that Scott built, aka ‘Camalot’ is for sale, with a price guide of $4.1 million to $4.3 million.
But Scotty didn’t complete the renovation entirely on his own. Building company Nine in Six took care of the extension, while former contestants and builders Duncan Miller (from the show’s 2010 and 2013 season) and Spence Thompson (from the 2018 season) were enlisted to bring the old homestead back to life. And while the home was exempt from official judging, last year’s contestants were treated to a tour of a newly completed room each week as inspiration for their own home renovations.
This year, winners of weekly room reveals were treated to a night at Scotty’s Gisbourne house.
The renovation not only brought the 1866 homestead back from the brink of dilapidation, but saw the addition of modern creature comforts, including Australia’s first 3D-printed building in the form of a curvaceous pool cabana.
Listing agents Evans Realty Group say the 10-acre property’s most appealing aspects include: Baltic pine floors throughout, high ceilings, herringbone brick floors, custom Christian Cole timber island bench and butcher’s block and views of Mount Macedon framed by mature oak and Moreton Bay fig trees.
Cast your mind back to last year’s season and you might recall that the official price guides for all the homes was $4 million to $4.4 million – so does this mean Scotty’s house is expected to beat Oz and Omar’s record? It’s anyone’s guess. Auction day last year proved a disastrous affair, with three of five properties passing in. Sharon and Ankur’s home remained on the market for weeks until it was eventually sold to entrepreneur Adrian Portelli for $4.2 million in November, 2022.
‘Camalot’ is just one of several Block-related properties to hit the market this month. Serial Block property buyer Danny Wallis is selling Mitch and Mark’s home from the 2019 Oslo season of The Block via Expressions of Interest and Homes to Love reports that three Charming Street residents have also put their homes up for sale.
