The Block 2017: Elyse Knowles and Josh Barker are set to sell their Coburg home. 

The Block‘s Josh Barker and Elyse Knowles are set to sell their Coburg home at auction just three weeks after the show’s finale.

The couple renovated the three bedroom, two bathroom California bungalow, giving it all the modern touches while still keeping its heritage charm.

Barker is a carpenter, so had the technical know-how, but for model Knowles, renovating was a whole new experience.

“We bought the house when I was 21, and I’d never had any experience in this so I was really relying on Josh and his knowledge,” Knowles said. “I think I’ve always been a creative person and I think it opened up more doors for me and I learnt a lot along the way.”

Hocking Stuart director David Wood said said the property is expected to sell between $1.35 and $1.45 million at the auction, to be held on November 18. Mr Wood said the pair did a fantastic job on the renovation, particularly with the huge undercover outdoor entertaining space. 

“It’s really Josh and Elyse out the back – it’s really stylish and chilled,” Mr Wood said. “It’s an area for all seasons.” FULL ARTICLE HERE
