Incredible Park Orchards pad built by The Block’s Kerrie and Spence for sale after stylish transformation

Built by a team on The Block and believed to have had $1.5m more spent on it since.

A Park Orchards record contender originally built by The Block’s Kerrie and Spence Thomson has hit the market with an incredible new look.

The lavish lifestyle home at 36-38 South Valley Road, called Terra Murus, is for sale with a $4-$4.4m price guide.

If the property sells within the guide it would be crowned the suburb’s most expensive home, taking the title from 124 Knees Road, which sold for $3.8m in 2009, according to CoreLogic.

Landscaped grounds set the tone.

Sleek lines open to native greenery.

Barry Plant Manningham agent Theo Politis said there were other properties worth about “$4-$5m plus” in the area, but they very rarely came up for sale.

“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a home without having to do any work to get it to this standard,” Mr Politis said.

“The owner has already taken the home to the next level.”

Design focal points around the pool.

It’s believed the vendor spent more than $1.5m enhancing the property, after buying it as a complete package from renovation experts Kerrie and Spence Thomson in 2015. CoreLogic shows the property transacted for $3.09m at the time.

Mr Politis said the buyer landscaped the entire 2561sq m block, added a two-car rammed-earth garage and completely changed the existing kitchen and bathroom.

“He also reconfigured the guest wing into a master bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and bathroom,” Mr Politis said.

‘Luxe’ is a word frequently used on The Block, and no doubt when describing this home too.

Step out of bed into daylight.

Even the basketball court is stylish.

“There’s also a basketball half-court on the property now.”

The original four-bedroom home was designed by architect Ramon Pleysier from the firm Pleysier Perkins, whose work has featured on the Grand Designs Australia TV show.

Environmentally friendly materials including timber and rammed earth were employed to create the sustainable six-star energy rated property, which comes with a luxurious saltwater pool.
