Followers of the third season of “Rock the Block” will distinctly bear in mind the pizzazz that Leslie Davis and Lyndsay Lamb dropped at the competitors. For six weeks, we watched the dual sisters and stars of “Unsellable Homes” battle towards three different groups of HGTV celebrities to design a single-family residence from scratch and add probably the most worth to the property.
And whereas they won’t have received the entire thing, their antics (like toilet-papering the home of fellow opponents Egypt Sherrod and Mike Jackson) have been a relentless supply of snickers. Plus, it was enjoyable to see how they infused their earthy-eclectic design sensibility into their residence rework.
Now, it seems their exhausting work has paid off: Their five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom residence in Summerville, SC, simply hit the marketplace for $1.25 million. The brick-and-shingle abode is simply over 3,100 sq. ft on an 8,000-square-foot lot that backs as much as a small, non-public river.
Damian Corridor, an actual property agent with The Damian Hall Group in Greenville, SC, may be very accustomed to the market and has excessive reward for Lamb and Davis’ efforts.
“They nailed the look with this one—the aesthetic, the vibe, and the ground plan—it’s the epitome of what’s in demand proper now,” says Corridor.
The twins did nearly all the things proper, he says, together with their exterior work, citing “the craftsman-level particulars, the colour palettes with hunter greens and cobalt blues, and even the accordion doorways that are perfect for making the porch a pure extension of the home on Carolina summer season evenings.”
Southern facilities are additionally a part of the appeal, with a front room that encompasses a moist bar and a chef’s kitchen with a sweet-tea station on the aspect. However the latter function may not resonate with everybody.
“I’m unsure a devoted place for candy tea is vital sufficient that one would sacrifice extra counter area or cabinets for it,” says Tony Mariotti, an actual property agent and the founding father of RubyHome in Los Angeles.
When you tuned in to “Rock the Block,” you’ll keep in mind that Davis and Lamb’s fundamental bed room and loo received the weekly judging prize. The primary suite showcases a huge moist room full with a rain bathe and soaking tub. There’s additionally an enviable walk-in closet with—get this—a washer and dryer. This luxurious amenity impressed the judges, and it’s sure to make patrons glad.
Different wonderful facilities right here embrace a house theater, youngsters’ homework station, third-floor bonus room, and visitor suite above the indifferent storage. This candy suite has a full rest room and a spot for a daybed and a mini kitchen.
“It’s very good to create a dwelling area above the indifferent storage because it maximizes the general sq. footage,” says Mariotti.
As for the outside touches, Corridor commends Davis and Lamb on their selection of tumbled brick for the storage. The primary home options cedar-shake siding with inexperienced shutters for a contemporary, fashionable look.
Yard facilities embrace an outside grilling kitchen, an eight-person eating desk, and a dwelling wall backyard, which reinforces the twins’ idea of a “yard-to-table” exterior. Additionally they added a privateness fence lined with native crops.
“They did a implausible job working with each inch of the encircling property since having a number of outside dwelling areas isn’t all the time simple to search out at this value,” says Corridor.
So, is that this “Rock the Block” pad going to catch a purchaser’s eye? It’s been available on the market for only a handful of days, however the outlook is nice.
Itemizing agent Jason Harper has reported a lot of curiosity within the property and was anticipated to be quite busy displaying it. In line with the itemizing, the vendor is not going to be accepting affords decrease than the asking value.
