Former Better Homes and Gardens landscaper, Jason Hodges's heritage-listed home in North Ryde has been sold for $1.87 million as he turns his focus onto Buxus Balls of Berry.

The 126 Twin Road property was listed just months after Hodges was axed from the popular Seven's lifestyle which he had been apart of for 15 years.

The 1887 residence initially had a $1.9 million price guide through McGrath agent John McManus. 

The home was first bought in 2011 by Hodges and partner Lisa, a horticulturalist, for $685,000.

With a preserved home front, the home features landscaped gardens with lawn, hedging, stepping stones and topiary. Meanwhile, the backyard comes with a pizza oven.

The couple, who have two children, have a property in Berry, bought just days before news came that he had been dropped last December. The two-hectare property cost $1.25 million with last month’s settlement papers showing no registered financing was required.

Hodges also has a nearby one-hectare holding. It cost $122,000 in 2014 with frontage to Broughton Creek but with limited building permission, being zoned (1g) Rural Flood Liable. He spends much of his time on the solar-powered buxus farm with a hut built from stuff from the tip.

He said he will turn his focus to his business, Buxus Balls Of Berry. On Instagram, the popular landscaper writes, "Well the show will go on."

Having been apart of the Seven's  cast since 2005, Hodges was reportedly “gutted” when axed from the program, but also grateful.

“From the first day I have been pinching myself — average student, average footballer, average landscaper, average bloke,” he said on social media.

His career highlights included his medal-winning garden designs at the Chelsea Flower Show in London.

He was replaced by landscape designer and TV presenter Charlie Albone, who moved to the program from Foxtel’s Selling Houses Australia.
