Josh and Jenna - contestants of the 2011 Richmond series of The Block- have sold pre-auction their Maidstone cottage.

Marketed as a sophisticated and stylish period beauty, the three bedroom Edwardian cottage (pictured below) had been tipped to fetch $470,000 plus. No sale price has been revealed.

Behind its picturesque facade, the cottage was marketed as a blend of "period beauty and modern day comfort."

It had a light filled kitchen featuring the best from Liebherr and Bosch.

It is close to Medway golf course, Highpoint shopping centre and public transport options.

It's sale was presumably above the suburb's $487,000 current median house price.

It was listed through Branko Lemaic at Jas H Stephens who says the Mitchell Street place as been re-stumped, re-wired, re-plumbed and re-roofed. It too comes with wide hallway, soaring ceilings, designer decking, plantation shutters and American Oak flooring.

"“We moved to the inner West from South Melbourne three years ago and have grown to love the location, space and the convenience,” Jenna said.

It was only a few weeks ago their renovation - and the dearest home in the 2011 Block Richmond renovation series - resold for the first time.

It was the three bedroom 37 Cameron Street Richmond cottage renovated by Josh and Jenna who had a $950,000 Block 2011 auction reserve.

Their Edwardian cottage sold under the television bright lights for $1 million. Its recent auction price guidance was $1 million plus.

And it fetched $1,147,500.
