The Alexandria-apartment bound Neale Whitaker, a judge on Channel 9’s The Block, has sold his Surry Hills terrace.

He and partner David Novak-Piper had the Riley Street terrace initially listed with a price guide of $1.575 million. It was then lifted to $1.6 million.

The auction was brought forward with it selling at $1,756,000.

The couple renovated the terrace that spans three levels after Neale paid $690,000 in 2005.

There's an open-plan kitchen and lounge room that flows out to a rear courtyard with a deck. There is also a separate dining and living room and a central sunroom that opens on to an atrium.

There are original fireplaces throughout the home including in the main bedroom.

The marketing featured their two Weimaraners.

Arriving in Australia from London in 1999, Whitaker came to Sydney to take the helm of Marie Claire Lifestyle.

Whitaker started his career in the office of legendary British PR guru Lynne Franks (on whom the character of Eddy in Absolutely Fabulous was based).

He is doing his 10th series of The Block.
