The Block co-host Shelley Craft and her husband, real estate agent Christian Sergiacomi, both have a very keen eye for property in their daytime jobs.

And in their downtime they do more than dabble.

The couple have just secured a $1.35 million land parcel on Byron Bay's Belongil peninsula.

They secured a 650 sqm non-beachfront building parcel, which is around 150 metres from the popular beach that holds a special place in the couple's hearts.

They got married on the beach in 2009, calling it their “most special place in the world”.

Craft recently posted a picture to Instagram of the beach with saying "Is this anyone else's idea of perfection???"

They're now set to build a beach house to utilize as a Belongil Beach holiday rental. No doubt it will be a Shelley's beach house style project.

It came with $400,000 approved work plans from 2014.

They have engaged architect Paul Uhlmann, who is also designed their current home within the town which they secured for $3 million last year.

That's getting a pool, pergola and poolhouse.

Their purchase in the thriving town came after they sold their luxury hinterland holding The McLeod Shoot home fetched $2.55 million last year bought by the former Bronte based entrepreneur Justin Butterworth who pioneered online holiday home rental websites in Australia.

Craft got some design tips from fellow Block stars Darren Palmer and Shaynna Blaze after the property was bought from the McGettigan pioneering family who first settled in Byron Bay in 1882.

Craft, whose career kicked of with presenting roles on Seven's Saturday Disney and The Great Outdoors, then Australia's Funniest Home Video Show, is busy co-hosting the hit Channel Nine renovation series The Block.

The 13th season which is being filmed in Melbourne's ELSTERNWICK involves the restoration of old homes hauled onto the site.

It is likely to be begin in August.

Craft met Sergiacomi when they traveled the world together on The Great Outdoors in 2007. Sergiacomi was working as a cameraman at the time.

They have two daughters.

Sergiacomi, now a sales agent at Byron Bay property sales, had a hand in the biggest sale in Byron Bay last year.

It came when businessman Mark Rowsthorn, chief of transport company McAleese, sold holiday home on the exclusive Marine Parade to Burra Foods boss Grant Crothers for $8 million.
