Neisha and John Pitt, perhaps the most low key winners ever of top rating Channel 9 series, The Block, are selling their Bexley investment property.

They haven't touched the 1920s home, which they once envisaged as running as a child care centre.

McGrath Brighton Le Sands agents Matthew King and Marc Gable have set a June 2 auction for the couple who paid $1.1 million for the home in 2016.

It comes with $1.1 million hopes.

The school sweethearts recently had the opportunity to secure other premises, triggering the listing of the $550 a week rental investment.

They have secured the Stepping Stones Early Leaning Centre in Kirrawee, where Neisha has been a director of for several years.

King helped them sell their winning The Block apartment when they competed against contestants who included Mark and Duncan, the fat tradies who finished second and returned for the All Stars series at Bondi in 2013.  

The couple profited handsomely when their three bedroom Old South Head, Vaculuse apartment fetched a then record Block price of $1,105,000.

The ground floor unit sold $205,000 above reserve so the couple pocketed $305,000 in prize money.

Just before the show aired the couple had sold their two bedroom Carlton home for $628,500, buying back into the market a year later.

They upsized paying $751,000 for a 1980s, five bedroom home with pool at Illawong where they live with their two children.
