A Dolphin Point home will go under the hammer in March after receiving a make-over by the team from Foxtel’s Selling Houses Australia.

Perched on the headland, with panoramic ocean views, the 1960s beach house has been transformed by the team of designers.

They added a contemporary feel but retained the retro vibe of the property on Seaside Parade.

The sleepy hamlet south of Ulladulla has been a hive of activity throughout February as teams of tradespeople worked their magic under the guidance of designer Shaynna Blaze and gardening expert Charlie Albone.

Foxtel’s Selling Houses Australia host Andrew Winter has been exploring the area.

The Raine & Horne Mollymook Milton agent Ben Pryde will auction the property on March 23.

Pryde said he was excited to have the make-over team in Dolphin Point, working with homeowners Steve and Serena Blakey.

“It’s been a whirlwind, but loads of fun,” he said.

“The show will really showcase our region as a jewel on the South Coast and the weather has been absolutely perfect for every day of filming other than a spectacular storm in the final hours of the renovation.”

Mr Pryde said more than 60 parties inspected the property before the make-over, with more than 80 turning out for the reveal last weekend.

The Selling Houses Australia episode focusses on the lives of Steve and Serena Blakley and their four kids, who have loved the last 15 years living on the coast.

It’s been a wonderful place for the couple to raise kids and indulge their passion for surfing, but a few years ago their world was rocked when their youngest son contracted encephalitis (inflammation on the brain).

The family are selling up to fund his treatment but, after 12 months on the market, the property still hasn’t sold.

Prior to the make-over, the Selling Houses Australia team described the home as “dated, mismatched and needing a lot of small maintenance jobs”.

“This is one family that desperately need our help.”

The 45 Seaside Parade Dolphin Point episode will be the finale for the series, streaming on Wednesday, May 29 at 8:30pm.

There have been just five sales above $1 million at Dolphin Point since 2013, with three of them last year.
