If you’re a fan of HGTV’s mega-hit competition series Rock the Block, you’re bound to recognize this lovely home.
The modern farmhouse was crowned as the winner of the 1st season of the popular home design competition — which puts four teams of “powerhouse experts” to compete against each other to renovate identical properties and morph them into the ultimate suburban oasis.
In Rock the Block, the competitors/property experts only have a few weeks to get everything done, and they’re working on a strict budget.
But that didn’t stop Jasmine Roth, star of HGTV’s Hidden Potential, from delivering a stunning remodel of the single-story home.
The judges praised Jasmine’s remodel for being family-friendly and adding beautiful features like a dramatic entryway, a pool, and an elevated interior style.
Set in the master-planned community of Aliento, a gated enclave in Santa Clarita, Calif., the single-story residence packs 2,547 square feet of living space in its beautifully-appointed interiors.
With 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, the HGTV house is warm and inviting, featuring high ceilings and light wood floors.
The great room is anchored by a stone fireplace, with a tall wood-paneled ceiling towering above and sliding doors opening up to the backyard and pool area.
The open floorplan leads into the beautiful kitchen, which has custom floor-to-ceiling cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a built-in beverage refrigerator, designer tile backsplash, and an oversized island.
Each bedroom of the Rock the Block winner has been carefully envisioned to maximize comfort without sacrificing on style. Same goes for the bathrooms, where Jasmine Roth clearly picked out all the finishes herself.
Jasmine Roth also completely transformed the backyard, which is now a welcoming space that invites relaxation with a pool, dedicated lounging areas, and canyon views.
The charming property was briefly on the market in early 2022, listed for $1,149,000, with Ray Akbari of The Agency in charge of finding a buyer. And it seems like Ray did his job spectacularly well, as the 4-bedroom home sold for considerably more — and didn’t spend much time on the market.
Jasmine Roth’s house project from Season 1 of Rock the Block sold in February 2022 for 1,355,000. The Santa Clarita house was on the market for less than six weeks before selling for $206,000 (17.9%) more than the initial asking price.
It’s been a few years since Jasmine Roth’s house won the competition, and we’ve gotten to see quite a few striking homes take shape before our eyes in the past seasons, but the Season 1 winner will always hold a special place in our hearts.
In Spring 2023, Rock the Block has returned for a fourth season hosted by popular carpenter, craftsman, and design expert Ty Pennington. The fourth season was the most valuable yet, featuring the biggest houses and the biggest budgets in Rock the Block history: the unrenovated homes boasted a starting value of $1.9 million, and the competitors had a budget of $250,000 to renovate the four identical 5,000-square-foot properties in Berthoud, Colorado.
There’s still no news on whether Ty Pennington and Rock the Block will return for a 5th season, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed.
