Stacy and Adam’s apartment from The Block NZ: Firehouse is for sale


Just like the ninth season of The New Zealand Block hit its stride, an apartment from last season went on sale.

Stacy Heyman and Adam Middleton’s two-level heritage apartment in Kingsland’s ‘fire station’, which grossed $ 1.48 million immediately after Block’s live auction in September 2019, will be auctioned off by Bayleys Ponsonby on July 28, 2021.

The northwest-facing three-bedroom apartment is one of five created in the former Kingsland Fire Station in Auckland, and has often been chosen as a competition favorite. At the Block auction, the price reached was a record for an apartment in Kingsland.

The split-level front apartment of the former Kingsland Fire Station - 2/516 New North Road - has arrived on the market.  It was remodeled by Stacey Heyman and Adam Middleton on The Block NZ in 2019.

At The block, the apartment was auctioned fully furnished, and Stacy and Adam’s designer touches are still very much present. King says that a detailed list of furniture / movable items is included in the sale of the property.

The apartment is also notable for its heritage character – it features the high ceilings and multi-pane (now double-glazed) windows of the original building. The main living room and master bedroom are on the upper level, with a media room and two further bedrooms on the ground floor.

Other special features include a winning host’s kitchen The block open plan kitchen, a sunny winter garden on one side (which also gained a bedroom) and lots of natural light. King says clever use of technology also equips the apartment for modern living.

The heritage apartment has high ceilings and solid concrete walls.  The windows are double glazed.
