Tzaneros, who makes up half of the Poco Designs firm with her mum Charlotte O’Neil, bought the Rush Street terrace for $2.1 million, taking possession of it one week before her 30th birthday.
In keeping with her family’s property developer roots, she undertook a renovation before the three-bedroom house hit the market on Thursday with Bresic Whitney’s Maclay Longhurst. Buyers are being given a $3.25 million guide ahead of the September 10 auction.
Kensington’s fashionable digs
Fashion stylist Nicole Bonython-Hines and her husband Peter Hines are scaling down from their Queen Anne Federation home in Kensington.
Bonython-Hines, who has worked for titles like fashion, she and Harper’s Bazaarhas set a September 10 auction for the family home, known as Aberfoyle, and a guide of $3.75 million through Ballard’s James Ball.
The couple have been Kensington locals for more than 20 years, buying their Todman Avenue home in 2008 for $1.725 million, and commissioning a redesign by Tribe Design Studio in 2018.
The pre-spring market debut coincides with that of the Bronte home of futurist Simon Corah and interior designer Monique Corah.
James Ball and co-agent Alexander Phillips, of PPD, have a $17 million guide on the three-level residence overlooking Bronte Beach.
Whale Beach’s new high
Whale Beach’s house price record has stood at $13.1 million for a decade since billionaire climate change activist Geoff Cousins sold on the beachfront, and despite the soaring records claimed in Palm Beach (now $27.5 million) and even Newport ($24.5 million). But no more.
Early childcare entrepreneur Matt McLellan, a former partner at Ironbridge, and his partner Rosemary Armstrong have claimed the local crown, buying the getaway of venture capitalist John Grant for $14.125 million.
The oceanfront reserve house – sold by LJ Hooker’s David Edwards and BJ Edwards – is set at the end of the prized north-facing cul-de-sac Malo Road.
It was previously owned by 60 minutes′ star reporter Jana Wendt and her husband Brendan Ward, until they sold in 2005 for $5.9 million.
Expect the record to be well and truly smashed once work is complete on Jen Hawkins’ clifftop house, when it is expected to settle to its mystery $30 million buyer.
McLellan and his business partner Sean Muffet own the Bristol Group, which with some 15 early childcare centers in its portfolio surely ranks among the largest non-listed group of its kind.
Wenkart’s healthy interests
Medico mogul Dr Thomas Wenkart and family are already big fans of the grand homes of Killara’s best street, Springdale Road, with a family compound of three houses in a row on a 6300 square meter parcel complete with tennis court and swimming pool.
So what’s another, picked up recently by the Wenkart family’s corporate interests for $12.155 million?
The landmark art deco mansion, sold by Black Diamondz’s Monika Tu, offers more to the founder, chief and chairman of Macquarie Health Corporation than just another grand home with a tennis court and swimming pool.
It’s positioned next to Macquarie’s Dalcross Wellness Hospital, one of 13 private hospitals owned by the company across Sydney and Melbourne.
Drummoyne’s top flip
Six months after Get Fish director Antonio Muollo, 23, and his dad Tony Muollo, owner of De Costi retail outlet at the Sydney Fish Markets, took the keys to their $13.125 million waterfront home in Drummoyne, it’s back up for sale.
The five-bedroom residence with an 18-meter mooring, pool and slipway last sold in September for well above the then $10 million guide.
But throw in $855,000 stamp duty on the purchase and the almost $14 million total is what is being asked this time around, through Cobden Hayson’s Daniel Patterson.
Patterson said the Muollos are returning to the east, where they have owned their Vaucluse family home since buying in 2009 for $5 million.
