And to think Rees Thomas shocked locals when she paid all of $15.475 million for it 18 months ago.
Following the paper trail south, Rees Thomas has taken her money to Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula. She has paid $26 million for a Hamptons-style mansion there. It has a swimming pool, tennis court, soccer field, equestrian facilities, golf simulator and health retreat.
The Victorian country estate was sold by the end beneficiary of the run of sales, Mark Healey. He is the son of the late British billionaire Eddie Healey, who recently sold his Toorak digs for $43.1 million to Chemist Warehouse boss Sam Gance.
Glamarama couple say ‘sell’
The Tamarama home of former model and TV presenter Michelle Walsh and her husband, Chadwick’s boss Martin Walsh, will go to auction on July 12.
Set in the landmark Stonehaven building, the four-bedroom spread was bought by Martin in two parts. The first was in 1988 for $168,000 and its neighbour for $380,000 in 2000, just a few months after the couple were married.
Martin, who took over the leading model agency in 2007, has listed it with Ray White’s Patrick Cosgrove.
Meanwhile, “finfluencer” and financial planner Canna Campbell and her partner, Tom Simpson, have joined the glamorous ranks of Tamarama.
They’ve paid $10.5 million for a contemporary four-bedroom home, no doubt funded in part by the sale of their Bondi home for $6.035 million in February.
Terra Capital’s Matt Langsford and Gigi Penna, daughter of actor Julieanne Newbould, have bought a matrimonial home up the road for $4.5 million.
