Famous person radio host Jackie O’s seek for a brand new dwelling throughout COVID-19 is over, together with her snap buy of an unimaginable dwelling in Woollahra for $11 million.
It’s the Nick Tobias-designed four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence with double storage overlooking Cooper Park — owned by high-profile stockbroker Angus Aitken and his spouse Sarah — that hit realestate.com.au on Friday.
The gross sales agent, Ben Collier of the Company — who had the plumb itemizing completely — had a information of above $10 million. However my sources say it’s fetched $1 million extra. It’s been up on-line for simply three days however consumers have been proven by the house over the previous few weeks.
Purchaser’s agent Simon Cohen on Friday advised the Wentworth Courier he’d proven some high-end shoppers by. As did Carli Skurnik of One Consumers Company, who was believed to have been concerned in final night time’s negotiation.
When contacted, Collier stated he couldn’t verify the identification of the client or the acquisition worth as a result of a confidentiality settlement. However a number of sources have confirmed that the favored “Kyle and Jackie O” co-host gained the keys and revealed what she paid.

If Saturday’s packed open dwelling was something to go by, locking within the deal to date forward of the scheduled March 18 public sale was a sensible choice.
There gave the impression to be loads of enthusiasm as consumers walked by.
I heard one girl request a contract from Collier and he or she was raving concerning the high quality of the house, which was accomplished seven years in the past.
He stated to her: “It value in extra of $5 million to construct then, so you possibly can solely think about what the substitute value can be at the moment.”
It is a dwelling that must be seen in individual to completely recognize — the photographs don’t fairly do it justice.
It’s beautiful sufficient from the road. However behind the massive entrance door there’s an entrance corridor with three-metre ceilings.
Past that, steps lead right down to a double-height open-plan dwelling house, that opens to a north-facing Myles Baldwin-designed backyard.
The heated pool seems like one thing you’d discover in an unique Bali resort.
A lovely visitor suite is cantilevered over the eating space.
However the different three bedrooms are on the highest flooring and the main bedroom is to die for, with its bed room looking over Cooper Park and a lavish ensuite and dressing room.
It’s the bush outlook that helps make the well-designed dwelling so particular.
Within the Wentworth Courier’s unique story on Friday revealing the itemizing of the Aitken dwelling, Tobias stated: “It’s simply such a unprecedented location … from almost each room you are feeling completely linked to the bushland.”
We’ve been following the radio star’s pursuit of a brand new dwelling from effectively earlier than she even listed her Vaucluse dwelling with Rubinstein.
It was final September that the Courier broke the information that Jackie O had narrowly missed out on a Vaucluse dwelling that bought for $5.86 million — almost half a million-dollars above expectations.
She’d seen the posh five-bedroom dwelling at 13 Fitzwilliam Rd for the primary time that morning, and requested brokers to halt proceedings in order that she may register to bid for it.
Quickly after we broke the information of Jackie O itemizing her Cambridge Ave dwelling, her ex, Lee Henderson, took the Wentworth Courier on an unique tour of the home.
And Jackie O had advised us: “My favorite a part of the home is the entrance, it reminds of the proper dwelling you envision as a baby … the white picket fence, the massive French doorways and the candy scent of jasmine rising in all places.”
That, too, was a merely stunning dwelling. However her new Woollahra residence is even higher.
