The former home of children’s writer Paul Jennings has become a modern beach paradise for “future billionaires.”
The creator of Round the Twist and his actor partner Mary-Anne Fahey sold the Acland St property for $1.95 million in 2017.
Since then, the new owners have completely renovated it, turning this brothel residence in its heyday into a luxurious “resort-style” residence.
Whitefox Director Matty Fox said that this magnificent characteristic residence provides the most sought after lifestyle in the waterfront area.
He said that its rich and colorful history as a brothel “back in time” adds to the character of the property.
Mr. Fox said: “In one of the picturesque tree-lined places, you have an exterior wall with more than 100 years of history, combined with beautiful modern decoration, a place that offers an incredible lifestyle in history. .”
“It has a beautiful resort-style swimming pool and poolside bar-like seating.
“And it’s near St. Moritz (luxury development zone), which is the ranks of future millionaires or billionaires.”
The property is divided into two floors with high ceilings, hardwood floods and period details.
At the front of the house, on the first floor, you can find a relaxing rest space, bedroom and bathroom.
Continue to the large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with stylish black cabinets, oversized Carrara marble benches, double Vintec wine refrigerators and Smeg appliances.
At the rear, stackable windows lead to tiled outdoor dining and entertaining spaces and a luxurious swimming pool.
Three bedrooms are located on the first floor, including a spacious master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom, a walk-in closet and a private balcony.
Mr. Fox said there was considerable interest in the house, and more than 30 groups inspected it last week.
He said the supplier has a “growing family” and is looking to upgrade.
