Celebrity radio host Jackie O’s seek for a brand new house throughout COVID-19 is over, along with her snap buy of an unimaginable house 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 solely — 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 means of the house over the previous few weeks.
Purchaser’s agent Simon Cohen on Friday instructed the Wentworth Courier he’d proven some high-end purchasers by means of. As did Carli Skurnik of One Consumers Company.
Though Collier couldn’t be contacted this morning, a number of sources have confirmed that the favored “Kyle and Jackie O” co-host was the customer.
They usually stated that she had Ray White TRG principal Gavin Rubinstein appearing for her.
Rubinstein refused to remark when contacted this morning, but it surely is smart since he was the agent that did the deal on the Vaucluse house she shared with former husband Lee Henderson.
That bought for a powerful $6,675,000 on March 27, simply as COVID-19 struck.

If Saturday’s packed open house was something to go by, locking within the deal to date forward of the scheduled March 18 public sale was a sensible resolution.
There gave the impression to be loads of enthusiasm as consumers walked by means of.
I heard one lady request a contract from Collier and she or he was raving in regards to the high quality of the house, which was accomplished seven years in the past.
He stated to her: “It cost in excess of $5 million to build then, so you can only imagine what the replacement cost would be today.”
It is a house that must be seen in individual to totally recognize — the pictures 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 appears to be like like one thing you’d discover in an unique Bali resort.
A phenomenal visitor suite is cantilevered over the eating space.
However the different three bedrooms are on the highest ground and the master 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 house so particular.
Within the Wentworth Courier’s unique story on Friday revealing the itemizing of the Aitken house, Tobias stated: “It’s just such an extraordinary location … from nearly every room you feel totally connected to the bushland.”
We’ve been following the radio star’s pursuit of a brand new house from properly earlier than she even listed her Vaucluse house with Rubinstein.
It was final September that the Courier broke the information that Jackie O had narrowly missed out on a Vaucluse house that bought for $5.86 million — practically half a million-dollars above expectations.
She seen the luxurious five-bedroom house 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 house, her ex, Lee Henderson, took the Wentworth Courier on an unique tour of the home.
And Jackie O had instructed us: “My favourite part of the house is the front, it reminds of the perfect home you envision as a child … the white picket fence, the big French doors and the sweet scent of jasmine growing everywhere.”
That, too, was a merely lovely house. However her new Woollahra residence is even higher.
