Peter Overton and Jessica Rowe sell multi-million-dollar Vaucluse home
Television presenters Peter Overton and Jessica Rowe have put their Vaucluse home under the virtual hammer, selling it for a whopping $8.175 million.
The final price was about half a million dollars above the reserve and more than $1 million above the $7 million price guide it was listed with two weeks ago.
The auction was opened by James Keenan, Ray White Double Bay’s selling agent and auctioneer, who told buyers an offer of “$7 million to $8 million would be a good start”.
With an opening bid of $7.5 million, a handful of bids later the property was declared on the market at $7.61 million.
16 bids later, the buyer who opened the auction secured the home for $8.175 million.
Overton recently told Domain that he and his family were looking to settle into a larger home in Vaucluse with more space for their two teenage daughters, Allegra and Giselle.
“It’s time for a change for that next stage of our family life,” he said.
The 700 square metre property features designer landscaped gardens, an alfresco entertaining area, and a solar-heated mosaic pool.
Inside the home, there is a deluxe master bedroom with a walk-in robe, a stylish ensuite and a private balcony, as well as three other bedrooms with built-in wardrobes.
The property was last sold 12 years ago for $3.37 million, and has undergone episodic renovations in recent years.
