Sale has fairy­book end­ing

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

BOOK il­lus­tra­tor Ann James has closed a chap­ter af­ter sell­ing her Mid­dle Park home for more than $5 mil­lion.

Bel­lamy, at 300 Bea­cons­field Pde, has been a cre­ative cen­tre for decades, with big names in chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture such as

creator Leigh Hobbs, Ali­son Lester, Shaun Tan, Paul Jen­nings and Terry Den­ton drop­ping in.

It is easy to see where they drew artis­tic in­spi­ra­tion from, with bay views on their doorstep and en­chant­ing rear gar­dens.

Cayzer di­rec­tor Michael Szulc sold the 460sq m beauty for $5.2 mil­lion a few days af­ter it was passed in at its Oc­to­ber 17 auc­tion.
