Tus­can-style award win­ner

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

FASH­ION de­signer Jenny Ban­nis­ter is sell­ing her award­win­ning St Kilda home.

The four-bed­room Vic­to­rian res­i­dence at 80 Welling­ton St was named

House of the Year in 1991 and is fin­ished in her trade­mark vi­brant style.

Ms Ban­nis­ter and hus­band Paul Belin bought the home in 1989 and called on ar­chi­tect Al­lan Pow­ell to work his magic. “The way he de­signed this house was just sen­sa­tional,” she said.

There are soar­ing ceil­ings, ex­pan­sive liv­ing spa­ces and a vivid Tus­can vibe, plus a swim­ming pool. One of Ban­nis­ter’s favourite aspects is the open and airy con­fig­u­ra­tion around the rear court­yard.

The main bed­room suite, the sun­room and the fam­ily, kitchen and din­ing zone wrap around the court­yard.

Martin Fox, of Wil­son Agents, is han­dling the March 5 auc­tion, with price ex­pec­ta­tions of $2 mil­lion-plus.
