Rich­lis­ter smashes sale

The Weekend Australian - - MANSION - JONATHAN CHAN­CEL­LOR

Tim Gurner, the young rich­lis­ter who fol­lowed Bernard Salt’s lead and told young peo­ple to stop buy­ing smashed avo­cado brunches so they could af­ford to be on the prop­erty lad­der, has sold his Toorak tro­phy home. Mar­shall White agent Mar­cus Chiminello se­cured the sale five weeks af­ter of­fers closed. Gurner and wife Aimee had ex­pec­ta­tions of $8.3 mil­lion-$9.1m. They have called the 1930s English-style, Christo­pher Doyle-de­signed six-bedroom house, which is in Aimee’s name, home since 2014 when it cost $5.3m. It is set on a 1204sq m block with a sep­a­rate guest­house, lush gar­dens and heated pool and spa. “When I was try­ing to buy my first home, I wasn’t buy­ing smashed avo­cado for 19 bucks and four cof­fees at $4 each,” Gurner told Ross Green­wood on 60 Min­utes ear­lier this year.
