Dou­ble money on Bondi home no joke for Gorr

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

Big time co­me­dian turned ob­scure ABC Mel­bourne ra­dio broad­caster Libbi Gorr and her TV pro­ducer part­ner Ste­wart Burch­more se­cured $3.23 mil­lion for their re­dun­dant North Bondi home at its auc­tion yes­ter­day. Mean­while the sub­urb’s record headed into dou­ble dig­its.

Around $2.7 mil­lion had been tipped for the cou­ple now based in Mel­bourne’s Brighton East where they have a $1.3 mil­lion Span­ish Mis­sion-style home.

The three­bed­room Gil­gan­dra Rd auc­tion of­fer­ing, which has been a $1350 weekly ren­tal earner over the past four years, cost $1,605,000 in 2007, so they dou­bled their out­lay. A And d th they’re’ keep keep­ing the two chan­de­liers, too.

Phillips Pantzer Don­nel­ley agents Ja­son Pantzer had four bid­ders, all above the sig­nalled $2.9 mil­lion re­serve, on the of­fer­ing mar­keted as hav­ing po­ten­tial to live in, ren­o­vate or com­pletely re­build.

Gorr, grow­ing up in Mur­rum­beena, got her big break with Andrew Den­ton’s ABC sports com­edy pro­gram Live and Sweaty, where her satir­i­cal char­ac­ter Elle McFeast emerged in 1991.

On the ex­clu­sive North Bondi clifftop, phi­lan­thropist and eco-start-up in­vestor Tanya Carnegie se­cured the sub­urb’s record last week when she sold her de­signer home for $10.35 mil­lion. And it’s whis­pered that fash­ion boss Si­mone Zim­mer­mann and her hus­band Michael Red­mond are up­grad­ing to a $5.5 mil­lion house af­ter sell­ing on El­liott St for around $4 mil­lion.

The Red­fern haven has floors from a bowl­ing al­ley.
