Belly and Kelly make peace near Noosa

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

WHIS­PERS that Syd­ney iden­ti­ties An­thony Bell and Kelly Landry have bought a Noosa water­front home have been con­firmed.

But the story be­hind the big pur­chase on Hide­away Is­land sug­gests the two are seek­ing to turn the page on their tu­mul­tuous mar­i­tal break­down.

“Belly and Kelly”, as they were af­fec­tion­ately known, were the mys­tery $10.3 mil­lion buy­ers on Noosa Sound, pay­ing a then-record price in the hotspot Queens­land town late last year.

“Kelly and I have pur­chased the house in Noosa as she and the kids have moved up there,” Bell told me.

“I travel up there on the week­ends and I can hap­pily re­port Kelly and I are work­ing as a team to co-par­ent our beau­ti­ful chil­dren, who love the area and are en­rolled in a lo­cal school.”

The cou­ple have two daugh­ters six and un­der.

“An­thony and I are in the happy po­si­tion of be­ing co-par­ents and fo­cus­ing our en­er­gies on our chil­dren to en­sure they can en­joy a happy up­bring­ing in this beau­ti­ful part of Aus­tralia,” Landry said.

The re­cently built house on two parcels was rated HIA Queens­land home of the year when built with con­crete, steel, tim­ber, stone and glass to a de­sign by Paul Clout.

Span­ning more than 800sqm of liv­ing space, the home has six bed­rooms, six bath­rooms and a self-con­tained care­taker wing.

There are in­ter­nal court­yards in­te­grat­ing in­door and out­door liv­ing.

A 25m so­lar-heated in­fin­ity pool and out­door kitchen over­looks a 45m wa­ter frontage, which fea­tures a pri­vate sandy beach, two jet­ties and a boat ramp.

The water­front sale was se­cured by Tom Of­fer­mann Real Es­tate agent John Dover, who had an $11.9 mil­lion price guide.

Last week­end The Sun­day Tele­graph’s An­nette Sharp re­ported the cou­ple’s ef­forts to make peace, cit­ing In­sta­gram images of the fam­ily en­joy­ing boat trips on Noosa Sound.

Their for­mer home at Watsons Bay has been sold for about $18 mil­lion to the Cal­ligeros hote­lier fam­ily.

Bell lives as a bach­e­lor in a clifftop Dover Heights home he bought from Chan­nel 7 per­son­al­ity Larry Em­dur for $11.5 mil­lion.
