Home fit for a show­biz king

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

THE Mos­man home of vet­eran com­pany di­rec­tor Roy Wood­house and his wife Vir­ginia has been listed for sale.

Wood­house served as the deputy chair­man at the prop­erty busi­ness Char­ter Hall Group un­til 2013. He was best known for his stint as the chair­man of Knight Frank Asia Pa­cific.

The Gre­cia Lane home, once known as Caisleal, has been ren­o­vated by ar­chi­tect Wal­ter Barda since the cou­ple bought it from the king of day­time tele­vi­sion Mike Walsh.

The work was un­der­taken about 15 years ago after the prop­erty was bought for $2.6 mil­lion in 2000. I re­call the now-Lon­don-based im­pre­sario had $2 mil­lion-plus ex­pec­ta­tions through Ken Ja­cobs of Christie’s in con­junc­tion with McGrath’s John McGrath.

Walsh, who turned 80 last month, re­tains the Hay­den Or­pheum, the lo­cal cin­ema on Mil­i­tary Rd.

Given it makes the most of its north­east­erly as­pect, cur­rent list­ing agent John Sul­li­van at Sul­li­van Real Es­tate has given buy­ers a $5.75 mil­lion to $6.25 mil­lion price guid­ance.

There is di­rect ac­cess from the bot­tom of the gar­den to Rosh­erville Re­serve, with a short walk across to Chi­na­mans Beach.

Fol­low­ers of the Mos­man prop­erty merry-go-round still await set­tle­ment de­tails of the year’s top sale — the Bal­moral Slopes home of REA Group board mem­ber and for­mer Fox­tel chief ex­ec­u­tive Richard Freuden­stein and his wife Jane.

The Bur­ran Ave home had $25 mil­lion price hopes.
