The Bellevue Hill home of Cameron Brownjohn, CEO Federation Asset Management and chair of Special Olympics Australia, and his wife, Lucinda, has hit the market.
Ray White Double Bay’s Ashley Bierman and Thomas Popple, in conjunction with D’Leanne Lewis of Laing and Simmons of Double Bay, are understood to have an initial price guide of around $5m ahead of a February 25 auction for the charming five-bedroom, three-bathroom home with triple parking and pool on a 684sqm block at 40 Fairfax Road.

There’s already strong interest, with 68 groups through the first open home on Saturday.
Judging by the pictures, someone’s going to fall in love with this one.
Hot property in Double Bay
This circa 1920s home is going to be one of the hottest properties around.
The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home with double parking is at 40 Cross Street, just a few footsteps from Double Bay village.
Property records show it’s owned by Dr Angelo Sklavos and his wife, Fiona from the famous Satouris family who own Peter’s of Kensington.
They bought it 14 years ago for $2.68m, via the same agent who has the listing this time round, Walter Antonelli of Sotheby’s.
He has a $5m price guide ahead of a February 27 auction.
The Sklavoses have done a significant renovation — moving the stairs to create an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area opening through timber bi-fold doors to a new deck.
They also added a new bathroom nearby as well as the luxurious ensuite in the master bedroom.
Homes this close to the village are always popular — in December, a whole-floor penthouse at 7/11 Guilfoyle Avenue owned by the late Ruth Gardos and her husband the late property developer Nick Gardos sold for $10.26m, $2.26m over reserve, at an action-packed auction.
The Elizabeth Bay waterfront apartment that property records show is owned by developer Richard Whitfield is “going nuts”, according to Ray White TRG agent Cae Thomas.
Its ad attracted 1000 views online in just four days.
And no wonder — the two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment with breathtaking harbour views in the Spanish Mission-style Buena Vista block at 1/5 Elizabeth Bay Crescent has been completely gutted and redesigned recently — he’d bought it for $975,000 in 2014.
Thomas, with colleague Jye Emdur, have a $2.3m price guide ahead of a February 23 auction.
Bryan Hoy Design, Gabrielle Allam of Studio Tenet and Couvaras Architects were all involved in the redesign of the luxury pad.
Boating enthusiasts will love that the apartment has exclusive access to a jetty.
Hot on the heels of the snappy $11m+ sale of a North Bondi block of four flats at 138 Hastings Parade last week comes the listing of eight flats at 142A Glenayr Avenue, Bondi Beach.
Currently comprised of a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments, some with study, the block has been owned by the Shuvalov family for more than 60 years.
It’s being offered with a $7m price guide ahead of a February 23 auction via Joseph Raskin and Sandy Shuvalov of Sotheby’s.
For sale after 50 years
The five-bedroom 17 Village Lower Road Vaucluse home of 50 years of Adriana Parides has hit the market with a $5.3m guide via Steven Zoellner of Laing and Simmons Double Bay.
Her late husband Stephen Parides started Bristol real estate and in the 1970s had six offices. His son, Robert, is now the owner of Laing and Simmons Bondi Junction and is the conjunction agent.
The house has a sunny north-westerly aspect and sweeping 180-degree harbour views to Manly.
Stolyar buys penthouse
The buyer of the Point Piper penthouse of San Francisco-based vintage car collector Charles Goodman and his wife, Barbara was Faina Stolyar, updated property records show.
And the Lady Martin’s Beach apartment sold in December for $10.4m — not more than $10.6m as first thought. The property had passed in at auction for $10.6m but ended up selling for less soon after.
Stolyar sold Lapin House, the 1949 Neville Gruzman-designed Rose Bay harbourfront, she shared with her mining industry son, Ian Stolyar, early last year for $16.6 million to currency trader Anthony Collick.
