Former international model turned influencer Steffanie Tzaneros and her husband, Michael, have doubled their money on a luxury Bondi Beach pad that’s sold pre-auction, $300k above the guide.
TRG founder and Luxe listings star Gavin Rubinstein had been due to put the two-bedder in the popular beachside Pacific Bondi Beach block under the hammer last night, but sold it in the lead up.
The guide had originally been $3.5m, but with several buyers keen Rubinstein got the deal done for $3.8m.
Property records show the apartment was purchased for $1,795,000 in December, 2015.
Steffanie, who was popular on the catwalks of Milan, Berlin and New York, met Michael in the Big Apple in 2012.
At the start of the campaign, Michael said living in the Bondi Beach apartment had been “unreal”.
“To have the beach and Woolworths as our pantry and BWS our wine cellar and so many cafes and restaurants … we won’t be able to replicate that anywhere in the world let alone Sydney.”
But with one-year-old daughter, Xanthi, in tow, and plans to have more kids, the couple are now upgrading to a family home.
Rubinstein had said the apartment had broad appeal, from first home buyers, executives, downsizers and even people living in Vaucluse/Watsons Bay or out of Sydney’s east wanting a weekender.
