  • It is another Federation-era residence that has attracted the couple, replacing the century-old house they sold nearby last August for $4.15 million, but their new home comes with plenty more high-end inclusions, such as a tennis court, swimming pool, spa and a self-contained studio above the garage.
  • The sale came within weeks of hitting the market earlier this month, and has been shrouded in secrecy since. Read more:

Former Olympic sprinter turned Fox Sports presenter Matt Shirvington and author wife Jessica have bought back in to the Mosman market, nearly a year after selling their former lower north shore home.
  • They've paid around $7.5 million for another Federation-era mansion, this one much bigger, coming with seven bedrooms, a tennis court and a swimming pool with spa.
  • There's also a self-contained studio above the garage.
  • The Raglan Street home last traded for $322,000 in 1980 when it was bought by former WorleyParsons executive Emil Finn and wife Genevieve.
  • The Shirvington's sold their former updated 1897 home for $4.15 million last August, scoring the pre-auction sale through McGrath's Michael Coombs.
  • It was the third time the couple tried to sell the home. They had paid $2.5 million in 2008.

Harelands, 5 Willsmere Road, Kew VIC 3101: asking $12-$15 million



Davies House, Kew (former names: Harelands, Blamey House) was built in 1903 for W.H. Davies. It is a comprehensive example of the hipped form of Federation house executed by leading architectural firm of Ussher and Kemp. The building stands on a prominence and was designed to take advantage of its exposed position.
  • Featured in Home & Garden Beautiful in August 1913, Harelands is an exquisite Federation residence which majestically displays its glorious period features both inside and out.
  • Built around 1903 for a family with four sons, it was taken over in the 1950s by Melbourne Legacy as a children's hostel.
  • While previously known as Blamey House, it lost its lustre as a Legacy hostel from the 1950s to the 1980s, but it has been restored over the past three decades.[2]
  • Saved from developers in the 1980's, it has since been restored and used as a home and a surgery by its doctor owner.

History


2012: Sydneysider snares trophy


Waimea House, a trophy Hobart residence that made headlines last year when it sold for $6.06 million to former Sydneysiders Piers Dawson-Damer and his wife, Kim, has quietly traded for a much higher figure and established a Tasmanian residential price record.
  • The Dawson-Damers reaped a quick profit after selling Waimea House for $8 million to Tasmanian-born Greg Woolley late last year. Apparently the couple were approached directly by Woolley, who stitched up the private off-market deal to secure the property.
    • A Sydneysider who resides at Point Piper (in a Wentworth Street house bought for $10.55 million in 2005), Woolley is a former Macquarie banker and a long-time adviser to the Lieberman family of Melbourne.
    • He was also a business partner in an aviation leasing company that included David Coe, who was chairman of the collapsed Allco Finance Group.
    • Last August, when the leasing company was sold, Woolley was reported to have collected proceeds of about $42.5 million on his investment made six years ago.

The Dawson-Damers bought Waimea House from the prominent Nettlefold family, who had owned it since 1948.
  • The Dawson-Damers moved to Tasmania after they sold their home in Kent Road, Rose Bay, for $8 million in August 2007 to entrepreneur Frank Tagg, a former Wests first-grade rugby league player who made a fortune as a McDonald’s franchisee.

2011:

Waimea House has been bought by Sydney property developer Piers Dawson-Damer and his wife Kim.
  • The couple had moved to Tasmania after selling their Rose Bay, Sydney home to entrepreneur Frank Tagg, the former Western Suburbs first grade footballer who made his money from McDonald's franchises and more recently from his part-ownership of stallion prospect Haradasun.

Waimea was sold by prominent Hobart family, the Nettlefolds, who then sold $1 million-plus of its contents through Mossgreen Auctions.
  • The Nettlefolds had consolidated the four-block amalgamation over the past 70 years.
  • The late Len Nettelfold, a successful businessman and Australian amateur golf champion, was the son of Tasmanian Motors founder Robert Nettlefold.
  • The family had the General Motors Tasmanian dealership which was subject to a 1982 takeover bid by then young entrepreneur Christopher Skase, who made a reputed $1.5 million plus from his brief foray.
