Boost Juice founder Janine Allis is among eight Toorak mansion owners to sign an eight-figure property deal in four days as Melbourne’s top end goes “troppo”.
Allis now heads up Retail Zoo, which oversees Boost, Salsas and Cibo Espresso and has appeared on TV shows including Shark Tank and Survivor.
Her and husband Jeff listed their 9 Whernside Avenue family home for $20m-$22m on March 2 and sold it about two weeks later.
Marshall White’s Marcus Chiminello brokered the deal, but could not be reached for comment.
However industry sources suggest the home has sold for north of $20m.
A St Georges Road, Toorak, home is also understood to have sold for just under $20m, with another six homes notching north of $11m in the space of four days.
Morrell and Koren buyer’s advocate to the city’s wealthy elite David Morrell said there had been “more activity in the top end in four days than there has been in the past four years”.
“I haven’t seen this in 40 years,” Mr Morrell said.
“Everyone is just going troppo over property.
“Five weeks ago I’d never had more choice of $20m-plus homes, but now someone has just pushed the go button.”
The Allis family home, currently listed as under contract, has five bedrooms and is a completely new build from the home they bought at the address for $11m in 2016.
“That house basically took two years to build and it was basically my passion house, but we made the call and went ‘let’s move on, let’s keep going’,” Ms Allis previously told News Corp.
“The house is gorgeous. It has great energy and a really great feel to it.”
She said the home’s courtyard garden with a waterfall and fish pond would be particularly missed as her yoga retreat.
The wealthy family is planning to relocate to Sydney’s northern beaches.
They are yet to sell a $10.8m-$11.8m beach house at 310 Great Ocean Road, Fairhaven, which is famed for its role in the 1979 Mad Max movie starring Mel Gibson.
