Two of the stars of Luxe Listings have laughed off a report that a Point Piper house that appears in the hit realty TV show is actually listed for sale with a $100m price tag.
But it’s clear this morning that the tour of the Wolseley Road luxury home, with private beach, jetty and iconic views, was just for the purposes of the show.
Ray White TRG principal Gavin Rubinstein told the Wentworth Courier this morning: “Gary is a personal friend of mine. His house is not on the market.”
Buyer’s agent Simon Cohen also said: “It’s not for sale.”
According to a report in The Australian yesterday, Gary Wolman, the former Cinqplast Plastop packing entrepreneur and part-owner of the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, has listed the home and “dreams” of securing $100m”.
The house appears in the final episode of the six-part series, currently screening on Amazon Prime, which also stars Laing & Simmons Double Bay principal D’Leanne Lewis.
Auctioneer Damien Cooley, Michael Pallier of Sotheby’s and a range of other eastern suburbs agents also appear.
The house is introduced in the show with Rubinstein telling Cohen: “I’m excited to show you this house” and Cohen replies “You promised me a $100m view and I’m frothing.”
The onscreen graphic gives a price estimate of $80m but during the tour, Rubinstein says “He dreams of $100m … I’ve told him that’s not possible.”
But there are hints that the house isn’t actually for sale, with Rubinstein saying “I think if he came up to me and said ‘I’m actively looking to sell, we could get him somewhere in the vicinity of $80m.”
Cohen says “OK.”
Rubinstein says: “But I need to twist his arm with a big number — he’s not like ‘I’ll do a deal’.
“He’s like ‘I’ll do a deal if the price is right’.”
Cohen says: “All right, done.”
Rubinstein replies: “You speak to your client and I’ll speak to the homeowner — we’ll do a little dance like we always do and let’s see if we can do a deal.”
The segment ends with the usual frivolity between the pair: Rubinstein: “I’ve got another three buyers coming.
Cohen: “I hope they offer you $12m.
Rubinstein: “Yeah they will, for the jetty.”
The TRG principal added this morning that Wolman wouldn’t sell for $80m or even $100m. “We have discussed — the problem is to replace it,” Rubinstein said.
“With what that house offers, $100m can’t replace it.”
The only house in Australia to have sold for $100m was the Point Piper mansion Fairwater, purchased by the Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes, in 2018 via Ken Jacobs of Christies.
But that was on 11,000 sqm of land while this is on 1350sqm.
However, Edgewater, also in Wolseley Road and on approximately 1800 sqm of land, sold last year for $95m through Michael Pallier.
