The Vautins had originally listed their two-level penthouse with a private lift and rooftop terrace last February with $4m-plus price hopes, amid plans to build a dream home. The property was transformed by a recent renovation An extension was added with a modern kitchen and butler’s pantry There’s a magnesium pool and spa “Kim has always wanted to build a house,” the TV star said at the time. “So we’ve decided to sell this, bank the money and then take our time to look around for something else. “Whether we find an old home, knock it down and rebuild, we don’t care, we just want to have the time and space to do a good job,” he said. But with the construction industry hit by ongoing price rises and labour shortages, demand for prestige ready-to-move-into real estate remains strong despite the market downturn Their new home, a contemporary two-storey home on a 684sq m dry block, was marketed by Guy Powell, of Harcourts Coastal. The penthouse had oceanviews from the rooftop terrace.
