47 Lansell Road Auction

$44 Million Toorak Mansion Smashes Australian Auction Record

The elite suburb of Toorak is no stranger to high-priced homes, with listings in the tens of millions a common occurrence. However, local residents have been spotted choking on their almond latte’s after 47 Lansell Road smashed the country’s auction record, selling for AUD$44 million, and now holds the title as the most expensive property in Toorak. Normally, luxury properties such as this would be discreetly negotiated, but it is believed bidding took place in a private affair between a few very deep-pocketed individuals.

47 Lansell Road Auction

The previous Australian auction record was AUD$24.6 million for a harbour view property in Sydney’s Vaucluse. Sold last September, the house jumped $10 million over the reserve, clearing the prior record of $23 million for a Sydney mansion, located in Bellevue Hill, purchased in 2009 by Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch.

The Lansell Road address sold off-market for roughly AUD$20 million in 2015, and was treated to an AUD$15 million renovation. London’s Helen Green Design Studio led the makeover team, along with Carr Design architecture firm and renowned landscaper Paul Bangay. According to public title documents, the vendor was Kelly Healey, wife of businessman Mark Healey, the son of British shopping centre billionaire Eddie Healey.
