There’s always much interest in the Potts Point properties owned by gemologist and property lover Heidi Onisforou — the buyer of her latest has been revealed tonight.
Updated property records on today’s settlement of her grand terrace at 102 Victoria St show the purchasers are David Knight and his wife, Sandra.
Mr Knight owns a logistics company called DK Locations and Production Services.
The agent to lock in the $5.5 million deal on August 7 on the heritage terrace with the stunning renovation was BresicWhitney co-founder Shannan Whitney, with director Maclay Longhurst.
At the time, all that was known about the purchasers was that they were based on the north shore.
But, as always about big property sales, there’d been much speculation in Potts Point circles about who exactly the buyer of the stunning home was.
Locals have managed to glean that Mr Knight and his Swiss-born wife have recently sold in Longueville, have a farm in the Hunter Valley and are looking forward to making the Potts Point terrace their city base.
At the time of the sale, Ms Onisforou exclusively told the Wentworth Courier: “I’m now on the lookout for something to tackle — residential or commercial — something super dilapidated!”
She couldn’t be contacted tonight to establish whether she’s had any luck with her search.
The four-bedroom home at 102 Victoria St had the usual high-quality Heidi Onisforou signature look, with expensive Poliform joinery in the kitchen, solid American oak floors, lots of mirrors and grand crystal chandeliers.
The terrace has been on the market for about three months but the result wasn’t far off the $5.75m price guide that Mr Longhurst was quoting when the Wentworth Courier reported the listing in May.
The terrace is a smaller version of the one she lavishly renovated in Challis Ave, that broke the national record for a terrace at the time when it sold for $13 million.
Ms Onisforou has now decided to keep the Macleay St apartment that was listed in February, opting to live in it.
