Last traded for $717,500 in 2015, the one bedroom apartment features a sunroom.
The couple have been together four years. Friend runs menswear clothing line DearFriend & Co, a brand he set up with model mate Adin Taylor.
They have a store on Bondi’s Gould Street.
It’s Friend’s first property, but Roberta’s second foray into the Sydney property market.
She became a rentvestor last year, spending $588,888 on a one bedroom Annandale apartment which she promptly leased at $450 a week.
Pecoraro’s sister Jess, a popular Sydney fashion stylist, has been active in the property market too.
Earlier this year Jess sold a one bedroom North Bondi apartment for $1,625,000, having paid $1.16 million three years ago.
“It’s always fun working together — she’s my best friend,” Roberta said in an interview with Who What Wear earlier this year.
A budding dancer, Roberta fell into modelling at the age of 17, scouted through the Chic Model Management.
Friend is also represented to Chic Model Management.
Pecoraco opened Mercedes Benz Australian Fashion Week in May, having also opened last year for the Dion Lee show.
She has walked on catwalks for Camilla and Marc, We Are Kindred, Macgraw and Hansel and Gretel among others.
She says she’d love to walk for Gucci one day.
The two sisters grew up around fashion. Their mother was a designer in Italy until they migrated to Sydney.
