Negotiations for Sydney’s own exclusive Versace home are nearing an end with a number of serious offers currently on the table.
Rumour has it an offer of $1,375,000 has been made for the western Sydney property without the Versace-inspired furniture and additions.
Sources claim the current owner is looking for between $1,450,000 and $1,475,000 for complete sale of the home with the Versace-inspired inclusions.
The home was first listed October 21 2019 in advance of a November 2 auction, however the property failed to sell.
Homeowners John and Debbie Tsikouris spent eight years converting their Casula property into the ultimate Versace trophy home.
The Versace mansion includes Greek-style pillars and arches, unusual mixes of colour, chandeliers, floor mosaics, statues and elaborate wall decorations.
In trying to replicate that style, it was estimated Mr Tsikouris’ Versace inclusions cost at least $380,000 but the unique nature of the fittings meant they were almost impossible to value.
He was quoted as saying the three-bedroom home on 318 sqm isn’t for everyone and is a show home you either love or hate.
“My wife and I are Versace fanatics,” he said.
“This house looks like a museum and it has taken a lot of hard work … we will be sad to see it gone.”
