Gogglebox favourite Isabelle Silbery has sold the Hampton house where she has filmed the hit show alongside mum Kerry and grandma Emmie.
The California bungalow sold off-market for an undisclosed price near the top of Silbery’s $2.3-$2.4m asking range before she even had the chance to officially list it.
The deal caps off a big 2020 for the TV personality, who got engaged to boyfriend Alex Richards in July, following a whirlwind four-month romance.
It’s understood the couple has snapped up a new home together — Silbery’s friend, Big Brother winner Ben Norris, let slip on the TV Blackbox podcast in August that she had “bought a million-dollar mansion to celebrate (her) engagement”.
Marshall White Bayside director Matthew Pillios said the sale had followed Silbery starting “a new chapter in her life”.
And the lucky buyers — a family from outside the Bayside region — would be moving into a home well known to TV viewers.
The family was one of a dozen parties Mr Pillios showed through the single-level, four-bedroom period house within five days “just before we were going to list it online”.
This sparked an offer, which led to “an auction-style environment” in which two parties competed for the home, he said.
“This created a great result for our high-profile vendor, who was very happy,” he said.
CoreLogic records show the property last changed hands in 2015 for $1.64m.
Mr Pillios said Silbery and her family had “probably spent $70,000-$100,000” on the house since, updating the interior, fully painting it, and landscaping the front and back yards.
The buyers intended to add a pool out back.
The private property occupied a quiet street “with no passing traffic”, and offered multiple living zones ideal for entertaining, the agent added.
Silbery’s grandmother and fellow Gogglebox star, Emmie, has listed her Caulfield North apartment a couple of times in recent years without a sale, CoreLogic records show.
The matriarch is taking a break from season 12 of the Channel 10 show, to remain isolated at home due to COVID-19.
And it was revealed this week another reality show is coming to Hampton, although The Block is yet to officially confirm this.
