KIIS FM’s brash breakfast broadcaster Kyle Sandilands and his expectant fiancee Tegan Kynaston have taken up a pricey Bellevue Hill rental ahead of the arrival of their baby boy.
Their recently vacated Edgecliff rental abode has returned to the market following their shuffle from stately manor to modern Tuscan in Sydney’s east.
There were telltale signs of their occupancy with the Bellevue Hill garage complete with boxes of Nueva Sangria, the drink brand which teetotaller Sandilands established in 2019.
The hillside home, offered as an $8000-a-week rental, was billed as “the blending of luxury with Tuscan classicism”. It happened to have been recently sold which prompted some ill-informed speculation it had been a purchase by Sandilands.
The sale by Roy and Maria Metaxas for $13,808,900 was to investor Rosheeni Dobbie.
The home, with formal and casual living areas, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, plus a high-end Calacatta marble kitchen and a temperature-controlled wine cellar.
There’s a vergola-covered indoor pool, which opens to a terrace with a northerly harbour view.
The home is kitted out with a smart home system, which Sandilands admitted to his KIIS listeners had been a struggle to get his head around.
His electric blinds failed to work, with the sun beaming through the windows.
Four tradies working from down the road apparently turned up to help out – helpfully changing the flat batteries of the remote.
Sandilands’ former rental in Edgecliff has just been relisted at $5500 a week.
Merdin, the seven-bedroom home, dates back to 1910. It has three levels, plus a pool in its 1094 sqm grounds. Michael Murray at Murray Property is handling the Edgecliff Rd rental again.
When it was last up for rent in mid-2020, Sandilands snapped it up at around $4950 a week.
Sandilands is set to relocate to a Hills district estate after his time at Bellevue Hill.
It follows his recent hush-hush purchase in the Hills.
He apparently intends to build a Hamptons-style home on the acreage.
He’s previously rented acreage with a Mediterranean-style home at Oxford Falls, and Symingtonia in Terrey Hills, which been previously rented by Channel 10 to film The Biggest Loser.
“In the past, I didn’t want to lock down anywhere because I wanted to be able to go and live in LA for a few years or maybe London,” he told James Manning at Media Week last month.
“I didn’t want to be handcuffed to the dream home.”
