Radio veteran Jackie ‘O’ Henderson nee Last has paid $13.25 million – $1.25m over reserve – for a renovation rescue overlooking Gordons Bay in Clovelly.
The three level home on 492 square metres at 2 Cliffbrook Parade was offloaded by JP Morgan Chase managing director Kierin Deeming and his wife, Justine Hall, who outlaid $6.01m in November, 2019 then obtained a permit for a dramatic home, effectively a new build.
The property failed to sell when it was listed last March – the Deemings pulled it off the market after 73 days.
It was relisted for auction last month with a $9m–plus guide.
PPD Real Estate’s Alexander Phillips and David Tyrrel were the agents.
Out with the new, in with the old
Developed in 1960, the Clovelly home contains seven bedrooms, three living areas, three bathrooms and a double garage (story continues below).
It is also one of a handful of properties in the suburb with direct access to the coastal walk from Bondi to Bronte.
Ms Henderson outbid two suitors before a crowd of about 80.
The media personality, who has also worked in television, will relocate from the uber contemporary Cooper Park House, at 64 Edward Street, Woollahra, which sold earlier this month for what sources say is a $1m-plus windfall on the $11m she paid stockbroker Angus Aitken and his wife, Sarah, in 2020 – just three days after it hit the market.
Ms Henderson separated from photographer Lee Henderson in 2018, after which the pair sold a Vaucluse home on Cambridge St for $6.675m.
The KIISFM radio host, who turned 48 in January, was also once married to Phil O’Neill, with who she started her radio career in the 1990s.
