The Toorak home until recently owned by entertainer Jason Donovan has come onto the market, as a rental.
The UK-based Donovan sold the 4-bedroom English style home at 1 Torresdale Court early last month for about $2.7 million, pocketing a nifty profit on the $1.2 million he paid eight years earlier.
Marshall White is now marketing the property for lease at $1,500 per week.
Mr Donovan, with partner Angela Malloch and their two children, will live full time in Notting Hill where the actor has landed a role in the London stage version of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
The family is expected to eventually buy a smaller Melbourne base.
Also for rent is Beauciel – the former French Island holiday home of Donovan’s Neighbours co-star, Kylie Minogue and family. Beauciel sold in April for about $1 million to racing identity Graeme Little after more than a year on the market.
The luxury retreat, which must be accessed by boat or plane, can also be rented for just under $2,000 a week.
