My Kitchen Rules leases Bellevue Hill mansion

My Kitchen Rules hosts Manu Feildel and Pete Evans

Producers of Network Seven’s reality TV show My Kitchen Rules have leased a modern home in Sydney’s east for a series.

The Mediterranean inspired property, 68 Drumalbyn Road, Bellevue Hill, will accommodate 10 contestants.

A planning application also seeks to allow 42 days of non-consecutive filming at the address – some of which require a drone.

Twenty cars and five vans, maximum, are expected to set up there

The home last sold for $12.51 million in 2015; it was once held by the Paspalay family.

The garden adjoins Thornton Reserve, over which it has Sydney Harbour aspect.

Filming for the show headed by Pete Evans and Manu Feildel is scheduled from July 1 to September 29.

The application claims the profile will deliver a financial benefit to the community – specifically because contestants will spend at two local supermarkets and other shops.

The property is near Le Manoir – the former French consulate Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch acquired from the French government for $23m in 2009 and renovated.

Seven years later the the couple paid $4.4m for a Drumalbyn Rd house near the one Seven has rented.

The garden has unobstructed Sydney Harbour views.
