Stephen, Jo Silvagni finally move Balwyn North home

The Hosken Street home was listed in February with an $8-$8.8 million guide.


Former AFL player Stephen Silvagni and television personality, Jo Silvagni, have finally moved their Balwyn North family home.

The Silvagnis built the Hosken Street home in 2004.

The European inspired triple storey dwelling with a tennis court at 25 Hosken Street, was listed in February with price hopes of $8-$8.8 million, potentially a suburb record result.

However in recent weeks the guide was adjusted to $7.35m.

Marshall White’s Marcus Chiminello and Mandy Zhu were the listing agents however colleagues Hamish Tostevin and William Chen’s names replaced them on the campaign, now marked sold.

The highest price paid for a Balwyn North home was set in January when 18 Ferdinand Avenue traded for $8.6m.

For eight months prior to that, 9 Chelmsford Street held the accolade – at $7.6m.

Era ends at Balwyn North

Developed by the Silvagnis in 2004, the Balwyn North home contains five bedrooms, a study, basement gym and five car garage (story continues below).

Record holder: 18 Ferdinand Avenue traded for $8.6 million in January.

There are also formal and informal lounge and dining rooms.

The 1878 square metre block is near Jacka Street Reserve.

The two married in 1996 – five years before the former AFL-linked identity retired from Carlton after 312 games.

Ms Silvagni, nee Bailey, was a model, replacing Alyce Platt in Sale of the Century in 1991, aged 20.

They have three sons including Jack, a professional player since 2015 – also with the Blues.

Stephen’s father, Sergio, the first generation of the family to play with the team, died in 2021 aged 83.
