The Cooke and Kin swimwear designer Olive Cooke and her builder husband Henry Tervenski, from MORADA build, have sold their latest luxury Byron Bay hinterland project, and are quickly onto the next.
They bought the 4055sqm Ewingsdale building block, with some approved $900,000 plans which they tweaked to create Currawong House, a mid-century-modern-inspired home by Davis Architects.
It’s a four-bedroom home flanked by a pool, as well as a self-contained studio set away from the main home.
The couple listed through Cape Byron agent Bryce Cameron, who after giving $6.5 million to $7 million price guidance, secured $6.3 million. It has 580sqm space under roof, including six bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The next project for the couple, who are just back from holidaying at Saint Tropez, is also in Ewingsdale.
The purchase price certainly highlights the boom of the last two years as they’ve paid $2.5 million for a 4615sqm block, just slightly bigger than their former site which cost $960,000 in 2020.
Their latest purchase was marketed by Glen Irwin and Peter Yopp at Byron Bay Real Estate Agency as one of the last blocks in the Figtree Fields estate with its north-east aspect having views to the mountains.
It was 2020 when they sold their first project, a cool 1970s style home at Lennox Head, south of Byron, for $1,375,000, having paid $320,000 for a 600sqm block of land in the master planned housing development Epiq Lennox.
Back then Cooke, who is originally from Western Australia, had 278,000 followers on Instagram.
It now sits at 302,000, seemingly not enough to warrant a ranking on the inaugural top 100 influencers list, The Influence Index, published exclusively by The Oz this week.
