The sold sticker has gone up on radio host Jackie O’s extraordinarily beautiful Vaucluse home, which has sold tonight above its $6.5 million guide.
Ray White TRG principal Gavin Rubinstein was tight-lipped about the details when contacted due to a confidentiality agreement, however he said the purchaser was a local family represented by Ed Flitcrot of Chalk Road buyer’s agency.
The deal on the five-bedroom-three-bathroom home behind the white picket fence at 9 Cambridge Ave in the wake of the coronavirus crisis is just the latest in a string of sales by the Ray White TRG (The Rubinstein Group) team this week.
“This is an active market for people who want to transact,” Rubinstein told the Wentworth Courier exclusively.

He has also just exchanged on a terrace at 10 Glenview St, Paddington which sold in 48 hours above its $3.5 million guide to a family represented by Jayden Hurvitz of One Buyer’s Agency.
CoreLogic records show the popular ‘Kyle and Jackie O’ co-host bought the Vaucluse house on the 766 sqm block for $2.7 million in 2012.
It had originally been scheduled for a March 31 auction.
Jackie O and husband British photographer Lee Henderson, who separated on good terms in 2018, transformed the home with quality builders Horizon Habitats.
It’s now an up-to-the-minute family home with quality fixtures and fittings, full of northern light, with a chef’s kitchen with marble island benches and a Lacanche double oven.
The large open-plan living area opens to a sunny level back yard with a prized north-easterly aspect.
There’s a pool and cabana in manicured gardens.
Rubinstein says: “The current market is proving to be providing good opportunity for those who are serious about selling and those serious about buying.
“I’m extremely comfortable to represent my clients in a changing climate and so long as you have the right strategy you can get the deal done.”
He said the climate was changing daily.
”You must adapt and strike while the iron is hot — time and efficiency are key.
“And qualification is probably becoming the single most important aspect of being a real estate agent right now.
“The sales in the last week have proven that even in times of uncertainty and negativity in many areas, people still take confidence in putting their money in eastern suburbs real estate.”
