Jono Deague lists six star styled South Yarra residence with $5 million plus hopes

Property entrepreneur Jono Deague and his wife, photographer Ella are preparing to leave their contemporary South Yarra residence of seven years.

The couple undertook a major renovation on the Millswyn Street property when they moved into the Botantic Gardens precinct.

The four bedroom home became a three bedroom, opening up more space throughout the residence which was built on the 415 square metre block which cost around $3 million in late 2006.

It comes with a spa, pool, cellar, gymnasium, and four car underground garage.

Jono (Jonathan) Deague is the executive director at Asia Pacific Group, which owns the Art Series Hotel Group, a collection of boutique hotels that includes the renowned Blackman Hotel on St Kilda Road, Cullen Hotel in Prahran, and Olsen Hotel in South Yarra.

Ella is a photographer, working in interior design and architecture.

"The vast main bedroom suite resembles that of a six star hotel complete with sumptuous ensuite and walk in wardrobe," the marketing suggests.

Set close to the CBD and a few minutes’ walk to FAWKNER Park and Royal Botanic Gardens, the property comes with $5 million plus hopes through Kay & Burton agents Michael Armstrong and Michael Gibson.

Offers are due by May 7.

Title Tattle gleans the street's highest price was achieved in April last year with a traditional Victorian era home sale. The Calvert-Jones family secured $8.85 million.

It came with a $9.5 million asking price.

The five bedroom Victorian era house on its 7,879 square metre holding had been owned for two decades since bought for around $1 million by David Calvert-Jones, son of Janet, and his wife, Karina. They had regularly lived in Los Angeles from around 2005 given his role as chief executive of Helinet Aviation Services. The company has worked on many blockbuster films, with helicopters outfitted as camera platforms, including Transformers.

Known in Melbourne for his Portsea polo pursuit, CJ, as David Calvert-Jones prefers to be addressed, now races laps around the famed street course as a race car driver in the American Le Mans series starting his rookie season in the GT Challenge (GTC) class.
