Mrs Australia 2012, Veronica Cristovao and her property developer husband Duarte have sold the second waterfront duplex in Chiswick.

The Cristovaos built the duplex on the prime north-facing site after having bought the land in 2010 in $3,655,000.

Duarte and Veronica founded Collingwood House, a property development & property management company.

The latest architect-designed residence on Abbotsford Bay features five bedrooms, four bathrooms, infinity pool and approval for shared jetty.

The home’s twin was sold two years ago for $3.6 million to downsizing greengrocer supremo Chris Parisi and his wife Emily. 

BresicWhitney agent Nicholas McEvoy was scheduled to take the latest offering to auction with $4.35 million plus hopes, but secured $4.85 million two days before the auction, the highest sale for a duplex on Fortesecue Street.

Happy with the profit they've made, the Cristovaos are already seeking their next project in the surrounding areas, with Woolwich and Drummoyne of interest.

Veronica also recently opened a children's store, Diamond Kids Boutique close by on Victoria Road.

Their Collingwood House website advises Veronica has a background in real estate and has studied interior design. Duarte is a licensed builder, learning the tools of the trade working alongside his father in property development.
