Model Zac Stenmark buys first home in Manly

Zac Stenmark, one of the twins of the popular modelling duo, let slip late last year he'd be moving out of home.

Now it's confirmed he has bought a Manly apartment, the first of the brothers to leave the family home at Mosman.

He has paid $965,000 for the two bedroom, two bathroom apartment in an early 80's block which selling agent Candice Cattell of Stone Real Estate had hopes of $1.05 million plus. 

The brothers have just starred in the Just Jeans clothing campaign with Australian beauty, Ashley Hart. They were also spotted in Bondi Beach with Ashley's older sister and Victoria's Secret model, Jessica shooting for an upcoming edition of Vogue Australia.

Zac's first home acquisition -  half way between the beach and the wharf - comes five years after he and his brother Jordan were discovered in 2011.

The chiselled twins were working in a cafe before a friend suggested they would make more money modelling.

The pair didn't realise what was to come, as they were immediately signed on by the Vivien agency at just 19 years of age and flown to Miami to shoot 60 pages for L'official Homme the following week.

The whirlwind never stopped.

After the shoot they were on a plane to London to meet with American fashion designer Tom Ford.

They made their international catwalk debut when they opened and closed the Calvin Klein S/S13 show at Milan Fashion Week in 2013.

They have worked with some of world’s best known brands like Abercrombie & Fitch and Ralph Lauren and have recently appeared in the David Jones Summer television commercial and their autumn winter launch parade alongside supermodel Miranda Kerr.

Now 23, the pair maintain their athletic stature by training with old friends from the Sydney Swans and the Greater Western Sydney teams, having being once handed AFL scholarships while at the University of Sydney.

The guys say they don't have telepathic connection, however Zac labelled themselves "mirror twins" as Zac is left handed and Jordan is right, a rare trait that only some twins have.

They do share an Instagram page however, a recent upload showing Zac in the Rod Laver Arena enjoying the Australian Open.

Despite Zac moving out, they still expect to see each other every day.

They were heard telling friends at the recent opening of the Rolex boutique at Crown Towers in Melbourne "we just won't be in adjoining rooms".

‘‘We’ll be saying ‘good night’ over the phone instead of through the wall,’’ Jordan Stenmark said. 

The apartment, which last traded at $248,000 in 1994, comes with a Greater Building Society mortgage to pay it off, so Zac will hope the phone keeps ringing.

Manly's average unit price is currently at a record $1.02 million according to CoreLogic RP Data.
