Celebrity television renovation show stylist and former Vogue Living editor Robyn Holt and her husband, the actor Jim Holt sold their Woollahra home last March for $3.75 million to the Wang family.

The property was pulled unsold from the weekend's damp auction, just 12 months on from its bullish sale.

The top pre-auction offer was advised as $4.025 million.

This week it was suggested Sydney house prices had rocketed 18 percent over the past 12 months, though clearly not if you overpaid then.  

Designed by renowned 1930s architect F. Glynn Gilling, the three bedroom home has a private courtyard garden on its 250 sqm Wallaroy Road holding.

The Holt's had bought from DSC Personnel boss Tom Smith for $1.71 million for 2002, shortly before the family moved to Russia following Robyn's appointment as chief executive of Conde Nast to launch Vogue Russia. 

They have recently relocated to a $1.175 million Exeter, Southern Highlands retreat, along with an $880,000 bolthole in the Rex at Kings Cross.
