Jacinta McDonell, the entrepreneurial co-founder of Anytime Fitness Australia, and her partner, Matthew Connolly, founder of Concept Projects, have secured $7.35 million for their recently refurbished Woollahra home.

The buyer emerged in under two weeks of marketing.

Their renovation on View Street was a special one.

Every tradie they hired donated a percentage of their works contract to The Human Kind Project, a non-profit foundation that funds life-changing projects in Africa.

McDonnell set up the foundation in 2015 after visiting Malawi a year earlier.

The renovation raised more than $65,000 for the African community that the couple visited in 2017, shortly before they bought the home for $5.5 million.

The couple have named the renovated five-bedroom home Nchalo, after the community it supports in Malawi.

It was set to go to auction on August 31 with a $7 million price guidance.

Designed to capture Cooper Park views, the property is being marketed as “a calm and serene home with the incredible luxury of the best location’’.

The couple installed a lift which Phillips Pantzer Donnelley agents David Tyrrell and Alexander Phillips suggest is was what you “would expect in a high end renovation’’.

Brother and sister Jacinta and Justin McDonell’s fitness company started in Gunnedah when they opened the first Anytime Fitness in 2008.
