Psychologist John Aiken, who pairs the Married At First Sight couples, and his wife, interior designer Kelly Swanson-Roe, have taken advantage of the ­resurgent lower north shore market.

They’ve sold their Willoughby East home for around $2.85 million, just five months after they had it listed for $2.3 million before pulling it from its April auction.

The property was sold by John Mc­Manus at McGrath to a buyer who had missed out on a home a few doors along at a recent $2.8 million sale.

The couple’s home has been extensively renovated over the past five years after they paid $1.86 million.

Swanson-Roe oversaw the renovation, modernising the home while keeping its traditional ­features such as its leadlight windows, high ornate ceilings and picture rails.

It has four bedrooms, and sits in 605 square metres of landscaped gardens, which ­include an alfresco terrace, firepit, spa and cubby house.

The couple, who met in New Zealand, moved to Sydney about a decade ago, buying in Waterloo. They are yet to find their next home.

Just two of the 13 couples from the sixth season of the Channel 9 reality TV show remain together.

The seventh season will be shot over the next few months.
