Sunrise presenter Natalie­ Barr has bought back in to Mosman, a year after she sold her last home.

This is the third house she and her husband, TV commercial­ editor Andrew Thompson have owned in the pricey suburb.

While the ink hasn’t yet dried on the purchasing paperwork, they are tipped to have paid somewhere near its $2.8 million guide.

The renovated 1920s home on 430 square metres, behind a picket-fenced front garden and classic facade, has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Upstairs there’s a full-floor parents retreat with an ensuite.

Its asking price was consistent during its lengthy 400 days on the market.

The couple and their two sons have rented in Mosman since selling their nearby Federation­ home for $3.6 million last December.

Barr has been at Seven for more than two decades, having joined Seven News as a reporter in 1994.

She’s been the news presenter on Sunrise since 2003. Mosman is the location­ where fellow Sunrise panellist Mark Beretta has lived and also traded homes for a number of years.

The suburb has also been popular among presenters at the besieged Nine Network.

The recently departed Today host Georgie Gardner moved in to a $6 million home last year.

Sonia Kruger, who is jumping from Nine to Seven, also calls Mosman home.

And Karl Stefanovic rents there with his wife, designer Jasmine.

The Barr family has been renting a five-bedroom home near Sirius Cove for about $2500 a week.

Their previous abode was a 1910 home which had been renovated after they paid $3,235,000.

The couple were upsizing at the time, selling their nearby first Mosman home for $2,891,999.

They had paid $1.28 million in 2002.

Mosman’s four-bedroom median price is currently $3.6 million. Mosman has 117 properties for sale listed on realestate­.com.au.

Based on five years of sales, Mosman has seen a compound growth rate of 5.7 per cent for houses.

It’s the busiest auction suburb­ this weekend, according to CoreLogic, with 17 homes under the hammer.
