Recruitment boss Phil Kerry and his wife, 1984 Olympic Games gymnast Anne-Maree, have reputedly secured their next eastern suburbs home renovation project.

It is the 1880s Victorian Regency trophy mansion, Larissa in Woollahra, which Sam Towndrow and Mark Lowe at Ballard Property sold for the Benevolent Society after 40 years of ownership.

The $8.5 million Nelson St offering was listed last spring when the heritage-listed building was in use as a childcare centre. It was a tough one to sell as the front facade of the seven-bedroom house faces away from the street.

The Kerrys recently sold Darling Point’s Greenoaks Cottage for $18 million-plus also after a year on the market. It was built in 1850 for industrialist Thomas Mort.
