With her passion for restor­ation projects in Italy, the fashion designer turned tourism property entrepreneur Collette Dinnigan is selling her Paddington charmer.

It’s the Mary Place investment terrace bought from her brother, creative director Seamus Dinnigan, for $1,925,000 in 2017.

The popular rental is a rare 1850s freestanding cottage spanning just 70 sqm of internal space. The terrace with two bedrooms and one bathroom has been listed by Ivan Bresic at BresicWhitney.

Seamus Dinnigan had bought the home for $1.08 million in 2015 from gallery owner Evan Hughes and his lawyer wife, Kate.

Dinnigan quit the fashion world after 24 years in 2014, and turned to real estate with her entrepreneurial husband Bradley Cocks. They’re spending more and more time in Italy.

Initially the couple was renovating a 100-year-old farmhouse in Puglia, and are keen to take on other projects.

They retain a Darling Point bolthole, along with retreats in the Southern Highlands and at Milton on the NSW south coast.

Further south their stylish Rosedale Airbnb cottage was burnt down during the summer bushfires. It was incinerated on New Year’s Eve along with most of the houses in the clifftop precinct.
