The long-held Belrose estate of former Coca-Cola Amatil chief executive Dean Wills has been sold to the daughter of a South African rich-lister.

The grand three-level trophy home fetched $8 million when bought by Luciana Ravazzotti and her husband Pierre ­Langenhoven.

Her father, Giovanni Ravazzotti, the founder of tiler and bathware retailer Italtile, is ranked as one of South ­Africa’s richest. The family has expansive investments in Australian cattle farms. The couple have listed their home in Seaforth.

The six-bedroom mansion, complete with a pool, tennis court, and 12-car showroom-style garage as befitted Wills’ eclectic car collection, was ­offered through Sydney Country Living agent Brian McMillan. There was also the art studio of his late wife, Margaret.

The grand residence on 9490sqm last traded in 1994 for $2.55 million.

Wills’ 46-year business ­career began in 1933, when he earned 37 shillings and sixpence a week at the SA Gas Company.
