Having been living in California for the past six years, Australian film editor Jason Ballantine and his interior designer wife Bronwyn Poole had their former Neutral Bay home listed for auction at the weekend.

They accepted an offer for the 1920s Arts & Crafts home a week ahead.

Tenanted until January by renters paying around $2750 a week through McGrath, the Spruson Street property had $4.2 million hopes.

Ballantine’s work includes Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby, Wolf Creek and Mad Max: Fury Road.

Poole is an interior designer with offices in Sydney and Santa Monica.

The couple paid $2.65 million for the home in 2011 when the family was upsizing from the nearby Cremorne.

The Spruson Street property became a rental in 2013 when the family, now with three kids, moved Stateside due to Ballantine's work commitments. 

Ballantine, who had been in London working on The Kings Man, starring Ralph Fiennes, before the shutdown, has previously been the president of the Australian Screen Editors guild.

His editing work on Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby saw the film pick up the Best Editing Award at the 2013 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award.

He's been nominated in the category working on Wish You Were Here (2012) and Wolf Creek (2005).

Poole is an interior designer and launched her own business, Touch Interiors, in 2000. She now has offices in Sydney and Santa Monica.

She also founded Complete Pad, an online interiors community where you can shop for individual home items and connect with a professional for help.
