F45 founder Rob Deutsch has bought himself a weekender in the Southern Highlands.

He's spent $4.8 million on the Burradoo trophy home Patchway, which had been for sale for nearly two years before Deutsche secured the keys to the 1930s home.

It had been owned by Ed Blackadder, the former managing director of merchant bank Hombres, and wife Elaine since 2014. They paid $4,175,000.

They bought it from the Wilson steel fabrication family. The Wilsons bought Patchway for $3.03 million in 2002 and carried out a seven-month renovation of the house. 

Inspired by classic English Georgian manor house architecture, Patchway dates back the 1930s when set on 20 acres. 

It now sits in prize-winning gardens of rhododendrons and azaleas on its 8900 sqm block. 

Built by the Eric Pratten, it was later owned by Neil and Beverley Cottee and then by Dan and Toni Regan.

The home has five bedrooms, a study and a stone paved north facing conservatory which opens to the outdoor entertaining terraces.

There's a grand entrance gallery with a distinctive cantilevered staircase which leads to three of the bedrooms, including the master suite that has its own dressing area, bathroom and private balcony.

The garden estate Lowenbrau which sold for $5.6 million in 2005 holds the Burradoo price record.

Deutsch has given up looking for a buyer for his lavish Bronte home. He paid $11.2 million for the home in 2018 and renovated, replacing the guest bedroom in the garage with an opulent cocktail bar.

Deutsch, a former equities trader, founded F45 in 2013 with personal trainer Luke Istomin.
