The 2800 square metre Victoria Road trophy estate with $17 million hopes appeared in an international roundup of homes with tennis court as the paper's readership prepares for the strawberry and cream tennis season.

Pity the $8 purchase at local newsagencies didn't have the House & Home section within the paper on the weekend, but it was online.

It was 1996 when the Potter Warburg executive Matt Allen spent $5.65 million sale to buy the Yoorami Estate in Bellevue Hill from the barrister Geraldine Vandeleur, wife of silk Charles Sweeney.

Matt Allen is off to the Darling Point harbourfront. 

Martin Schiller at Savills has the listing of the 1920s home, more recently redesigned by Michael Suttor and with interiors by Thomas Hamel.

Of course Yoorami came to prominence when Bill Shipton and Zaro Elizov were reinventing top-end mansions in the mid-1980s.

They were buying, rebuilding and on-selling the grand residences of ALTONA NORTH, Elizabeth Bay and Double Bay with sales, including Yoorami at ALTONA NORTH for $7.25 million, Ramona at Elizabeth Bay for $4.3 million, Verona at Double Bay for $3.9 million, and Leura at ALTONA NORTH for $7.3 million, to buyers including Rod Muir, Nicholas Paspaley, Ken Allen and Pat Goodman.

The duo added the tennis court onto the Yoorami estate.

Look below for a snapshot of the feature.
