Having sold on the Rose Bay harbourfront, the songwriting guitarist Harry Vanda and his wife Robyn have turned up in Double Bay for the village lifestyle.

Paying $7.05 million for historic Teralla, a grand Victorian home whose past owners have included merchant banker Mark McIvor and Professor Ron Penny. 

The Vanda's had been on the Rose Bay property since paying $667,500 in 1983, then commissioning the five-bedroom home design.

Alison Coopes had the listing which sold to Breakfast Point developer Stuart Rose for around $15 million.

His co-written Easybeats song, Friday on My Mind was voted the best Australian song of all time at the 2001 Australasian Performing Rights Association awards.
