Melbourne business scion Tony Smorgon and his wife Jennifer Smorgon have set a fresh record price for Melbourne homes after the sale of their Toorak mansion for a reputed $24 million plus.

The newly built seven-bedroom home at 4 Robertson Street was bought by Shirley Ching Hua Hsieh.

The property was sold in around three weeks through Marshall White agent Marcus Chiminello.

The house was designed by Casper Architecture & Design and Thomas Hamel Interiors and was offered with its specially designed furniture. The block cost $4.52 million in 2005.

This Toorak mansion is the most expensive house ever sold in Melbourne, but fell short of the Victorian record of $26 million at Portsea.

The Melbourne $24 million record was set by the sale of the former Baillieu family home at 39 St Georges Road, Toorak in 2010.

The old property, held for generations by the Baillieus, was bought by business scion Harry Stamoulis, who knocked it down to build a mansion which was recently completed.

Portsea’s historic Ilyuka, a Spanish-mission style clifftop estate, changed hands for a record-topping $26 million in 2010.
