Celebrity chef Bill Granger and wife Natalie Elliot have put their oceanfront home in Tamarama up for sale, just a year after its purchase.

The classic three storey coastal home with expansive entertainers terrace offers panoramic views of Mackenzie's Bay being just metres from Tamarama Beach.  

It's been listed through Pauline Goodyear of Goodyear Real Estate who has a buyer's guide of $5.5 million for its August 6 auction, so after stamp duty costs there might be a $400,000 profit. 

Goodyer sold it to them for $4.805 million in early 2015.

Their purchase followed the sale of a 1920s Californian bungalow in Bronte for $3.4 million.

The couple spend most of their time in the W2 London postcode with their three daughters and they no longer need such a large home in Sydney.

They now plan on purchasing a smaller Sydney property, more than likely on the Northern Beaches in a more holiday style location.

The couple have been somewhat erratic in their property acquisitions as they briefly owned the iconic Harry Seidler-Designed Gissing House in Wahroonga.

They bought it in February 2008 for $2.65 million then shipped it off just six months later for $2.66 million to photographer Chris Colls and his wife Katrina. 

Granger, originally from Melbourne, has Bills cafes now in Japan, Hawaii, Seoul and London.

The Fleet Street press call him the sunny Australian chef who after making the move in 2012 to open Granger & Co in Notting Hill has recently launched his third London restaurant at King’s Cross on Pancras Square.

The globetrotting Granger got his training at the iconic La Passion du Fruit on Oxford Street after hailing from Melbourne.

Tamarama has seen 22 sales this year with the highest coming when Oporto co-founder Gary Linz sold his three bedroom entertainer for $4.15 million 

Robbie Ingham has yet to secure a sale further down the street, with his $6 million new build still sitting on the market with $12 million plus hopes.
