Killcare offering with Thomas Hamel interiors for sale

The stylish former Killcare retreat of interior designer Thomas Hamel was pulled from its scheduled auction yesterday by its current owners, Robert Tsenin and his wife Estelle.

Their designer digs overlooking the bay and the beach now comes with a $1,699,000 asking price.

The couple bought it in 2003 for $1.47 million from interior designer Thomas Hamel and his then partner, the antique dealer Martyn Cook.

The pre-auction price guidance for the two-storey weekender had been $1.7 million to $1.8 million through Cathy Baker, of Belle Property Killcare.

Occupying an elevated position, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house has views in two directions, back towards Sydney from the sandstone front balcony and over to Hardys Bay from the full-length hardwood terrace at the rear.

The property, refurbished in 2000, has succulent garden.

Estelle and Robert Tsenin, a former managing director of Goldman Sachs Australia, maintain a penthouse at Sydney Wharf.

Perpetual chief Geoff Lloyd set a record for the Central Coast beachside location last year at $5 million when he bought from coffee queen, Clelia Cantarella, with his redundant weekender recently offloaded at $2.75 million to the Cotton family. 

It had been a $6500 weekly prime summer rental.
