The celebrated international novelist Derek Hansen and wife Carole have sold their long held Avalon home before its scheduled auction.

It was sold through Raine & Horne James Baker who had price guidance of $4 million to $4.4 million.

They had owned the three bedroom home for 25 years having paid $910,000 in 1991. It was later refurbished by Alex Popov.

Derek is best known for his Lunch with ... novel series, as well as the likes of the Perfect Couple, Remember Me and Blockade to name a few.

The 975 sqm parcel comes with an inclinator which leads to a boathouse.

Derek's wife Carole is a former Mosman retailer who specialised in Art Deco china, especially Clarice Cliff. In 1995, she co-wrote Tea And Sympathy with her husband.
