Icilus at Woollahra sells after $13 million hopes

Former coal baron Brendan McPherson and wife Rowena have sold Icilus, their luxury Woollahra trophy.

The Ocean Street home, that featured in Vogue Living after its Thomas Hamel makeover, had $13 million to $13.5 million price hopes through Ben Collier at The Agency.

The property was the hottest on realestate.com.au in the eastern suburbs during one week of the campaign.

It sold on the eve of the campaign conclusion.

Built in the 1880s, Icilus has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a studio, home offices and eight fireplaces.

Brendan and Rowena paid $8 million for the home in 2010 when they bought from the late media chief Ian Law and his wife Roslyn.

They had bought it for $6.8 million in 2006 from Dion Werbeloff, the chief operating officer at Goldman Sachs JB Were, and his wife, Caroline Ralph-Smith.

Prior to working at the Donaldson and Gloucester coal companies, McPherson worked with the Gas & Fuel Corporation of Victoria.

These days McPherson runs the Rose Bay Regatta restaurant. They're upgrading to Bellevue Hill.
