Belhaven, the Bellevue Hill trophy home of businessman Stephen Johns and wife Michele Bender, has come down from the listing website with strong whispers it's finally sold

The Victoria Road home, updated by Howard Tanner, had around $25 million plus hopes. It has apparently instead sold at an underwhelming $22 million.

Johns, the Brambles chairman, paid $4.5 million for the home in 1989.

It was built for the Sunday Times newspaper owner and showbiz entrepreneur Hugh “Huge Deal” Macintosh. From 1942 to 1948 it was run as the Belhaven Babies Home.

Belhaven has been redundant since Johns paid $16 million for the Darling Point apartment of Silicon Valley software billionaire David Doyle.

The unit in the Burley Katon Halliday designed project was minimalist in design.
