Tracey Bartholomew, wife of big punter Sean Bartholomew, has listed their luxury Vaucluse home.

The three-level residence is on a 1056 square metre block with gardens by Paul Bangay.

Its second storey allows a 360 panorama of the Pacific Ocean, Sydney Harbour and city skyline.

Ray White’s Gavin Rubinstein has it scheduled for a December 12 auction.

Designed by architect Michael Suttor, the home came with interiors by Cameron Kimber after its 2011 completion.

Tracey had paid $8.8 million for the home in 2013 when it was bought from Baydon Fischer, the Asia Pacific head of trading for Dutch derivatives company Optiver, and his wife, Megan.

The Fischer family built the five-bedroom house after buying the property for $4.7 million in 2008 from developer Bryan Rose from Rose Group.

It had been a large four bedroom Californian bungalow with huge rear garden that had previously been a tennis court when it was sold in 2008.

Bartholomew's business, Racing Odds which was well known in the industry for its ability to take on larger bets, was acquired by Sportsbet in 2009.

Sean Bartholomew kicked off his career in the Sydney betting rings working for bookmaker Warren Woodcock, later becoming a commission agent.

He calls himself a statistics punter.

Recent Vaucluse sales have included property developer Denis O’Neil and his interior designer wife Charlotte who bought on the clifftop at Vaucluse listed by Ray White Double Bay’s Elliott Placks and Ashley Bierman who were asking $5.5 million.

The Vaucluse home of Westpac senior executive Michael Correa and his stylist wife Heidi Carter has sold for around $7.15 million, well up on the $4.9 million they paid three years ago when it was bought from former prima ballerina Darcey Bussell and her fund manager husband Angus Forbes.

On the Gibsons Beach home of former Deutsche Bank managing director Matt Milsom has sold through Ray White’s Gavin Rubinstein.
