The South Yarra trophy home offering of celebrity chef Shannon Bennett and actor wife Madeleine West has come down from listing websites, presumably sold after offers fell due mid-week.

They listed Barwon, an updated 1880s home, having spent around $17 million on a Toorak mansion, a four level Lansell Road home sold by the Melbourne pub owner Mazen Tabet earlier this year.

The couple bought the Cromwell Road South Yarra home for $4,805,000 in 2012, upgrading from Kensington.

There were $7 million to $7.7 million price indications for the home which had a Jackson Clement Burrows' renovation and extension by the prior owner.

It came with five bedrooms. The new home comes with five “oversized” bedrooms, four ensuites plus a family bathroom.

Bennett and West are the parents of five daughters and one son. She has written a book on parenting called Six Under Eight.
