The KMPG partner Paul Howes and his wife Olivia Wirth, Qantas chief customer officer, have sold their home in Randwick.

There's whispers they are off to Bronte.

They bought the Randwick home in 2015 - in her name only - after they had been together three years.

The house had been previously designed by architect Bureau SRH, who transformed the Federation home in to a contemporary family residence.

The power couple, known as "Paulivia" paid $4.4 million to the 2015 vendors, Pacific Brands board member Kiera Grant and her husband, Salesforce's Mark Tallis.

The whisper quiet off market listing is tipped to have secured a $5.4 million sale.

Set on 490 sqm, the home is close to Centennial Park.

With a solar heated pool in manicured gardens, the main residence has four bedroom, while the fifth bedroom sits in a separate studio.

A master suite comes with study, dressing room and ensuite.

Howes and Wirth first public declaration of their relationship was in 2012 when they stepped out together on Derby Day during Melbourne's spring racing carnival.

The couple married in 2015 in the Byron Bay hinterland with the likes of Treasurer Joe Hockey, former PM Julia Gillard and Wirth's Qantas boss Alan Joyce in attendance.

The wedding venue was the Deux Belettes, a 16th century-style French chateau at Dalwood.

Earlier this year Wirth was made the first Qantas chief customer officer, having previously been group executive of brand, marketing and corporate affairs.

Howes became a partner at PWC in June, having spent 15 years in the Australian labour movement.

He spent seven years as the leader of The Australian Workers' Union, as well as holding roles as deputy chair and director of AustralianSuper.

Howes and his then lawyer ex-wife Lucy Mannering had a Leichhardt home that cost $775,000 in 2008.
