The matrimonial home of Vanuatu-based Today show weatherman Steve Jacobs and estranged wife Rose has sold before this weekend's scheduled auction.

It fetched $4,612,000.

The former couple, whose split emerged in the Sunday Telegraph just a few weeks ago, were seeking between $4 million and $4.4 million.

Steve and Rose had been together for 11 years before Sydney Confidential confirmed last month they had gone their separate ways.

In happier times the two news readers paid $2.55 million for the home after trading up from their former Coogee property, the one they bought upon leaving Melbourne in 2008.

Initially they bought a three-bedroom home but upgraded in 2011, paying $2.55 million.
 
Upon their move to the Vanuatu in 2016 with their two daughter Isabella and Francesca, the Coogee home became a $3500-a-week rental.
 
The contemporary three-level home at the southern end of the beach has four bedrooms as well as a separate studio room above the garage.

The master retreat spans the whole top floor and comes with an ensuite, dressing room and terrace with views of the ocean.
 
Ballard Property Group Double Bay agents James Ball and Shane Scicluna secured the sale.

There's no sign of Jacobs returning anytime soon, with the parents focus now solely on their children.

Jacobs recently took the girls out on a fishing trip in the crystal blue waters.

Accompany an Instagram photo of a fishing boat, Jacobs wrote "We are off to explore a private island to look for coconut crabs. Kids are so excited."

Jacobs managed to renegotiate his work schedule to become a part-time member of the Today Show. It's just a three hour flight between Sydney and the South Pacific Island.
 
He had been fulltime in the Monday to Friday Today team for 12 years.
