Sydney PR dynamo Roxy Jacenko has gone it alone in her latest property acquisition.

Legal paperwork shows Jacenko has settled in just her name on the recent $6,515,000 Vaucluse home purchase.

"That’s because I bought it," she said when asked what her thinking was to go with her name alone, and not with her husband, Oliver Curtis.

The mother of two has just commissioned Blainey North, Sydney's go-to property interior designer, to renovate the family home.

Jacenko and Curtis won't be move into the Vaucluse home until next year, continuing to rent their luxury North Bondi apartment over summer.

"Being in North Bondi is like being on vacation every day — the outlook, buzz and mix of people are great."

Jacenko has suggested of renting the luxury unit.

Hubbie Oliver Curtis will be overseeing the renovation project.

It will be undertaken by his brother in law, property developer Luke Calpis from Freehold Capital, and JCorp builder Jason Natoli.

The property is already a three level, six bedroom Andrew Baroukh Architects-designed mansion with Will Dangar-designed gardens and pool.

It has a number of harbour view terraces.

It's the fourth time North has been commissioned by the property devotee, having undertaken renovations at two former Woollahra properties.

"I have learnt to leave interiors to Blainey North after a few decorating disasters," Jacenko once told the Wentworth Courier.

North was also asked to fit out Jacenko's Sweaty Betty PR offices in Paddington which were completed earlier this year.

After the home was bought at September auction, she posted video to Instragam of her breaking the news to her excited kids Pixie and Hunter that they'll be back soon living in a house.

They haven't been in a house since selling out of Woollahra in 2014, including a stint at the Intercontinental in Double Bay during Curtis' imprisonment for insider trading, which took place before they ever knew each other.

Their previous Edward Street, Woollahra home had been jointly owned.

Jacenko made her first property purchase aged 20.

It was a $336,000 Double Bay apartment.

Her stockbroker husband has preferred renting, with his only known acquisition to be when buying with Roxy for $6.6 million in 2011 on Edward Street
