The Melbourne-bound chef Martin Benn and partner, Sepia’s front of house manager Vicki Wild (right), have secured tenants for their ­vacated Sydney home.

The Gladesville home had a rental asking price of $1750 a week.

The couple bought the 1900s renovated brick cottage in 2015 for $2.5 million upgrading from their Rozelle apartment which sold for $1.06 million.

Set on 685sqm, the Gladesville home has five bedrooms and a solar-heated pool.

The couple are heading south after veteran restaurateur Chris Lucas, owner of the Chin Chin chain, convinced them to come to Melbourne where they will establish a fine-dining restaurant, due to open in 2020.

Their three-hat restaurant Sepia in the Sydney CBD, which closes in a fortnight, has been operating since 2009.

The most famous restaurant couple in Australia have only ever worked and lived together, excepting for one short stint in Hong Kong.

Last year Lucas, the king of Melbourne casual dining, bought a $3.4 million bolthole in Potts Point ahead of the opening of the Chin Chin restaurant on the ground floor of the Griffiths Teas Building on Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills.
