Justine Cullen, the recently married editor of Jones, the DJ's department store prestige fashion quarterly magazine, is yet to sell her Avalon Beach home of the past five years.

But despite its popular beachside chic design, like many Sydney vendors, she's facing the headwinds of ultra-cautious buying enthusiasm.

McGrath Avalon agents Jonathan Fletcher and James Baker gave an initial $2.1 million guide for its February auction, but the guidance had dropped to $1,975,000 before its weekend auction.

It now comes with a $1.82 million to $2 million price guidance.

Behind a white picket fence, the home has four bedrooms, separate lounge and dining spaces and a designer stone kitchen.

Cullen has owned the Avalon home since 2014 when she paid $1.46 million for a quaint 1950s fibro cottage.

Two years later she undertook a full scale designer renovation, which included expanding the living area of the home by carving an opening on one side, where a Mediterranean-style swimming pool now sits.

A staggered deck with custom built bar and barbecue leads down to the lawn and private garden sanctuary on the 570 square metre block.

Over the Christmas break Cullen, the former editor-in-chief of Elle Australia, married former TV presenter turned producer Hayden Guppy in Texas.

Cullen is expecting her fourth son in March, her first with Guppy. 

Their wedding came during a road trip across America. It involved stops off in Alabama, Montana and Mexico. 

She recently Instragammed she was getting "nostalgic and sentimental" ahead of selling her "beach shack which we’re officially about to outgrow".

They're leaving their "dream street", moving one street away.

It has been a busy time for Cullen whose first issue of Jones featured Fernanda Ly on the cover. The autumn magazine, released earlier this month, is aimed at their professional shoppers who have an average $136,000 household income which is $33,000 higher than the average population.
