Danny Pavlovich, an entrepreneur and former elite bodybuilder, and his wife Suzie are set to emerge as the buyer of the iconic Dalkeith mansion once owned by late entrepreneur Alan Bond.

Their $27.5 million offer was accepted by its vendor, Sue Wyatt, who bought the property with her then-husband Steve for $39 million in 2011.

Pavlochich came to national attention when he was in the final stages of selling Nutrition Systems, a distributor of sport supplements & nutritional products, to OBJ for $85 million late last year when COVID-19 hit and the deal fell through. 

Established in 1991, Nutrition Systems was one of the first companies in Australia to import health, wellness and sports nutritional products from the United States of America.

Pavlovich, 51, has twice been a finalist in the EY Entrepreneur of the Year competition.

He also won the 2017 ICN World Natural Bodybuilding Championship. 

The 6,405 sqm was subdivided in to six parcels, but sold in one line. 

Originally designed by renowned Perth architect Geoffrey Summerhayes and updated by Andrew Boughton, the 6406sqm estate is spread over six titles on a quiet cul-de-sac and takes in 270-degree views of the Swan River.

The iconic 3000sqm house is probably the most opulent property in WA, with six bedrooms, a 21-seat home theatre, a ballroom for 400 guests, a 10,000-bottle wine cellar, three luxury kitchens, 17 toilets, a gym, a billiards room, a sauna, a pool house, a children’s playroom, underground parking for 12 cars, a tennis court and a resort-style pool with swim-up bar.

The Pavlovich's will be moving from Nedlands where he only recently had a mansion built. 

It was sold by Bond's daughter Jody Fewster declined to confirm the sale price or the identity of the new owners.

“I don’t have any emotional attachment to the house other than a lot of memories of fantastic parties and [having] lots of friends over,” Ms Fewster said.

“It was so much fun for me to sell because it’s full of great memories – I got married on the tennis court and my husband proposed to me there."
