Eastern suburbs buy for new Google boss Melanie Silva
Title TattleDecember 7, 2020

The recently appointed boss of Google in Australia, Melanie Silva, and her husband Marcelo, have bought in Sydney’s east.

The couple have emerged as $5 million-plus buyers in Dover Heights.

The Blacktown-born Silva, who grew up in what she has described as “really humble beginnings” in Kings Langley, has secured a home that spans four levels with an internal lift.

There’s a double-sided fireplace that separates the living and family areas on the ground level.

The top level comprises the master suite, complete with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.

The home comes with views across Sydney Harbour.

It sold through Ray White’s top-selling agent Gavin Rubinstein.

The four-bedroom home had fetched $4.6 million three years ago.

Silva, who attended high school in Parramatta and then studied for an economics degree at Macquarie University, took the top job at Google last October.

She secured the up-market property on her return to Sydney from Singapore where she was posted in 2016 for two years.
