Nick Leos and wife Emma sell Luigi Rosselli-designed Bellevue Hill mansion for rumoured $26 million

6 Rupertswood Ave, Bellevue Hill has sold for a rumoured $26m.

Construction boss Nick Leos and his wife, Emma, have sold their Luigi Rosselli-designed Bellevue Hill mansion for $2m less than the price guide but still $10m more than they bought it for, four years ago.

The couple, who are returning to hometown Melbourne, apparently because they were unhappy with the quality of education in NSW, sold the Rupertswood Ave home via Steven Chen of The Agency in conjunction with Michael Pallier of Sotheby’s.

Buyer’s agent Simon Cohen represented the buyer, understood to be an expat returning to Sydney.

The agents can’t reveal the sale price due to confidentiality agreements.

But other sources are dead certain it was $26m.

The Leos family bought it for $16.5m on Christmas Eve, 2018 from fashion designer Camilla Freeman-Topper and her husband, David Topper.

It was those previous owners who’d done the Rosselli revamp and the Myles Baldwin-designed landscaping.

The guide for the property, which has five bedrooms and five bathrooms and a Bellevue Hills Hotel-inspired swimming pool — was $28m, even when it was originally exclusively listed with Sotheby’s.

That’s despite rogue reports in other media that it was $38m, which was apparently based on street chatter.

The Leos have bought the Toorak home of Bain & Company’s Chris Harrop for circa $22m.

And the Harrops are moving to Sydney — they’ve bought former Crown boss Rob Rankin’s Woodlands mansion in Woollahra for $35m.
