TV presenter Antonia Kidman, the younger sister of actor Nicole Kidman, is seeking tenants for her long-held lower north shore home — which has for some time been an executive rental.

Kidman is now based in Singapore with her businessman husband Craig Marran and their children.

Kidman is seeking a $2500-a-week tenant for the two-level Greenwich home with harbour views, which sits in sprawling 1785 sqm wraparound gardens­ and lawns. It has five bedrooms, three bathrooms, open-plan kitchen and a formal dining area.

SydneySlice Woollahra agent Melanie La Pouple is offering it at the same rental as two years ago, when it had been freshly painted. “It suits a family, large or small,” the marketing says.

The Kidman clan haven’t called Greenwich home since 2009 when they left for Singapore. 

Once dubbed Bisley, the Edwardian-era grand manor was built in 1912 for rifle importer Harry Motton, who had bought the block from Dr Walter Burfitt.

According to Motton’s granddaughter, a time capsule­ was buried in the grounds by a member of the original family.

The late psychologist and author Dr Antony Kidman and his wife Janelle­ had purchased their 1882 sandstone former drapery shop home in 1998 from Sydney advertising guru Simon Collins for $1.65 million.

Kidman and Hawley, who were married for 11 years, had four children.

She now has two children with Marran.

The family retains a holiday­ home at Whale Beach, which cost $2,025,000 in 2011.

Antonia’s first Sydney property was a hand-me-down, a one-bedroom unit above shops in Mosman which her older sister had secured in 1987.

The elder Kidman had spent $81,000 on the Military Rd unit but when Hollywood and Tom Cruise beckoned, Antonia took up occupancy.

The unit was sold in 1998 for $265,000.
