TV presenter Natalie Hunter, ex-AFL umpire Jordan Bannister earn millions for home
Former AFL player and umpire Jordan Bannister and his TV presenter wife Natalie Hunter have sold their Brighton home to a family from the UK.
The couple earned $4 million for the contemporary house at 28 Campbell St with a pool, gym and sleek minimalist interior.
Buxton Bentleigh director Simon Pintado said the buyer planned to move his family from university city Cambridge into the “wow factor” four-bedroom pad.

“He loved how well it was thought out, how it was designed, and the location to top that all off,” Mr Pintado said of the buyer.
The agent said he received four written offers during its six weeks on the market. The property was initially listed with a $3.9-$4.2 million price guide for a twilight auction in late-February, before reverting to private sale.
Bannister bought the property in late-2014 for $1.8 million, when it was a tennis court that had been split from a neighbouring home.
The ex-Essendon and Carlton footballer and Hunter, a Studio 10 regular on Channel 10, then enlisted high-end design and construction company Stonnington Group to build the house.
“I was overseas when Jordan bought the block,” Hunter said when the property first hit the market.
“He has a habit of doing it — that’s why we’re selling, he’s bought another block of land.”
Hunter said she’d loved the big main bedroom with two walk-through wardrobes, and the lush yard with a self-cleaning pool and feature pond where they’d kept turtles.
Bannister’s favourite featured had been the gym.
She said the couple’s next home would also be in Brighton, and be created by Stonnington Group.
