Vaucluse home of Rodney and Lyndi Adler back on the market
Lyndi Adler and her husband, the former FAI chief Rodney Adler, have relisted their seven-bedroom Vaucluse mansion with LJ Hooker Double Bay’s Bill Malouf.
The couple had pulled the three-storey home on a 2100 sqm block at 40-41 Olola Ave from sale last December after a seven-week campaign.
They’d said they intended to renovate and lodged plans for a new detached dual occupancy with Woollahra Council.
But no doubt encouraged by the improving conditions it’s back on the market in an expressions of interest campaign.
The home has a tennis court and pool. It previously had a guide in excess of $16 million.
This time the property has a starting price guide of $15.5 million.

John McGrath sells stunning penthouse
Where should John McGrath buy?
Buyer’s agent Simon Cohen said rather than abandoning apartment life, John McGrath could look in Sydney’s east instead of Walsh Bay and the city.
The McGrath executive director John McGrath recently sold his Walsh Bay penthouse for about $8.5 million because the body corporate wouldn’t allow him to have a dog there.
He said his next would be a house near a park so that he could have “a couple of dogs”.
But Mr Cohen said there are other alternatives.
“The east has a lot of dog-friendly apartments,” Mr Cohen said.
Mr Cohen suggested Gazebo, Potts Point or even Whites in Paddington.
“In Bellevue Hill most of the buildings are dog-friendly and in Double Bay there are a lot.”
Mr McGrath told the Wentworth Courier: “I’d asked body corporate for approval to have pets and had been knocked back.”
Power of pink
A cute one-bedroom Edgecliff apartment had five women fighting over it at last week’s auction, but it ended up going to a male banker.
“It’s decorated for women, but I think I got it for a fair price,” the buyer told me.
The unit at 6/170 New South Head Rd sold for $721,000 via Angus Gorrie of McGrath Coogee, $1000 over reserve.
House of the week sells
The Bellevue Hill home of award-winning artist Frannie Deane, wife of AMP’s Jonathan Deane, sold on the afternoon of Monday’s scheduled auction.
Sources said the Balfour Rd home went for close to $8 million.
Laing and Simmons Double Bay’s D’Leanne Lewis and Sotheby’s Michael Pallier had a $7 million guide.
