Music power couple Nik Tischler and Sonia Le have just listed their picturesque Northcote home for sale.
Mr Tischler, who was a founding member of the iconic Australian rock group You Am I, and Ms Le, who is Aria award-winning artist Justine Clarke’s manager, are selling 59 Bent St via auction on September 21 with price hopes of $1.75-$1.85 million.
The power couple bought the property for $697,000 in 2005, according to CoreLogic.
Jellis Craig Northcote agent Sam Rigopoulos said he could only imagine how many rock stars had walked through the front door.
“They have handled some big names,” Mr Rigopoulos said.
Mr Tischler is now a renowned Live Nation tour manager and has worked with acclaimed artists such as Pink, Jack Johnson, Pearl Jam and Adele, and Ms Le has helped Play School presenter Justine Clarke release multiple albums and DVDs of children’s music.
Mr Rigopoulos said it was one of the “prettiest houses” he had ever seen.
“The house is gorgeous, it is picture perfect. It has a magnolia tree out the front and a nice renovation out the back,” he said.
“They did the renovation and put a Cantilever kitchen in, it is timeless, it will still look great in 25 years.”
Mr Rigopoulos said the couple had loved the home but it was time to move onto another project.
He said they were planning on building another house in the same area.
“This house has a really special feeling, there is something about it that grabs you,” he said.
A wrought iron fence and gate frames the picture-perfect Victorian facade that gives a hint to the stylish update inside.
A traditional hallway passes four bedrooms (or three bedrooms and a formal lounge room) and arrives at the open-plan living hub with high ceilings and big windows that overlook the backyard.
Mr Rigopoulos said there were other properties of a similar era and size for sale but few had a feeling like this one.
The property is zoned to Northcote High and is close to bustling High St and the Northcote train station.
