Inside Georgie Gardner’s charming $800K beach house


Australian TV personality Georgie Gardner and her husband, Tim Baker, have just sold their Culburra beach home on the NSW south coast for a stunning AUD$800,000.

Local residents shouldn’t expect to see much of the Today show co-host around the quiet beach town any longer once the sale goes through after the Easter holidays.

The days of lazing on a hammock just metres away from the sand will end after the property spent six weeks on the market before being sold at a midweek auction.

The 835sqm property rests on the coast of Culburra, a beautiful beach town on the south coast of NSW, and was snapped up back in 2007 by Georgie and her husband for AUD$570,000.

The coastal getaway is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom retreat for those looking to getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Ray White Culburra Beach agents Julie Gauci and Craig Hadfield, who managed the sale, told South Coast Register 25 groups inspected the house before it sold.

“It was a quick turnover because of that particular location,” Ms Gauci explained.

“It's one house back from the beach and it's affordable. These days, you'd have to spend anything up to $2 million for a house right on the beach.

“Yes, it may not have the water views, but it's the next best thing.”

The expansive home features modern touches and a coastal feel.

The Today show host also just recently offloaded her Woollahra investment property, which is just 300m from Bondi Junction.

The apartment failed to attract a buyer at an auction recently, but sold midweek at an undisclosed price, although the couple were seeking upwards of AUD$850,000.

The property listings came just weeks after Georgie and her banker husband recently upgraded their AUD$4.5 million home in Artarmon on Sydney's north shore to a luxurious Mosman property costing them $6 million.
