Renowned painter David Bromley and his fashion designer wife Yuge have sold the Hepburn Springs house they turned into a work of art.
McQueen Real Estate director Kim McQueen couldn’t reveal much about the deal, which was done on Christmas Eve for an undisclosed price.
But she said the buyer was from the Hepburn Springs area and planned to move his family into the pad at 20 Main Rd.
It had a $650,000 asking price.

“It was a nice Christmas present (for the buyer and sellers),” Ms McQueen said.
“(The buyer) really appreciated the quirkiness of the house, and he loved the views.
“It’s at the highest point of the hill in Hepburn Springs and has views towards Castlemaine and across Wombat State Forest.”
The agent previously told the Herald Sun the artistic couple had “waved the Bromley magic” over the three-bedroom house on a 823sq m landholding, revamping it in their signature bold style.
This included installing bespoke wallpaper, light fittings and blinds with David’s artworks screen-printed on to them.
The Bromleys also added oak parquetry floors, a timber kitchen with handmade cabinetry, and “a rainbow of colour” to the pad, along with colourful sculptures in the yard landscaped by “avid gardener” David.
The couple had lived at the property on and off since buying it in mid-2016, when CoreLogic records show it fetched $400,000.
They’re also selling a colourful three-bedroom house on 2500sq m at 3031 Ballan-Daylesford Rd, Daylesford, with an $850,000 price guide, after fully renovating it.
The owners of store and gallery Bromley & Co have been involved in several property deals in the region in recent years, notably buying the Old Castlemaine Gaol for $1.5 million last May and selling another strikingly renovated Hepburn Springs home in September 2017 for $1.7 million.
David described himself as a “keen, impulse and obsessed” property buyer in an interview with the Herald Sun last year.
Ms McQueen said house sales close to Christmas were relatively common, as buyers and sellers often felt “an urgency” to get deals wrapped up before the festive period.
