The former Mosman home of The Project’s Lisa Wilkinson and ex-Wallabies player turned author Peter FitzSimons is for sale.
The listing comes 21 years after the couple sold 63 Bradleys Head Rd for $1.655 million to move to a property in neighbouring Cremorne where they still live today.
Ms Wilkinson and Mr FitzSimons lived at the Bradleys Head Rd address for five years between 1993 and 1998. They paid $875,000 for the grand Federation home.

It for sale as a private treaty with LJ Hooker Avnu’s Michael Coombs and former TV presenter turned real estate Tom Williams for an undisclosed price.
The five-bedroom home boasts Harbour Bridge and Opera House views and has a mix of formal and informal areas with high ornate ceilings and leadlight windows.
On Monday, Ms Wilkinson penned an article for 10daily on the home after her and Mr FitzSimons visited the property for the first time since 1998.
“Newly married, pregnant with our first child, and full of the promise of the life we were planning, we fell in love with our house, much as we had with each other — on the spot, and profoundly,” Ms Wilkinson wrote.
The TV presenter said for six weeks before they got the keys they would sit in their car across the road and dream of their future.
“Watching as the lights went on and off, and never quite believing that we were grown up enough to have found our forever home,” she said.
Today the home is very different to when the couple last lived there. The home has a second level added in the form of a parent’s retreat with walk-in wardrobe, three balconies and an ensuite.
There is also an open plan gas kitchen with marble benchtops, large entertainment area, wine cellar and an infinity pool.
After her visit, Ms Wilkinson said the vendor had completed all the renovations that they dreamt of doing, but never did.
Sitting on 1143sqm, it is one of the largest freestanding properties located close to Mosman village.
It is also an easy walk to Balmoral Beach, Taronga Zoo and a number of Harbour parks. There is a bus stop across the road that has direct services to the city.
The Bradleys Head Rd property is located in the same suburb that her former Today colleagues Karl Stefanovic and Georgie Gardner call home.
