The Bellevue Hill home of the Australian chief financial officer of UBS, Andrew Ulcoq, and his wife Emily, Partner, Transformation Services at KPMG, has sold for a huge price well before its scheduled March 18 auction.
Laing and Simmons Double Bay’s D’Leanne Lewis announced the sale of the Bunyula Rd home on Instagram, advising “JUST SOLD!”.
Ms Lewis had been quoting a $5.2m to $5.3m guide.
She couldn’t be contacted to discuss the sale price, however other sources suggested it was as much as $5.7m.

The huge result indicates she had multiple parties keen on the seven-bedroom home, which had recently undergone an extensive renovation.
The kitchen was moved to the front from a dark corner at the back of the house.
The property is on the high side of the street and the bright and highly functional entertainment space opened to the front balcony with views across the district to the harbour.
It enjoyed complete privacy above its sandstone wall with two separate garages.
Outside: the pool was renovated; there’s new travertine paving, new garden beds and hedging.
The original exposed brick has been rendered, a new grand entrance created and the front beautifully landscaped.
Alsoin the renovation: the stairs were replaced; new American Oak hardwood floors added downstairs; new carpet upstairs; and new lighting installed. The rooms have also all been repainted.
The Ulcoqs are looking to downsize.
CoreLogic data shows they bought the home for $3.7 million in 2013.
