The $13.5 million Centennial Park home that went up in flames in November last year, has been rebuilt to its former glory — and seen a change of owner.
It was Anita Bhandari, on her way to holiday in Bali, who was the owner when the luxury parkside home caught ablaze.
Her estranged husband, wealthy entrepreneur and Tibra Capital co-founder Danny Bhandari, reached the home as 80 firefighters attended the early evening blaze.
The NSW Fire Service told The Sell that the cause “could not be determined”.
A week after the fire, Ms Bhandari told The Daily Telegraph she was upset by persistent rumours surrounding the cause.
The home had been bought solely in Anita’s name in 2009 for $8 million. But its ownership was recently transferred solely to Danny, who had been directing his mail to a Paddington PO box.
Occupancy was recently allowed, according to Sydney City Council records, after Bellevarde Construction rebuilt the Tobias Partners-designed home.
Danny, who was reappointed by Stuart Ayres to the Venues NSW board in June this year, had been a regular on the Young Rich List until he turned 40 three years ago.
