Twice Archibald winner Del Kathryn Barton puts up Clovelly home on sale

Clovelly homeDel Kathryn Barton, an Archibald prize winner for the second time, has chosen to put her Clovelly home under the hammer. She is looking for $2.8 million at the Goodyer Donnelley auction on April 13, says Jonathan Chancellor in his article for the Property Observer. This is $0.1 million lesser than the price she had purchased it for in the year 2008. The five-bedroom house at Arden Street exhibits two pavilions and a swimming pool spread over a 550 meter block.  Proclaimed as an inventively (and stylishly) done Californian bungalow, the property drew attention of Barton after she had sold off her Petersham property.

An Adam Cullen unicorn, a Paddy Bedford abstract art and a piece from expressionist painter Louise Bourgeois, adorns the home. These neatly reflect the artistic aspirations of Barton, a lady who has won Archibald twice in her career. In 2008, a self-portrait called “You are what is most beautiful about me” won her the laurels. In 2013, a portrait of Hugo Weaving has brought her the accolades.
