British actor Daniel Radcliffe has sold his Melbourne hideaway through his parents’ business unit for around $2 million.
The 33-year-old Harry Potter star used the Toorak estate as a temporary home during filming in Australia in the early 2000s, but hasn’t found a use for it since.
According to a report from Realestate.com.au, the property was quietly sold by a corporation called Gilmore Jacobs, owned by Radcliffe’s parents, Marcia Gresham and Alan Radcliffe.
Radcliffe’s parents have long made it clear that the money Gilmore Jacobs makes – from investments and Daniel’s stellar career – is for their son’s benefit alone.
The Daily Mail reported in December 2019 that his company, Gilmore Jacobs, had reached a net worth of £80m ($147m).
Radcliffe’s mother bought the home for $1.9 million in 2004 while her superstar son was working in Australia.
She then transferred the title to her son’s name in 2007, just before he turned 18.
In 2015, Radcliffe listed the property for sale with a guide price of around $3.5 million, but removed it from the market just days later after deciding he wanted to continue working in Australia.
He eventually sold the property to his parents’ business unit last year for $2 million.
Located on the top floor of the complex, the apartment features floor-to-ceiling windows, spacious outdoor areas and a state-of-the-art kitchen.
Agents wouldn’t be drawn to the sale price, but the figure is reported to be in the “low $2 million.”
Radcliffe’s parents founded Gilmore Jacobs way back in 2000, before Harry Potter first cast his worldwide spell.
Radcliffe rose to fame in 2001 with the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, the first Hollywood film based on the novels by JK Rowling.
He reportedly earned $1 million for the first film to be released when he was 12 years old.
He starred in all eight films of the popular franchise.
The fantasy films also star Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton.
