One of Australia’s most powerful retailers and his star reality television partner have smashed the record for the most expensive home ever sold at auction Down Under.

Chemist Warehouse co-founder Sam Gance and Real Housewives of Melbourne cast member and Raw Essentials Tea founder Janet Roach paid an eye-watering $43million for the two-storey trophy home at 47 Lansell Road, Toorak.

Ms Roach, 63, is the outspoken headliner of the long-running reality show, famous for her one-liners, such as ‘I don’t like trouble – unless I’m causing it!’

Mr Gance and Ms Roach are understood to have beaten one other bidder in a private auction to secure the grand five-bedroom, architect-designed mansion, which would be at home on the cover of any glossy lifestyle magazine.
