According to NZHERALD the owners of two of Auckland’s most expensive homes are in the midst of a divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage.
Rich-listers financier Martyn and Jacqui Reesby separated in 2020 and Spy understands their divorce will be completed in August.
The couple have lived a luxurious life with a blended family of three adult sons, two from their marriage and the eldest from a former relationship of Martyn’s.
Their marital home on one of the eastern suburbs’ most exclusive streets, Victoria Ave in Remuera, is on the market and expected to sell for more than $20 million.
The Reesbys purchased the home, called Cambridge Manor, 18 years ago, and alongside architect Matt Chaplin of Sumich Chaplin, have spent almost $8m making it their dream family home.
The grand residence is 1000sqm and has magnificent entertaining features, five-bedrooms, and a guest house. The more than 3000sq m grounds include immaculately landscaped gardens, two swimming pools and a tennis court.
In 2019, the couple purchased one of Waiheke Island’s most expensive homes, the mammoth Te Rere Estate on Church Rd, a colonial-style home and vineyard with sprawling views over the Hauraki Gulf. The 1800sq m two-storey holiday home has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and an indoor pool and theatre. The estate features a six-car garage and an outdoor bar, which can be wheeled away for helicopter landings.
