A glamorous Sydney socialite who shot to fame in 2017 after a viral video has won a long-standing battle to renovate her $10 million harbourside mansion, just 500 metres from the home of former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
Thrust into the spotlight after a 15 metre sinkhole opened up outside of her Point Piper home three years ago, Kristy Mirzikinian gave a memorable interview to reporters while clutching a Mercedes Benz umbrella.
‘I’m in shock right now because I’ve come home, and there’s a massive hole opposite my house, completely empty! Came out of nowhere!’ she said.
‘My personal trainer’s come, my electricity is off, and now I don’t know what to do.’

Ms Mirzikinian, who lives at the property with her professional poker player husband Warwick Mirzikinian, was hoping to undergo a $2.6 million rebuild that would see a large section of the home knocked down.
But Woollahra Council originally rejected the proposal as it exceeded the maximum height level of the area.
As well as a new swimming pool and a massive revamp of the property’s outdoor space, Ms Mirzikinian also planned to build an adjoining two-storey domicile above the existing building.
Taking the matter to New South Wales Land and Environment Court, she successfully argued the rebuild should be allowed to go ahead.
‘The area of the exceedance does not alter existing solar access to neighbouring properties or open space,’ the court’s Commissioner Tim Horton found.

Ms Mirzikinian does have to make some concessions however.
The pump for the new swimming pool now has to be located as far as possible from the neighbours’ boundaries and the lights on the existing tennis court must be turned off before 9pm.
