The three-bedroom “no parking” home was listed with a $1.75 million price guide.

Griffiths and Taylor’s last property in Sydney was a vacation home in Palm Beach that was sold by the couple in 2014 for $2.25 million.

They then moved with their family to Rachel’s hometown of Melbourne, to a Victorian-era house, the subsequent renovation of which was designed by Powell & Glenn Architects.

In a May column for Stellar Magazine, the Muriel’s Wedding star, who lived in the US for ten years before returning to Australia, explained her reasons for coming home.

“I was hungry to come home and tell our own Australian stories with humanity and strength,” she wrote.

“So did I, and the years that followed were the most fulfilling of my career.”
