Samantha Armytage sells her furniture through an upscale auction house

Everything must go: Sunrise host Sam Armytage auctions her furniture for up to $30,000 as she settles into married life with husband Richard Lavender

Former Sunrise host Samantha Armytage is auctioning off valuable household items and furniture she’s collected over the years.

The move comes as Armytage, 45, and her husband, equestrian businessman Richard Lavender, are getting married in the Southern Highlands.

The Channel Seven presenter, who sold her North Bondi home for more than $2.8 million in 2020 and now lives with Lavender on his 40-acre estate in Bowral, is selling her properties through high-end auctioneer Lawsons in partnership with Melissa Penfold’s Town & Country Sale.

The most expensive items on offer are a pair of bronze horse statues that are expected to fetch between $20,000 and $30,000.

Armytage sells Bondi-owned items she unloaded two years ago, as well as her former home in Burrawang, NSW.

“Sam offers her pieces at competitive prices because she believes in keeping them in circulation for as long as possible and being part of the circular economy,” the auction website states.

Armytage, who will be back later this year as a guest host on Seven dating show Farmer Wants a Wife, said, “I wanted the things I’d loved to live with to move on and have a new life in new homes.”

The former breakfast TV anchor sells woven baskets and a marble table from her former country home.

Other items for sale include stone water fountains; outdoor furniture, including tables and mirrors; artwork; and French antiques and ornate statues – although some of these are believed to have come from the collection curated by Melissa Penfold.

Armytage’s husband, Mr. Lavender, owns a 40-acre estate in Bowral, while she sold her cottage in the Southern Highlands in 2020 for $3.1 million.

Earlier that year, she said goodbye to her $2.8 million North Bondi home.

But she hasn’t completely left Sydney, as she reportedly bought a $1.5 million waterfront unit in Rushcutters Bay last year.

She and Lavender were married at his home in the Southern Highlands on New Year’s Eve in 2020.
