Samantha Armytage sells her furniture through an upscale auction house

Everything must go: Sunrise host Sam Armytage auctions off 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 prized household items and furniture she has collected over the years.

The move comes as Armytage, 45, settles into married life in the Southern Highlands with her husband, equestrian businessman Richard Lavender.

The Channel Seven presenter, who sold her North Bondi home for more than $2.8million in 2020 and now lives with Lavender at his 40-hectare property in Bowral, is selling her possessions 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 is selling items from the Bondi property she offloaded two years ago, as well as her former home in Burrawang, NSW. 

‘Sam is offering her pieces at great prices because she believes in keeping things in rotation for as long as possible and being part of the circular economy,’ the auction website states.

Armytage, who will return to screens later this year as a guest host on Seven dating show Farmer Wants a Wife, said: ‘I wanted the things that I had enjoyed living with to go on and have new lives in new homes.’

The former breakfast TV anchor is selling off woven baskets and a marble table from her former countryside residence. 

Other items listed 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 be from Melissa Penfold’s curated collection.

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

Earlier that year, she parted ways with her $2.8million North Bondi home.

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

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