David and Candice Warner’s $4million Maroubra mansion is STILL under construction

David and Candice Warner’s $4million Maroubra mansion is STILL under construction after almost SIX years


David and Candice Warner have been building their dream home in Maroubra for almost six years – and they still haven’t reached completion. 

New photos of the $4million mansion, which is situated in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, taken on Friday, show that the home is still a construction site.  

The pair purchased the property in December 2015, meaning the entire process of the renovation is just weeks away from taking six years. 

Long wait: David and Candice Warner have been building their dream home in Maroubra for almost six years – and they still haven’t reached completion. Both pictured 

The sighting is at odds with reports in July that David and Candice were ‘ready to move in’ after selling their temporary family home down the road.

At the time The Daily Telegraph reported they’d sold the house for $4.2 million – a move that suggested they were about to relocate to their new property 

However, given the state of the construction progress, this seems unlikely.

The pair demolished the existing dwelling in 2017, then completed excavation works to prepare the site for a new five-level mansion complete with a gym and pool.

The construction on the $4million block of land was originally estimated to cost the couple a further $4.2million to develop.

But it appears that budget has now been blown out.

A new development application to Randwick council was lodged in February last year, which requested amendments to the original plans.

According to a News Corp report from 2018, construction on the Warners’ property had ‘infuriated neighbours’. 

One neighbour was quoted as saying: ‘Trucks have been coming and going for months, but then we don’t see anything for a couple of weeks. We expected this to be built by now — he bought the place ages ago and it’s not pretty to look at.’    

Some neighbours had previously complained about the noise, and works had also led to limited street access and ‘restricted parking’ at times.

Discussing the build with Daily Mail Australia that same year, Elvis Mardini, the owner of Mardini Constructions, said that locals had been ‘calling the council every day’.

‘The neighbours think it’s going to take away from their view but it wonz’t. I think they’ve got an issue with David and Candice, but they don’t know them,’ he said.

At the time, Mr Mardini predicted the property would be finished by December 2019, two years after construction first began in 2017.  

David and Candice, who married in 2015, are parents to daughters Ivy, six, Indi, five, and Isla, one.
