Channel 7 presenter Angie Asimus and her husband Chris Abbott have upsized on the northern bea­ches ahead of the birth of their first child.

The couple, who wed on Valentine’s Day last month after 12 years together, have moved inland from Collaroy to Belrose.

They’ve paid $1.55 million for an original 1970s single level family home, traded for the first time since 1984 at $139,500.

The home was on the market for only 16 days.

It was marketed by LJ Hooker Frenchs Forest agents Troy McKinstry and Shane Broekman as an exciting ­opportunity to create a dream home.

They only had it listed for 16 days before it sold.

Set on a 700sqm block, every room in the three bedroom house opens to the outdoor areas which feature gardens, front and back decks and a pool.
