The Australian tech billionaire is rumored to have bought an $ 8 million home on a remote island in Sydney
Rumor has it that a high-profile Australian tech billionaire has bought a stunning $ 8 million home on Sydney’s northern beaches.
Mike Cannon-Brookes, 41, the co-CEO and co-founder of Atlassian, has reportedly bought the property on Scotland Island, which is only accessible by boat.
Called ‘Bangalla’, the estate was first built in the early 1800s and developed by global financial expert Alistair Jeffery.
The recent sale of Bangalla has also set a new price record for real estate in Scotland Island.

The luxury property, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, features rich hardwood floors, French windows and an adjoining guest cottage
Other notable features of the property in Sydney’s affluent Pittwater region include a striking sandstone fireplace (pictured above), multiple bathrooms and air conditioning.
The previous record was in 2013 when the ‘Yamba’ waterfront estate was sold for $ 7 million to Singapore’s richest man Philip Ng, according to realestate.com.au.
The alleged new dig at Cannon-Brooks also has a private beach overlooking the Pittwater region, with two jetties.
If necessary, the house has space for a yacht berth and access to a boathouse.
The property itself has beamed ceilings, a striking sandstone fireplace, rich hardwood floors and a beautiful heated wet-edged pool.
Other notable features include a six-person sauna, multiple bathrooms and air conditioning.
Bangalla also features an adjoining guest cottage, decked out with a striking teak interior, kitchenette and veranda.
Real estate on Sydney’s affluent northern beaches clearly appeals to Cannon-Brookes.
Last June, he bought a mansion previously owned by supermodel Jennifer Hawkins for $ 24.5 million in neighboring Newport.
Also in 2020, the married father of four bought a minority stake in Utah Jazz on the NBA side.
Cannon-Brookes played high school basketball at the prestigious Cranbrook School in eastern Sydney and at one point wanted to play the sport professionally.
