A three-story waterfront home has become Sydney’s most expensive sale so far in 2021.
The five-bedroom, six-bath eco townhouse at 1 Wingadal Place, Point Piper, owned by environmental attorney Sarah Cooke, sold for more than $ 40 million.
Raine & Horne Double Bay sold the 961 m2 trophy house for Ms. Cooke to an unknown buyer in a ‘top secret deal’.
With a million dollars you can’t buy such a view these days. 1 Wingadal Place, Point Piper (pictured) sold for $ 40 million plus in a secret sale this week.
The architect-designed three-story eco-house was on the market with a price tag of nearly $ 60 million in 2019. Despite the lower selling price, it is still believed to be the most expensive home sold in Sydney to date in 2021.
The sale is believed to be the highest price paid in Sydney so far this year, with the two closest in price also sold at Point Piper for between $ 37 million and $ 40 million, realestate.com.au reported.
This latest sale is located on Wingadal Place, a street on the exclusive Point Piper Peninsula with only two other neighbor houses.
The enviable views stretch from Seven Shilling Beach and Double Bay to the Opera House and Harbor Bridge.
The home also has a wide variety of ultra-luxury features.
They range from an infinity pool made of Cait Rosso red marble, six lavish bathrooms, an automated Italian waterfront window system, and a turntable outside the four-car garage.
The interior is notable for the use of reclaimed Karri wood, Wondabyne sandstone on the NSW Central Coast, and imported Italian marble.
One of the most unusual features inside is a woven vaulted copper ceiling, which is believed to be one of a kind.

Sydney environmental attorney Sarah Cooke, who once owned a small Bondi flat, bought the extraordinary Point Piper trophy house for $ 7.95 million in 2006
The architects helped integrate multiple eco functions, including solar hydronic heating in the bathrooms, energy efficient design, photovoltaic cells and a gray water recycling system.
Mrs. Cooke is said to have bought the house at a foreclosure auction in 2006 for $ 7.95 million.
In 2019, she said buying the house was ‘like I had won the lottery’, reflecting on the days when she once owned a small condo in Bondi.
