    Australia’s most significant private estate is now one of the world’s most exciting residential opportunities. The historic Sydney harbour landmark, Elaine, is offered with DA approval for four world class residences. Potential purchasers have the flexibility to consider a variety of configurations, from acquiring the entire estate through to purchasing one or more of the individual home sites.

    Situated about 5kms from the city centre on 6,986sqm (1.72 acres) with approximately 43.5m frontage on Seven Shillings Beach, no comparable estate has ever been offered for purchase. Erected in 1863 in the grand Victorian mansion style, Elaine's ballroom, numerous balconies boasting stunning Sydney Harbour views, and rolling gardens have played host to a bevy of important guests across four generations of ownership by one of Australia's greatest media families.

    Spanning six separate titles, the estate offers the flexibility of a magnificent family compound to potential luxury apartment development. Elaine is the priceless jewel of Sydney and the estate's attributes and deep-seated history are impossible to replicate, making this a truly unique opportunity to own a piece of Australian history – and to invest in its exciting future.

    • 6,986sqm (1.72 acres) Waterfront in Point Piper, on 6 separate titles
    • DA approval for four world class residences
    • Owned by the one family for 4 generations, 122 years
    • Elaine, is the most significant residential estate to ever be sold in Australia
    • Likely to be the last of the great old harbour front estates that will be offered into private hands
