How much for an iconic Sydney view?
A buyer had paid about $1.5 million over the earliest price expectations for a jaw-dropping Seaforth property, which ends the traditional spring selling season on a crescendo, as the highest price achieved in the suburb this year.
The six-bedroom house, described by BresicWhitney agents as "pairing an exclusive esplanade position with lavish scale" sold for an undisclosed sum on November 25 but it is understood to be close to $12 million.
The barreling vista, thanks to its elevated block, captures landmarks from Middle Harbour, to the The Spit, the beachfront bays, northern suburbs, twinkling CBD skyline and the heads.
The guide started at $10.5 million but was raised to $11 million during the strong campaign for 12 Edgecliffe Esplanade, which was sold at auction.
BresicWhitney Lower North Shore's Anna Chen and Peter Greyson looked after the listing, and BresicWhitney CEO Thomas McGlynn auctioned the property.
Luxury additions included a poolside cabana and guest house in the north-facing garden, media lounge, en suites in four of the bedrooms and a 100-square-metre basement for garaging and storage.

The floorplan has flexibility with casual and formal dining rooms, a lounge and a sitting room.
Bedrooms connect to an upper terrace, for a side of sparkling water views with your morning coffee.
Deep balconies on all floors provide a sun-drenched spot to watch the bobbing yachts on the water and the changing colours as the sun goes down.
The median house price in Seaforth is $3,327,500 – a rise of 26 per cent over five years but a short-term drop of 5.3 per cent (over 12 months).
