Co-founder of tech sector investment firm Potentia Capital, Andrew Gray, and wife Emma have listed their Mosman trophy home Cambria on Sydney’s lower north shore, just seven months after the couple purchased the 1906-built mansion for $17 million – the same price it is now guiding.
The Mosman mansion of Potentia co-founder Andrew Gray has hit the market after selling for $17 million last year.  
The Grays purchased the four-bedroom property with water views over Balmoral Beach from former Perpetual boss Geoff Lloyd last July, about the same time Potentia (which Gray co-founded with MYOB’s former chief executive Tim Reed) sold mining sector software pioneer Micromine to Aspen Technology for $900 million.
The couple’s Balmoral Avenue purchase came two months after they quietly sold their Victorian Italianate Bellevue Hill estate, Rothesay, to Adani CFO “Robbie” Jugeshinder Singh and his partner, hedge fund sales consultant Marijana Domazet, for $37 million in May last year.
The four-bedroom property features luxury interiors by designer Patricia Stewart.  
The surprise Valentine’s Day Mosman listing is in the hands of Atlas’ Michael Coombs, who also sold the property to the couple less than a year earlier.
The Mosman property sits on a 740 square metre block featuring a wet edge pool and entertainer’s barbecue.  
The Federation treasure includes a contemporary extension featuring a large family room that opens out onto an entertainer’s barbecue and wet-edge pool. The Patricia Stewart-designed interiors include a palatial master bedroom that opens up to a balcony with water views, along with a 1500 bottle cellar.
Managing director at Goldman Sachs, Phillipe Perzi, is behind the $8.5 million purchase of a Vaucluse property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
Settlement documents reveal the investment banker – who heads up the Wall Street bank’s Financial Institutions Group – as taking the keys to the five-bedroom home on blue-ribbon Hopetoun Avenue in Australia’s most expensive suburb.
The Hopetoun Avenue property in Vaucluse was guiding $7.5 million before selling pre-auction for $8.5 million. 
The property was purchased through a buyer’s agent who negotiated a pre-auction deal through TRG’s Oliver Lavers and Gavin Rubinstein, who were originally guiding $7.5 million.
Selling agent Mr Lavers remarked the property was “one of the last ones due to be substantially renovated in a line of luxury properties” on the coveted avenue.
The home, which sits on an expansive 936-square-metre square block, last traded in 2014 for about $4 million.
A luxury apartment in Crown’s One Barangaroo has just sold for more than $26 million, after outgoing Hong Kong businesswoman Huanhuan Zheng purchased it off the plan in 2021 for $22.5 million.
This four-bedroom apartment in Crown’s One Barangaroo tower sold for over $26 million. 
Listing agent The Agency’s Steven Chen said the vendor had never lived in the apartment because of her commitments overseas, and listed the four-bedroom, four-bathroom residence with northerly views over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House as it was “surplus to needs”.
Mr Chen said the local buyer, who purchased the luxury unit as a Sydney base, was drawn to the tower’s integrated resort facilities.
“The apartment is a world-class offering with Australian-first access to all the Crown resort facilities, like in-room restaurant meals and massages, as well as the 24/7 concierge service and security measures,” Mr Chen said.
The Tamarama property of global e-commerce hair extension brand Zala founders, Lauren McLoughlin and Lachlan Gorman, has defied the downturn. It sold for $14.5 million at auction – $3 million above the $11.5 million guide being offered by selling agent PPD’s Alexander Phillips when it hit the market just over two weeks ago.
This four-level Tamarama home has sold for $14.5 million – $3 million over its $11.5 million guide.  
Not a bad result for the couple, who purchased the designer abode overlooking trendy Tamarama for $8.4 million in late 2018 from medicinal cannabis industry chief Matt Cantelo.
The resort-style, four-level property features a home cinema, cocktail bar, infrared sauna, 12kW solar power system, biogas fire pit and a heated infinity pool surrounded by daybeds.
In neighbouring Bronte, the buyer of a $9.5 million home on Bayview Street has been revealed as property developer Daniel Gavan and his wife Vanessa.
This Bayview Street property sits across the road from Bronte Park in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.  
Described as presenting “a world of opportunity”, the listing, through PPD’s Alexander Phillips, appeared to be a classic case of “location, location”. The tired brick veneer requires a major facelift, but overlooks one of the eastern suburb’s most coveted beaches.
The property developer, who focuses on residential projects in south Sydney, is well-positioned to take advantage of his recent purchase’s untapped potential to subdivide the 15 metre-fronted site into high-end development. The property last traded for $3.05 million in 2004.
Founder and chief executive of Sun Cable, David Griffin, and his partner David Peters have sold their designer Paddington terrace in Sydney’s eastern suburbs to ex-Crown chairman Helen Coonan, whose name appears on the settlement documents alongside her son and EY partner Adam Coonan and his wife Candice Bailey.
The Paddington terrace of Sun Cable founder David Griffin has sold to ex Crown Chair Helen Coonan.  
Griffin sold the four-level Moore Park Road terrace to the former Liberal senator and her son and daughter-in-law for $7.1 million in October last year, with settlement in late January confirming the identity of the incoming residents.
The property sold through McGrath’s Luke Hogan and last traded for $4.075 million in 2020.
The former Howard government minister has an art deco property – also part-owned by Coonan Jnr and Ms Bailey – on the market in neighbouring Woollahra with a $7 million guide.
