The sale of an apartment for over $25 million in Sydney’s blue-ribbon enclave of Darling Point has set a new suburb record.

Not only is it the highest sale for the Sydney suburb for more than 18 months, but also steams past the previous $16.8 million record for an apartment set in June by the off-the-plan sale of a development on Yarranabbe Road.

The exact price paid for the home remains undisclosed by 1st City Double Bay’s Julian Hasemer. The property was listed less than two weeks ago with a $25 million guide and has sold well before the November 4 deadline.

According to posts by the agency’s social media accounts, the result came in at more than $25 million.

The apartment in question is a two-storey spread that has formal and informal living areas and uninterrupted harbour views to the city skyline, five bedrooms an internal lift and a swimming pool.

The apartment sold was one of two in the block built by yachtie Hugo van Kretschmar and his wife Karen after they bought the site in 2004 for $7 million and acquired the talents of Allen Jack+Cottier Architects to have them designed.

The couple kept one apartment – prior to its recent sale, with the lower-level apartment sold six months before completion to Thelma Levin wife of Park Lane Fashions boss Mervyn Levin.

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
