Darling Point Trophy Home Finally Sells

Few homes in Sydney offer such exclusive waterfront as the Darling Point home owned by the Allen family.

However, the allure of the watery surrounds was not enough to shift the property quickly, with a four-year campaign and numerous agents attempting to reach a $60-milliion settlement.

The six-bedroom, six-bathroom residence is now sold, with the price understood to have been more than $60 million, following an exclusive campaign with Alison Coopes and her eponymous boutique agency.

The eye-watering price ranks the home among the country’s top nine house sales, and the first at that level outside of the coveted locales of Vaucluse and Point Piper.

The Allen family, of Airlie beach-based Lisa Allen and her former husband investment banker and yachtie Matt Allen, purchased the home on Lindsay Avenue for $32 million in 2013.

In 2017 the Allens undertook a major renovation that retained original features such as the floating staircase, but updated the rest of the property before listing it on the market. At the time, it is rumoured that Mr Allen saw an opportunity to test the market following the sale of Phoenix Acres in Vaucluse for $70 million  — at the time the third most expensive house sale recorded in Australia.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck have officially put their massive Los Angeles mansion on the market for $68 million.

The lavish Beverly Hills property hit listing sites on Thursday, months after rumours began that the couple, who are reportedly estranged , were shopping the home around only a year after buying it for nearly $61 million.

The roughly 5-acre property—which is in a gated community and spans a massive 38,000 square feet—includes an indoor sports court with an adjacent gym and games room, according to the listing with Santiago Arana of the Agency. The firm declined to comment.

Lopez and Affleck paid $60.8 million for the compound in 2023.

Built in 2000, the house has 12 bedrooms and a whopping 24 bathrooms. The resort-sized property has the amenities to match, including a V-shaped pool with views over the surrounding hills, a detached two-bedroom guardhouse and a 5,000-square-foot guest penthouse, according to the listing.

Listing images of the house show that Lopez and Affleck have spent the past year warming up what were fairly white-washed interiors when they purchased the home. There’s now a rich, green-painted dining room, hardwood floors and carpeted over cold, polished-stone flooring.

The couple, who got married in 2022 after reuniting some 20 years after they called off their engagement in the early 2000s, purchased the megamansion following a house hunt that went on for several months, The Wall Street Journal reported at the time.

Representatives for Lopez, 54, and Affleck, 51, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
