Located in the blue-ribbon Sydney suburb of Point Piper, on the highly sought-after Wunulla Road, this expansive boatshed has just sold for close to $40 million, making it Australia’s most expensive property sale this year.

Taking just weeks to sell, it is believed to have sold on the high end of its $37-$40 million price estimate by Ken Jacobs and James Hall of Christie’s International.

The two-storey boatshed is set on almost 2000sqm and is complete with a harbourside swimming pool on grounds and one of the largest private marina berths on Sydney Harbour.

More than a boatshed, it holds accommodation on the upper level and, importantly, a DA to convert the property into a house, recently approved by Woollahra Council.

The property has seen many of Sydney’s elite as custodians, with it once the former party-pad of Denis O’Neil, property developer and Olympic sailor, and his family.
