Nick Molnar, co-founder of the Australian buy-now, pay-later platform Afterpay, has a new $10 million property under his belt.

According to property website Domain, Molnar’s wife Gabrielle paid $10 million for a penthouse on the Ben Buckler clifftop in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The three bedroom North Bondi triplex – a three floor building – comes with a rooftop terrace and a pool. It was an off-market purchase from the HSN Holding company.

There is no word yet on whether the couple is going to keep their nearby two bedroom apartment in North Bondi, which they first bought in 2013 for $900,000.

The $10 million purchase comes two years after Molnar’s fellow Afterpay co-founder Anthony Eisen bought a $6.2 million mansion in Brighton, Melbourne. Eisen then purchased a holiday house in Byron Bay in 2018 which was formerly owned by Charlie Arnott, of the Arnott’s Biscuits family for $7.6 million.

Molnar and Eisen aren’t the only Aussie tech founders buying up big properties in Australia. In 2018, Atlassian’s Mike Cannon-Brookes bought Australia’s most expensive home, the Fairwater mansion on Sydney Harbour. While the price was not disclosed, Business Insider understands it was close to $100 million.

In 2017, Atlassian co-founder Scott Farquhar bought the 1863 mansion Elaine in Sydney’s Point Piper for $75 million . Elaine has been owned by the Fairfax family since 1891 and was on market after John B Fairfax decided to sell the family property in 2013.
