This stunning, 14-bedroom, grand harbourside residence known as Yarranabbe House, once owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, is being offered by expressions of interest with a quote price of $14 million.
Domain reports that Murdoch bought it in 1961 for £55,000, or $99,000.
Murdoch then sold it in 1966 to the late businessman David Crane. It’s been in the hands of the Crane family since then.
Last week his widow Sonia Crane put the grand home on the market for the first time in 52 years, offered by expressions of interest.
Expressions of interest are generally used to gather offers for properties without disclosing the price for which the vendor is prepared to sell. In this instance, the agent has set the quote price at $14 million.
The Victorian-style home in Darling Point in Sydney was built circa 1840.
It has uninterrupted and expansive 180 degree views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the city skyline and Sydney’s North Shore from every level.
Let’s take a look.
