Golfer Craig Parry has sold a large waterfront home in Sydney’s Abbotsford for just under $10 million.
The price sets a record for the suburb, about 10 kilometres west of the CBD.
Coincidentally, the Abbotsford Parade property is next door to the mansion which previously held the title of the suburb’s priciest deal since selling for $9.5 million in 2017.
The agencies fielded more than 250 inquiries for the property, which occupies an approximate 1878 square metre plot – one of the largest in Abbotsford.
Mr Parry paid $825,000 for the home in 1994.
Since modernised, the dwelling includes four bedrooms, two studies, theatre, steam room and sauna. It is surrounded by a tennis court, swimming pool, putting green, pontoon, boat shed and jetty, as well as an outdoor entertainment zone with commercial grade wet bar.
Mr Parry intends to downsize to another waterfront property, in Newport, which it is reported he bought for $3.2 million in 2003.
In recent years the golfer, who has celebrated 23 career victories since turning professional in 1985, has in recent years spread his time between Sydney and Orlando, Florida.
