Two swimming pools, one indoor and one outdoor, are also notable features of the home as is its cinema, gymnasium, two internal lifts and a separate function centre.

Ganeden’s former owners, prominent lawyer John Landerer and his wife Michelle, put the property on the market in June, 2019.

Mr Landerer bought the first of three homes in 1988 before purchasing the two other houses in the mid 90s.

The exact price is not known but sources say it was above the $60million asking price and believed to be from a Chinese buyer who’d kept an eye on the property for more than a year, Domain reported. 

Ganeden is also famously next door to James Packer’s La Mer which sold for $70million in 2015 – Australia’s fourth most expensive house.

Mr Landered had been offered $62million for the home back in 2016 before it was ever put on the market but the deal didn’t go through.

A $100million Point Piper estate currently holds the title of the country’s most expensive home. 

Atlassian co-founder Mike Cannon-Brookes became the proud new owner in 2018.
