  • The heritage-listed property was previously owned by the famous Fairfax family for more than century

A multimillion-dollar Sydney mansion that was once owned by the media-mogul Fairfax family has been deemed Australia’s ‘most covetable’ property.

The 1.12 hectare Point Piper estate was featured on Australia’s Top 50 Mansions in The List’s November 2019 issue, beating out mega-mansions once owned by the likes of James Packer and Lachlan Murdoch.

The heritage-listed home, dubbed Fairwater, now belongs to tech billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes who broke the record for the most expensive residential mansion sale last year when he purchased it for an eye-watering $100million.

The property had been in the Fairfax family for more than a century and was listed for sale after Lady Mary Fairfax’s death last September.
