Lisa Keighery has listed her Snapperman’s Beach, Palm Beach retreat with $17 million hopes. The beachfront, set on the prized Iluka Rd, is being marketed by its McGrath agent William Manning as a classic contemporary home.
“It is the epitome of beachside luxury and style,” Manning said.
Keighery, who used architect Alexander Roth along with Marco Meneguzzi for the interiors, is now seeking a Southern Highlands cottage project, and to buy back into the Sydney market.
Her home was bought for $7,555,000 in 2007, a year before her fashion designer husband Mark Keighery died, having fought cancer for 10 years.
Her listing follows the recent $9 million nearby purchase by Anthony Scali, making the retail family’s third buy. The Mitchell family had paid $72,500 in 1977. Goldman Sachs’ Zac Fletcher bought the adjoining building block for $10.35 million.
The top sale on Iluka Rd remains Uncle Toby’s founder Doug Shears, who bought Anakela for $15 million in 2007 from the late grocery tycoon Jim Fleming.
