THIS Bronte apartment — owned by former Goldman Sachs investment banker AdamGregory and his PR wife Eve Mackinnon— looks like paradise.
“It’s the best offering on the coast,” gun beachside agent, Simon Exleton, of McGrath said.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit with a double garage is in the tightly held Wimbourne complex at 30/2 Pacific St, and has expectations of $3.7 million at its November 10 auction.
It commands panoramic ocean views across Bronte Beach to North Bondi and beyond.
Wimbourne is just down the hill from where the 28-year-old first-home buyers, Atlassian duo Josh Devenny and his wife, Aimie, bought the dilapidated two-bedroom unit at 3/23 Pacific St, for $1,377,000 — $377,000 above reserve, on Saturday.
The Wimbourne apartment is a completely different prospect.
After Gregory and Mackinnon bought it for $1.85 million in 2011, they called in the award-winning architect Hannah Tribe.
The property has undergone a complete transformation and featured in Habitus magazine.
The block, too, has recently had an $8 million makeover that included new 36sqm balconies.
Gregory left Goldman Sachs in 2016 to set up a private investment and ventures firm, Light Warrior, withRadek Sali, the ex-CEO of Swisse Vitamins.
Gregory and Mackinnon, a senior PR operative with NAC Media Group, have moved home to Melbourne with their children and bought a home in Toorak that they’re renovating.
