Landmark sale of the iconic 1880s Victorian-style heritage listed ‘Cleveland’ property

By Danielle Banton

Evan Williams and Michael Finger from Ray White Double Bay have recently secured the landmark sale of the iconic 1880s Victorian-style heritage listed ‘Cleveland’ property in Darling Point.

The property was successfully sold under the hammer at auction to a Chinese buyer for $7.7 million on Thursday the 25th of June.

Cleveland was built by the same builder who constructed the landmark Swifts property which is located further down the road.

Ray White NSW Business Development Executive Feng Qiu assisted with the sale, assisting the buyers through the auction process.

The three-level property is framed by Harbour Bridge views, and includes 7 bedrooms sitting on 1,045sqm of land.

Selling agent Evan Williams was pleased with the outcome of the sale, “both the vendor and buyer were extremely happy with the result.”

“It’s an iconic property with a special piece of history attached, the new owner loves the property just as much as our client does.”

Former owner Dr. Barry Barker said he will leave the property with some special memories, including the wedding of his daughter and many special parties.

Dr. Barker purchased the property in 1996 for $2.35 million and is happy with the result of the sale.

He hopes to see the new owners enjoy the entertaining aspect of the home.
