$55m Vaucluse waterfront trophy home is the most viewed property in Sydney’s eastern suburbs
The $55 million absolute waterfront Vaucluse trophy home of agribusinessman and investment banker Garrick Hawkins and his wife, Evelyn, officially hit the market this week and already it’s attracting attention.
The six-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion on a 1700 sqm block in prestigious Coolong Rd arrived on realestate.com.au only four days ago but already it’s the most viewed property in Sydney’s east.
With its unobstructed northerly harbour views and world-class boating facilities, little wonder the incredible residence listed with Ken Jacobs and Darren Curtis of Christies is so popular.

Mr Jacobs told the Wentworth Courier: “We’ve had a few inquiries, but no sale yet … if we sold everything in the first week I’d be able to retire!”
If the home sells before the year’s out, it could well be the biggest deal for 2019.
As the Wentworth Courier reported recently, a Hong Kong buyer made an offer on the $60 million ‘Ganeden’, which has seven bedrooms, three kitchens, two internal lifts and a 20-car garage.
But still no sale for the Vaucluse mansion at 38a Wentworth Rd, which has iconic views of Sydney Harbour, the Bridge and the Opera House.
It’s owned by leading corporate lawyer John Landerer and is being marketed by Michael Pallier, managing director of Sotheby’s International.
The Hawkins estate at 21 Coolong Rd has been sitting quietly on the Christies website since early July, with the couple moving to England to live close to their six grandchildren.
The sprawling mansion was designed by leading architect Andre Porebski with interiors by Thomas Hamel.
LJ Hooker Double Bay principal Bill Malouf this week said a Sunday Telegraph report linking the Italianate mansion Bomera in Potts Point to steel baron Sanjeev Gupta was “absolute rubbish”.
The report said there’d been an offer of more than $35 million.
