Former AMP legal counsel Brian Salter sells Longueville property
Longueville has seen another big result following the sale of former AMP chief legal counsel Brian Salter and wife Brigit’s waterfront home.
It was sold at auction on Saturday, with sources indicating it sold around its $10 million guide.
When contacted about the sale, McGrath Lane Cove’s Brent Courtney and Sydney Sotheby’s International Realty’s James McCowan declined to comment about the result.

Once the sale price becomes known, it is expected that the five-bedroom home will either hold the title of the third or fourth most expensive sale price in the Harbourside suburb.
This comes at a time when the median house sale price in Longueville has jumped 6.6 per cent in the past three months to $3.87 million, according to CoreLogic data.
Mr Salter was sacked as AMP’s chief legal counsel in April 2018, after the financial services royal commission heard he was involved in making amendments to an independent report AMP had commissioned from law firm Clayton Utz into the “fee for no service” scandal.
At the time of the scandal, which saw a number of senior AMP executives leave, Mr Salter denied any wrongdoing.
The Salters’ home has three levels and occupies a 1487sqm block. It features a swimming pool and has views over Woodford Bay to the Harbour Bridge and city.
The designer home has been crafted to exude a beach house ambience through a mix of casual and formal living spaces.
Features include a Caesarstone kitchen with Miele appliances, walk-in pantry, gas cooking and a grey and white colour scheme.
The ground level has a storage room, cellar, rumpus room, large laundry with external access and a balcony.
There is also a grand terrace, bamboo garden and a gas heated pool, as well as access to a private beach and mooring facilities.
