Golfer Craig Parry sells Abbotsford home for suburb record
Australian golfer Craig Parry has sold his impressive waterfront Abbotsford home for almost $10 million.
The result has also set a new suburb record, after breaking the previous $9.5 million record set by the house next door in October 2017.
According to CoreLogic data, the two properties dwarf the third highest price in the suburb of $5.215 million, that was set by 25 Abbotsford Pde in 2015.

Parry’s home sold to a local inner west family a week before an expressions of interest campaign was set to close.
The result is just below the $10 million price guide that Black Diamondz agent Tim Le and LJ Hooker’s Jim Kapeleris had on the property.
Mr Le said there was incredible interest in the home over with campaign from local, interstate and overseas buyers from Asia.
“It was a great campaign, and we were inundated with more than 250 inquires in the property,” he said.
“This shows that there are still plenty of buyers seeking prestige homes in this price range.”
A three-time PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit winner and two-time champion on the PGA Tour, Parry has long been one of the nation’s top golfers.
He has owned the property for 25 years, after paying $825,000 for it in 1994, according to CoreLogic.
The Abbotsford home is one of the finest in the suburb and with 1620sqm, it is one of the biggest waterfront blocks in the suburb.
The property of course comes with a putting green in the backyard, as well as a tennis court, jetty and swimming pool.
Inside there are four bedrooms, including the main with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite spa, while there is also a home office, theatre, steam room, sauna and second study area.
A wet bar, games room and commercial grade wet bar are all on the lower level.
Mr Parry is planning to downsize to his weekender on the northern beaches in Newport, that he purchased in 2003 for $3.2 million.
