Raine and Horne

Victoria Road includes a tennis court, large reception hall and a commercial-size kitchen. In September 2016, Raine & Horne handled the sale of one of Camperdown’s most historic homes – Inverteil. Originally built in 1892 on behalf of Alexander Donald, a local engineer, Inverteil attracted a sale price of $1,970,500 having previously sold for $220,000 in September 1991. In November 2016, the firm was tasked with the sale of a magnificent three-bedroom, two-level penthouse at Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo – the large-scale redevelopment of Sydney’s former shipping and stevedoring centre. The penthouse, which has absolute water frontage and uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour, attracted significant international interest with around 80 percent of enquiries coming from overseas buyers, mostly from Asia, and secured a sale price of $6 million. The nation’s capital saw Raine & Horne hit a new record in mid-2014, when a Canberra-based consortium, led by property developer Terry Shaw, paid $63.75 million to purchase five blocks of land, some fronting the city’s iconic thoroughfare Constitution Avenue. The total land size was 6.4 hectares, and the sale result far exceeded the $45 million expectations of the Australian Capital Territory Land Development Agency.

The two-storey apartment features four bedrooms, six bathrooms, a pool with ocean views and a grand staircase. And, in 2016, along the far north Queensland coastline where Captain Thomas Raine once sailed, Raine & Horne managed the sale of The Edge, a Port Douglas bespoke home, which was awarded 2015 Queensland Architecture Award for Building of the Year. The unique precast concrete home was sold to a Sydney buyer for $4.85 million. In 2021, Raine & Horne completed an off-market sale of the highly prized 109-hectare Burradoo property, Sutherland Park in the Southern Highlands, for close to $50 million.
