The most expensive piece of real estate Down Under has been picked up by Cannon-Brookes, the co-founder of software company Atlassian. Cannon and his wife shelled out a cool $73 million (nearly 530 crore) for the property. The historic 1.12 hectare estate, Fairwater, formerly belonged to late Mary Fairfax, whose family previously owned the Sydney Morning Herald. The lavish water front mansion lied for more than a century in the hands of the Fairfax family, until the death of Lady Mary in September 2017.
"We are delighted with the purchase of Fairwater for our young family and look forward to continuing the legacy of this beautiful Sydney home,” Cannon-Brookes said in a statement. “We love the idea of raising our four young children in this historic property.”
