A waterfront property in Cammeray has possibly doubled the suburb's record with a reputed near $15 million sale.

The property was sold by Jo Mineham, the widow of former PricewaterhouseCooper CEO Leigh Mineham.

They bought in 1998 for $2.48 million commissioning architect Susan Rothwell to design the house which was finished in 2006.

The 1,170 sqm holding features boating amenities including jetty pontoon and deep water mooring for a 15.8 metre boat.

The five bedroom, six bathroom family home has private terrace views of Willoughby Bay.

The classically contemporary home features a banquet sized formal dining room and open plan lounge both fitted with fireplaces.

There is a lower level family room with kitchenette and separate bathroom which can be used as an au pair or guest accomodation.

A home office, a climate controlled wine cellar and a fully tiled, gas heated infinity pool are the most luxurious aspects the record breaking house provides.

Until the sale by Richardson & Wrench Mosman agents Stephen Patrick and Geoff Grist, the record for the lower north shore suburb had stood at $7.25 million since 2008.

Leigh Minehan passed away in December 2011, having retired from PWC a year earlier, but remaining a leading light in advice to the insurance sector. He was Chairman of the Queenwood School Board and a Commodore of the Cruising Yacht Club of Australia.
