Wing House, the Byron Bay trophy home designed by architect Peter Stutchbury, has been sold for $5.9 million to a local buyer.

Overlooking Wategos Beach, the four-bedroom house comes with 20 metre lap pool.

The hillside location cost $1.35 million in 2001, with the Stutchbury-build in 2012.

It was sold by Robert and Deborah Wild through Nicolette Wijngaarden of Unique Estates.

Wing House, which takes its name from its wing-shaped roof, was originally listed with hopes above $7 million, but was then revised to offers over $6 million. 

The Wilds, joint directors of the Australian College of Massage, have bought luxury home at Coopers Shoot with an infinity pool and views across Byron Bay for $7.9 million (pictured below).

Set in the old part of Byron Bay, a home on a 1,000 square metre lot at 60 Kingsley Street (pictured below) sold at the $3.5 million asking price through Graham Dunn and Jeremy Bennett at Byron Bay property Sales to Melbourne buyers. It last sold at $840,000 in 2002, with the rebuild winning a HIA renovation award.

"They had been looking for about 18 months. They had done their homework, they saw the market was moving so they jumped in," Dunn told Title Tattle. 

The prior township record was $2,705,000 on Cooper Street which also sold through Byron Bay property Sales.

Escaping the southern winter cold, Melbournite Ned Rockman recently purchased through Byron Bay property Sales. “I’ve loved it up here for many years” he says.

It is a five hectare holding at Newrybar which cost $1.75 million last year. “I’m almost 45 and I don’t want to spend the second half of my life in Melbourne. I want to spend it here”.

Rockman is not the only well-known Melbourne purchaser of late. Portland House director Stephen Hains, son of intensely private Melbourne billionaire investor David Hains, has also bought into Byron Bay.

Hains spent nearly $2.77 million on a beach house at Belongil, despite nearby coastal-erosion issues. He got a three-bedroom 1962 coastal shack on 1922 square metres on Childe Street. 

Flight Centre co-founder Graham Turner's wife Jude also bought a beach shack for $2.77 million on the Belongil peninsula, on the edge of the Byron township in 2012.
