Fashion industry veteran Peter Weiss has been the latest buyer on Palm Beach’s luxury market offering.

The Pittwater weekender of rag trader Gordon Smith and his wife, Julianne has been snapped up in quick time by Peter and his wife, Doris. They have always wanted a sandy west facing weekender on the peninsula.

No wonder as the glamorous retreat was designed by architect Walter Barda and built by Shane Kavanagh. The timber and stone build within the lush waterfront garden and swimming pool was commissioned by the Smiths in 2010, long after they bought the 1137 sqm double block in 1999 for $1,625,000 from Judith Larcombe, when the property’s main feature was its big old boat house. 

Peter Robinson, of LJ Hooker Palm Beach, was asking $12 million, but another local agent nailed the deal at a slightly lower, but still double digit price.

One is left to wonder what Peter and Doris will do with their hillside architectural gem, the pavilion style Peter Muller designed home that they bought in 2010 for $3.5 million.

Earlier this year Weiss sold his Southern Highlands retreat Wollombi to the Cottle construction family for $12 million.

It was a 600 hectare estate with an exquisite farmhouse at the end of a 2.5 kilometre driveway and can produce up to 6000 bottles of pinot gris and 3000 bottles of pinot noir in a good season.
