Funds manager emerges as buyer of Robby Ingham's Gerringong estate

The Kiwi-born funds manager Charles Gibbon and wife Claire have emerged as the $11.3 million buyer of the Gerringong oceanfront estate of fashion pioneer Robby Ingham.

The Gibbon's are no strangers buying vast land and building having constructed their retreat on six hectares in the nearby Shoalhaven town Bellawongarah.

Ingham and wife Sarah listed it late last year with $10 million hopes through Ray White Gerringong agent Neil Campbell after owning the 40 hectare former dairy farm since 2012.

Despite gaining approval for a 10 bedroom Nick Tobias-designed luxury retreat, the family found an alternative retreat, a nearby riverfront holding.

The 3,000 sqm donut shaped house set to have grass on the rooftop came with estimated $5 million building costs.
