Seasong at Palm Beach sells after nearly two years

The Palm Beach sandstone mansion Seasong has been sold by the Playoust family.

It had been on the market for almost two years with an initial asking price of around $15 million reported back in October 2015.

Its last advertised price had it pegged at between $8.8 million and $9.2 million.

Julian, Nicholas, Margarita and Luke Playoust, who were the beneficiaries of the Tattersall gambling empire, listed the weekender after it had been in the family for nearly five decades.

The land, that sits between Florida Road and Mitchell Road, was initially secured by patriarch architect John Playoust in 1967.

He paid $15,000 for the block in 1967 when he bought from Bible Garden founder Gerald Hercules Robinson.

The family then spent $2.55 million in 2006 expanding the holding, again buying from Robinson. This 700 sqm block was a garden installed by Robinson.

The original cottage in the first purchase was rebuilt by architects John Hooghuis and Luke Playoust to create a striking three level home on the cliff of Florida Road.

Set at the sheltered ocean pool end of Palm Beach, Seasong has six bedrooms and a four person elevator.

The home has northerly beach views to Barrenjoey Headland, Pittwater and the Central Coast.

Christie's International agent Ken Jacobs marketed the home in conjunction with David Watson at LJ Hooker Avalon.
