The former Australian trade minister Andrew Robb and his wife, Maureen have bought a house in Cremorne Point, as part of their plans to see more of their grandchildren.

The couple who recently quit Melbourne, initially secured a Palm Beach home when they spent $3,735,000 on Indigo, a luxury hilltop home.

It was just across the road from their daughter, Boathouse Group owner Pip Goldsmith, her publican husband Andrew, and their two kids.

Their latest acquisition is at Cremorne Point home which cost $3,985,000. It was advertised as a downsizer oasis close to the city.

Architect Rolf Haefeli designed the property with Feng Shui principles including a Japanese inspired garden with flowing fishponds.

There's space, tranquility, technology and lock up and leave convenience at the 2000-built on 425 sqm.

The home with keyless front door has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study.

McGrath Neutral Bay agents Piers van Hamburg and Alex Myers sold the home at auction after having a $3.5 million guide.

It last traded for $601,000 two decades ago.

The couple sold in Melbourne's bayside suburb, Brighton last year after for $2,655,000.

Robb, who represented the Brighton-based Goldstein electorate in Melbourne between 2004 and 2016, now travels the world piecing together international trade deals, so quick access to the airport had always been a priority in their property reshuffle.
