Allianz Australia chairman John Curtis and wife Anna have spent $2,625,000 on a farm in the Illawarra district. 

They've settled on Willowglen, a 43 hectare parcel in Foxground complete with an early 20th century classic weatherboard farm home.

The property had been run as a productive beef farm with Curtis intends to continue.

It has machinery and old dairy infrastructure. 

LJ Hooker Nowra agent Patrick Tynan sold the property which locals suggested has the best farm land in Foxground.

The couple are based at the historic Darling Point sandstone mansion, Craigholme.

They paid $1,615,000 for the 1850s home designed by colonial architect Edmund Blacket in 1993.

Four years ago they sought buyers at around $20 million for the home on the Yarrannabee Road dress circle. 

Curtis was previously the chairman at St George Bank and deputy chair at Westpac.
