The Robertson retreat of property developer John Boyd and his wife Marly has been sold off market in one of the Southern Highlands biggest sales.

The 70 hectare Robertson Park has been bought by the Malouf family from Watsons Bay for around $9 million.

The Boyds, who retain Sydney’s highest art deco residential penthouse atop the ANZ tower on Castle­reagh St, have recently finished their Palm Beach home, so aren't getting down to the Highlands.

Although the couple, who married in 2012, have their eye on another renovation project in the Highlands.

It was 1999 when Boyd bought the unfinished home for $2.55 million from the grazier Daryl Isles who had bought it for $925,000 in 1993 from Barrie Loiterton.

It came with 180-square sandstone mansion completed in 1996 with about a third of the property fenced for deer.  

John and Marly enlisted the support of interior stylist Monique Sartor of Sartorial Interiors for the home set behind massive iron gates from a French chateau.

Robertson has seen recent sales including Crossways Farm which was bought by Sue Gibson for $5.55 million and Twins Creek Farm, the 62 hectare estate bought by radio host Kyle Sandilands for $2,982,000.
