Despite the roller coaster share price, Anthony Eisen the boss of the controversial by now pay later lender, Afterpay has bought on Wategos Beach at Byron Bay.

It's the holiday home previously rented by the likes of Kate Moss and Elle Macpherson, who paid $14,000 a week.

It was sold by Boorowa farmer Charlie Arnott, of the Arnott’s Biscuits family to the boss of the ASX-listed payday lender.

This week, Kim Kardashian promoted the digital lender which has been attracting the supervisory interest of the Australian Senate and banking regulators given debt vulture accusations. 

Arnott bought the Marine Parade property in 2009 for $5.5 million from Sausage Software founder Steve Outtrim.   

Overlooking Wategos Beach, is the epitome of a classic beach house.

Set on the exclusive Marine Parade, The White House has been designed to frame the expansive ocean views from its elevated north facing location.

Four of the five bedrooms have ocean views, while the hub of the home is the second level open plan living and dining area which opens out to a large ocean facing entertaining deck.

The top floor of the striking tri-level home is occupied by the master retreat which has its own ensuite and private balcony, also facing the beach.

The White House sits a few houses down from the Byron Bay record breaker, which has stood since 2006.

Sydney developer Danny Goldberg paid $16 million for Wategos House, a six bedroom beachfront set on 1,500 square metres opposite the popular Rae's on Wategos restaurant.

Boorowa farmer Charlie Arnott, of the Arnott’s Biscuits family, secured around $7.6 million.

Known as The White House, it was listed in September 2017 with initial hopes of $8.9 million, and sold after 90 days on the market by Ruth Gotterson, of McGrath, but the deal then fell through.

Eisen was found late last month as the replacement buyer.
