The whispers that Sydney identities Anthony Bell and Kelly Landry had bought a Noosa waterfront home have been confirmed.

But the story behind the big purchase on Hideaway Island suggests the family are now seeking to turn the page on their tumultuous maritial breakdown.

They were the mystery $10.3 million buyers on Noosa Sound, which set a then record price for the Queensland town late last year.

“Kelly and I have purchased the house in Noosa as she and the kids have moved up there," Anthony Bell advised.

"I travel up there on the weekends and I can happily report Kelly and I are working as a team to co-parent our beautiful children, who love the area and are enrolled in a local school."

The couple have two young daughters, one at primary school and one at pre-school.

“Anthony and I are in the happy position of being co-parents and focussing our energies in our children to ensure they can enjoy a happy upbringing in this beautiful part of Australia," Landry added.

The recently built house on two parcels was rated HIA Queensland home of the year when built with concrete, steel, timber, stone and glass.

Designed by Paul Clout and spanning over 800 sqm of living space, the home has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, an award winning kitchen, study, media room and self-contained caretaker wing. 

There are a number of internal courtyards integrating indoor and outdoor living.

A 25 metre solar heated infinity pool and outdoor kitchen overlooks the 45 metres of water frontage which features a private sandy beach, two jetty's and a boat ramp.

The waterfront sale was secured by Tom Offermann Real Estate agent John Dover, who had an $11.9 million price guide.

Last weekend The Sunday Telegraph reported their make peace endeavours. 

Their family home at Watsons Bay has been sold for around $18 million to the Calligeros hotelier family with Bell living as a bachelor in a clifftop Dover Heights home he bought off Channel 7 television personality Larry Emdur for $11.5 million.

The Noosa agent John Dover said he had multiple buyers submitting eight digit contracts.

"We meet a lot of people who lament not buying here years ago, and I am certain that history will repeat itself," he said.

"It is an expansive home with lavish detailing that bathes the home in vibrant tropical tones," Oliver said.

The sale eclipsed the record set by the Offermann team when a beachfront home on Sunshine Beach fetched $9.3 million. The buyer was Australia's richest female executive Maxine Horne.

Since then there have been sales of Pat Rafter's iconic seven-bedroom, five-bathroom house located on exclusive Seaview Terrace at Sunshine Beach.

Another of the recent sales was an apartment in Hastings Street that fetched $6.9 million.
