Cricketer Nathan Lyon's Port Hacking buyer pulls out

Cricketer Nathan Lyon's Port Hacking buyer pulls out

Cricketer Nathan Lyon thought he’d offloaded his Sutherland Shire waterfront before he left for the World Cup back in May — but, with the buyer opting not to complete, it is back up for sale.

It might be a blessing in disguise for the spinner, given the property market turnaround. He had sold the Port Hacking home for about $3.85 million.

Buyers are being told it now it has a $3.8 million to $4.2 million guide.

The waterfront mansion had been his matrimonial home with Mel Waring, mother of his two children. Lyon is now with Emma McCarthy.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home with deep waterfront and boat ramp was bought in 2016, the year before his split from his Waring.

Overlooking the Royal National Park, it was bought off market for $3.8 million from Charlie and Jill Yankos.

Ray White agent Matthew Johnston is again marketing the property.

Johnston, in conjunction with Jill Yankos, sold Lyon’s last home, an Oyster Bay battle-axe that fetched $2,070,000 in 2016.

Lyon and Waring had paid $1.4 million in 2014 and renovated the riverfront property into a four-bedroom home. In 2018 Lyon sold his Vaucluse investment.

He had paid $1.1 million for the 1970s apartment in 2015, which became a rental at $800 a week before it sold for $1,085,000.
