6 metre wide Darling Point home sells for $15.5M in just nine days

Sydney’s skinniest harbourfront home, previously owned by the late Lady Susan Renouf, has sold for $15.5 million, snapped up by a Melbourne couple before its February 12 auction date.

At just six metres wide, the Darling Point residence was only listed for sale on December 3, according to

CoreLogic records show the last time the property sold, in June 2014, it fetched $6.3 million.

While the home might appear narrow from the outside, but there’s plenty to love inside the luxury four-bedroom home.


With its own private beach, the rare absolute waterfront had only been on the market for nine days, before its new owners paid the full asking price.

According to the listing for 3A Carthona Ave on, the home “offers a world of marine lifestyle, and a rare convenience of harbourside living, all of which is just a 7-minute boat commute from the home’s sea wall through to the heart of Sydney’s CBD”.


“Taking from classic British Georgian style influences, this home incorporates beautifully detailed interiors, harmoniously fusing classic elegance, with contemporary present-day comforts,” the listing reads.

“Engineered to maximise the homes enviable North facing position, every level of the property leads out to uninterrupted views across Sydney Harbour, Manly heads and beyond.


“With convenient level parking for two vehicles at the front street level of the home, you are welcomed to a stunning travertine tiled entrance foyer, accompanied by a floor to ceiling marble bathroom.”

The home was sold by Ray White Eastern Beaches agent Benjamin Goodwin.
