Tidy profit for Newport home
THE first lady of cruising Sarina Bratton (inset) and husband Ray have sold their Newport waterfront.
It took over 200 days before its mid-week sale.
And it only came after a price amendment from $44 million to $4.3 million hopes down to $3.75 million to $4.1 million.
It’s still a tidy profit for the couple who paid $1.53 million lion for the Prince Alfred Pde dress circle home in 2000.
LJ Hooker agents Andrew Mappin and David Watson sold the home.
Bratton created the market-leading Orion Expedition Cruises in 2005, and was then appointed Asia Pacific chair of Ponant Cruises in 2013.
The couple remodelled the home on its 1370sq m parcel in 2012. There is a shared jetty on Horseshoe Cove.
Spanning two levels, the elevated home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and a swimming pool that overlooks the water.
