Berry nice cottage snapped up
FORMER Stockland boss Matthew Quinn and wife Julie have scored the quick sale of their Berry weekender, as they have intentions of upgrading in the NSW South Coast town.
The Berry property, once known as Gladys, spent just 22 days on the market, well down on the town’s 86 average.
The Quinns paid $710,000 for the 1880s country weatherboard.
The heritage home has since been restored.
The quintessential fourbedroom cottage sits in 1070sqm of gardens.
Carrie Bond at South Coast Properties secured the quick sale, but did not reveal its sale price.
She described the home as one of the historic village’s finest residences, having once accommodated Australian nun Mary McKillop.
Up in Sydney, the couple’s renovated two-bedroom Kirribilli home has been sold quickly too, fetching $3.45 million, just over a year after they paid $2.6 million for it.
McGrath Neutral Bay agent Nigel Mukhi sold the home.
Quinn was managing director of Stockland for 13 years and is currently a non-executive director of Regis Aged Care, CSR Limited and Landcom. He is also and chairman of Class Limited and Carbonxt Group Limited.
