What is it about the obsession Melbourne’s well-heeled have for Byron Bay’s high-end holiday home market?

That fixation continued this week when former professional AFL player of the 1970s Allan Sinclair sold his Wategos holiday house, Wattai, for $5.6 million to another Melburnian.

LJ Hooker Byron Bay’s Liam Annesley’s sale comes 18 months after it was first listed with another agent with initial ambitions of an $8.2 million result.

Sinclair, whose son Callum plays for Sydney Swans,  bought the property in 2004 for $3.7 million, already with a redesign by Melbourne-based architect Peter Maddison, of Grand Designs Australia.

Meanwhile, closer to Wategos Beach, Melbourne businessman and chief of transport company McAleese, Mark Rowsthorn is 18 months into a sales campaign on his $8.5 million holiday home through LJ Hooker Byron Bay’s Glen Irwin.

Not to be completely left out of the market, a Sydney-based buyer has snapped up the Brownell Drive getaway of Goondiwindi Argus former editor Joe Hoffman and his wife Rosemary for $5.2 million.
