Alan Jones moves back into his $10.5million Sydney apartment overlooking the Opera House after selling his $17.5million country estate in southern NSW

Alan Jones has revealed he’ll be moving back into his $17.5million Circular Quay apartment after selling his sprawling farmhouse in southern NSW.

The radio broadcaster sold his country property at Fitzroy Falls west of Kiama on the NSW south coast last month after it was on the market for a whopping $17.5million.

Alan, 81, told The Daily Telegraph on Sunday, he will remain in Sydney following the sale amid rumours he is relocating to Queensland.

Alan Jones, 61, has revealed he will be moving back into his $10.5million Sydney apartment after selling his sprawling $17.5million farmhouse in southern NSW

‘I really did only spent about 35 days a year in the Highlands prior to Covid so I will be very happy in my apartment,’ he said.

He continued: ‘If my impoverishment means I am condemned to look at the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour every day there really is nothing to be melancholy about.’

His Circular Quay flat is located in the Bennelong Apartments, also known colloquially as the Toaster, which he snapped up for $10.5million in 2017.

The property has two residences, a one two-bedroom home where Alan lived and an  eight-bedroom bungalow that had been home for the Taylors.

It is understood it sold under the asking price for $15million, on a walk-in, walk-out basis, where furniture could be snapped up along with the home. 

The purchase included a forest called Wombat Woods, with large sculptures of a giraffe and elephant on the grounds. 

The grounds include a lake and an island, with landscaped gardens, stables, tennis courts and a two-bedroom caretaker’s cottage.

The stable complex, built in 2016, has six boxes, a wash bay, tack/feeding room, a kitchenette and laundry facilities. 

There are 12 horse yards with post-and-rail fencing along with a floodlit dressage arena, with the property ideal for hobby farmers to keep horses, cattle and sheep.

Alan bought the property in 2003 for $2.6million, before linking the two major residences with a central courtyard in a major refit.
