Agents at Graham Wall Real Estate announced on Monday that an offer had been accepted.

They did not say how much the house sold for, but the figure is believed to be between $18.5m and $24m.

‘After years of coming and going, there’s finally been a successful sale of the famous Te Rere Cove’, Graham Wall told the New Zealand Herald.  

‘It’s been sold to a passport-holding New Zealander. Will they live there? We’re not quite sure but it’s a lot of money for a house if you’re not going to live there’.
