Byron Bay’s prestige market is showing no signs of slowing despite the state’s broader housing woes, with a record house price sale on Wategos Beach over the weekend of more than $22 million.

The beach shack on Marine Parade secures the beachfront’s reputation as the state’s premier address north of Sydney. McGrath’s Will Phillips would not reveal the exact sale figure, confirming only that it topped the 2020 high set when RipCurl founder Brian Singer bought the prestigious strip for $22 million from recruitment industry boss Geoff Morgan and his wife Ros.

Local sources are tipping a result of more than $22.5 million. It is one of only 12 houses on the cul-de-sac fronting Wategos Beach, and records show it comes 25 years after it was bought by retired graziers John and Ilone Small.

It last traded in 1997 for $1.225 million when sold by the family of the late Eric Gilchrist, the grandfather to near neighbour and F45 co-founder Adam Gilchrist.
