Corporate lawyer Guy Jalland buys $8.75 million Darling Point harbourfront

The Melbourne corporate lawyer Guy Jalland has bought a slice of the Oxley Bushells tea, Darling Point family estate on the Darling Point harbourfront.

Around $8.75 million was secured for the property last traded in the 1970s as one of three houses bought around their historic holding, Carthona.

The two-storey house comes with four bedrooms, an office and three Art Deco bathrooms.

It sits on a 1,087-square-metre Sutherland Crescent block, having been built in the 1930s. It retains terrazzo finishes, curved feature windows and solid-timber joinery. Its lounge, dining and family areas take advantage of the harbour views. There is also an interior courtyard.

Its garaging once made the headlines given its distinctive Glenn Murcutt style. Murcutt also undertook some alterations to the house during the late 1980s.

Guy Jalland has been a longtime adviser to James Packer including being general counsel of Publishing & Broadcasting Limited from 2004 to 2007.

He has also been a director of the Melbourne Football Club until his July 2013 resignation.

Jalland recently sold his Dawes Point, Sydney apartment for $3.05 million through McGrath Estate Agents. It was bought in 2009 for $2.3 million from the McCuaig family.
