Primo Smallgoods heir Bradley Hunt had to wait three years to find a buyer for his landmark Clontarf home and even then the first buyer reneged on the deal last year, forcing the house back to the market.

But the onerous sales campaign that started with $12 million hopes is behind him now thanks to local fast bowler Brett Lee and his wife Lana, who have since snapped it up for close to $9 million.

The exact sales result remains a tightly held secret by Cunninghams’ James Haywood, but independent sources say it will be eclipsed by the more than $9 million the Lees scored for their home down the hill in late February.
