Up, up and away: Qantas boss Alan Joyce and husband trade up to a historic 15-room mansion with a $19million price tag

  • They paid $19million for the palatial home which has incredible harbour views
  • The Mosman mansion even has its own shark-netted ocean pool as well as a jetty 

Qantas boss Alan Joyce has splashed out on a sprawling $19million waterfront mansion overlooking Sydney harbour.

Joyce, 55, and his husband Shane Lloyd bought the palatial 1908 Federation residence in Mosman on the city’s lower north shore, trading up from their inner city penthouse at The Rocks.

The 15-room home has six bedrooms and multiple living areas, including outdoor living spaces on two massive decks overlooking the busy bay.

Joyce and Lloyd’s new 631 square metre home was completely rebuilt in 2015 with Seattle architect Paul Moon transforming the house into a modern classic, with the help of Lovett Custom Homes.

Now it is an enormous three-level home, set above a large three-level parterre garden that leads to a direct deep waterfront access.

At the water’s edge it has a jetty that could accommodate a 7.6 metre sailing boat, which might come in handy with the Sydney amateur sailing club located directly across Mosman Bay from the property.
