There is an idyllic patio area for Simon, 52, to entertain guests, while interiors take on a neutral colour palette with polished wooden floorboards, whitewashed walls, high ceilings and timber accents.

The reported purchase comes after Simon and his ex-wife Rebecca Rigg, 54, reportedly sold their three-bedroom home in Bronte, Sydney, for almost $17million.

According to Domain in September, the former couple shocked property watchers with the lucrative sale, especially given they purchased the home for just $6.5million back in 2015.

Simon and Rebecca, who announced their separation in January last year after 29 years of marriage, were said to be ‘quietly shopping’ the property before a buyer was confirmed.

Boasting sweeping ocean views and located in one of Sydney’s most sought-after suburbs – the former Baker residence offers the ultimate in coastal living.  

A number of images were listed by CoreLogic following the sale in 2015, with reports revealing the pair made no major improvements on the property after acquiring it.
