It comes after Hemmes sold his stunning Pittwater home for $5.5million in December, 2021. 

Hemmes acquired the home just five years earlier, when he purchased the nearby Newport Arms, a historic hotel located on the shores of Pittwater. 

The chic weekender featured three bedrooms and a large open-plan living area, perfectly suited for entertaining.
