Former NSW premier Mike Baird has been doing a lot of whale watching since he quit the state’s top job in early 2017, having timed his departure from politics with the purchase of a clifftop house in North Curl Curl.
But neighbours can expect to see a lot less of Baird’s ocean-watching from his north-facing terrace in the future, after he and his wife Kerryn listed the family home on Thursday.

The couple are said to be downsizing now that their three kids have all finished school, handing the listing to Clarke & Humel’s Cherie Humel and James Eyden, who sold it to them.
Baird purchased the five-bedroom home with a swimming pool, spa and separate self-contained apartment in early 2017 for $3.6 million, no doubt partly funded by his new job at the time as chief customer officer at NAB.

Baird resigned from NAB two years ago, and despite being touted as an ideal Liberal candidate to contest the seat of Warringah, held by Independent Zali Steggall, he has taken to the aged care sector as chief executive of HammondCare.
Still with the former senior executives of NAB cashing in on the family home amid a widespread market downturn is Joseph Healy, co-founder and chief executive of Judo Bank.
McGrath’s Glenn Curran has a guide of $11 million to $12 million for the six-bedroom, six-bathroom house on almost 2000 square metres with a tennis court and swimming pool.
The Killara residence was a relatively new build when Healy and his wife Susan purchased it in 2012 for $5.5 million, three years before he and David Hornery set up the specialist business lender.

Sotheby’s Ben Cohen had a guide of $9.5 million on the Healy home, and secured just that amount, ending more than 20 years of ownership since they bought it for $2.3 million.
