Dick Smith’s daughter’s new Sydney addition to her $25 million property portfolio is in tears
James and Hayley Bailey have added an $11.85 million unit to their property portfolio, the couple run their luxury lodge business in Australia and overseas Hayley is the daughter of philanthropist and entrepreneur Dick Smith
The daughter of a luxury lodge founder and Aussie entrepreneur Dick Smith has won an $11.85 million apartment with a wrap-around balcony and views of Sydney Harbour.
Hayley Bailey and her husband James have opened a three-bedroom luxury unit at the Pier development at 19 Hickson Road in Walsh Bay – taking their residential portfolio to a sky-high $25 million.
But the impressive catalog is dwarfed by their vast range of luxury lodges, launched in 2003 through their company Belly Lodges.
The daughter of Dick Smith – Australia’s most recognized adventurer and philanthropist – shares a passion for travel and exploration with her partner James.
It’s unclear how the couple plans to use their new Walsh Bay unit, which overlooks the harbor near Blues Point on the McMahons Point peninsula, Domain reported.
The 238-square-meter-unit has a wrap-around entertainer’s balcony and is part of a complex with 24-hour concierge, pool, gym, spa and sauna.

The unit has a well-appointed granite kitchen, Miele gas appliances, ducted air conditioning and built-in wardrobes.
It is the latest and most expensive addition to the couple’s massive $25 million residential property portfolio.
Over the past few years the couple has purchased homes on the North Beach, including waterfront properties in Manly and Avalon Beach.
The pair bought the Manly home in 2021 for $7.2 million.
Millers Pointe McGrath handled the sale of the Walsh Bay unit whose apartment originally sold for $3,395,000 nearly 20 years ago.
It is owned by the eminent architect Peter Muller who bought it in the name of his wife Carole.

The luxury home was part of the estate of Mr Muller who died aged 95 in February.
But the couple’s residential portfolio pales in comparison to the stock managed by their company, Bailey Lodges.
Luxury stays include accommodation on Lord Howe Island, Uluru, the Daintree Rainforest and the Barossa Valley.
The award-winning Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island is being rebuilt after it was burnt down during the 2020 bushfires – and is due to open by December 2023.
The company also offers accommodation at ‘three extraordinary wilderness destinations’ in Canada, New Zealand and Chile.
