Icebreaker owner's luxury mansion in Auckland's Herne Bay for sale
Icebreaker owner Jeremy Moon's luxury multi-million-dollar mansion in Auckland's Herne Bay is up for sale.
The clothing company founder's six-bedroom, four-bathroom property was open for inspection on Sunday.
It has been listed for sale by negotiation and was expected to attract an enormous price tag, with the house selling for $5.25m when it was bought by Moon in 2012.
Its rateable value is $4.85m, according to Auckland Council's most recent 2014 valuation.

An Icebreaker spokeswoman said the house was being sold due to a marriage separation and that Moon did not want to comment.
The listing of the 1246 square-meter property describes it as a "grand opportunity" with "stained glass, columns, panelling, exquisite plaster work and many fine fireplaces retained throughout the generous, well-proportioned rooms, glowing with rich timber floors".
The backyard has a pool and pool-side cabana guest house, while the basement includes a wine cellar, gym and double garage.
"Enjoy summer days on the romantic verandahs, or the balcony with wide views to the Harbour and beyond," the listing read.
Moon founded the Icebreaker company in Wellington in 1994 and its apparel was now sold in 3000 stores across 45 countries.
He is the current executive chairman after handing over the chief executive role last year to former Air New Zealand boss Rob Fyfe.
