Emerald City can reveal that the couple spent $9 million on a four-bedroom, harbor-view Vaucluse home last October. The couple already shared 11 investment properties together, including a Shoal Bay weekender and an apartment complex in Elizabeth Bay.

Spira, 23, is the son of socialite Lizzie Buttrose – the niece of Scary Buttrose – and is the founder and head of corporate credit brokerage Pineapple Funding. Ms. Maguire, 37, is the executive director of media relations agency The Capital Network.
