Levantine Hill Winery director Samantha Jreissati has sold her half-floor Eureka Tower suite, while her father – property developer Elias Jreissati – is still trying to unload his level 82 penthouse.
The wealthy real estate development family Jreissati takes steps in the Eureka Tower.
Levantine Hill winery director and daughter of developer Elias Jreissati, Samantha Jreissati, has sold her chic penthouse for an undisclosed sum under the $8 million-$8.8 million range.
Her father’s full-floor penthouse on Level 82 is still for sale with a huge price tag of $25 million — $3 million more than when it was first listed in 2019.

Ms. Jreissati also first listed her massive four-bedroom suite at 7301/7 Riverside Quay in Southbank in 2019 with an asking price of $8.8 million.
After failing to sell, she rented out the 300 sq. ft. pad during 2021 for a whopping $5,000 a week.
Ms. Jreissati, who is also the general counsel of her father’s company, Bensons Property Group, has relisted the glamorous home this year with a price guide of $8 million to $8.8 million.
RT Edgar Albert Park director Gerald Betts, who also has the listing of Mr Jreissati, would not comment on the sale amount but said Ms Jreissati was “happy with the price”.
“She didn’t quite get what she wanted, but is happy to move on…she doesn’t need it anymore,” said Mr Betts.
The sale comes as Ms Jreissati and her family have moved into her new home in Toorak – a luxury home she also bought in 2019 for around $8 million, former Australian Competition and Consumer Chairperson.
Ms. Jreissati paid $4.75 million for the Eureka Tower path in 2018, but completed extensive renovations over the years, such as the installation of a swish new kitchen.
Her father and wife Colleen are still trying to unload their 676-square-foot penthouse after plans to downsize to Level 85, the only remaining airframe in the building.
Mr Betts said he had “always got people looking” at the trophy’s house, which offered panoramic views of the city’s skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows.
It also features five bedrooms, three powder rooms, two kitchens and a private elevator lobby.
“It’s that kind of premium property,” Mr Betts added.
