The focus tends to be on her brother Justin, the hospitality industry czar, but Bettina Hemmes, who also works in the family business, quietly got a weekend in Palm Beach.

No pricing details have yet emerged, but the Pacific Rd hillside home built in the 1930s likely sold for slightly less than its envisioned target of $7 million after being passed on to an offer of $6.5 million seller.

The rustic property, which still has the electric Kooka in the kitchen, has had only four owners in the past 100 years.

Last year, Justin sold a property in Morning Bay, near Pittwater, for $5.5 million.
